Patients of WakeMed’s Rehabilitation Hospital had the chance to do some holiday shopping for themselves and their loved ones. The WakeMed Foundation, our Rehab team and the Gift Shop at WakeMed Raleigh Campus created a Holiday Market for Rehab patients who are unable to shop for gifts inside local stores this year, thanks to a generous gift from the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin.
.
The special shopping experience, which followed the 3Ws and social distancing guidelines, included music, a gift wrapping station and more. Additionally, WakeMed therapists incorporated aspects of strength exercises and occupational therapy into each patient's shopping session.
.
We are so grateful to receive their donation and support, which had such a positive impact on our patients!

Our pediatric patients were so excited when Santa and his elves popped by for a visit at WakeMed Children’s today! Santa made sure to social distance this year during his visit, but he was still able to see those Christmas lists being held up by our patients and send a wink and a wave their way to spread some cheer to all! 🎅😊
.
Thank you, Cadence of North Raleigh, for holding a toy drive to benefit the pediatric patients at WakeMed Children’s this season and for making sure that Santa knew that we needed a visit and his help in delivering these today!

A couple of weeks ago, WakeMed Children’s accepted over 70 Scentsy Buddies from Scentsy Director, Elisha Shehdan, and her team. Please read Elisha’s “Why” for giving back to WakeMed Children’s.
.
“Late July, our son Lucas became a very sick little boy. He was gradually depleting his iron, and we had no idea. He went from being a happy and energetic baby, to a tired, fussy, pale and zero-desire-to-eat toddler! We had no idea what could be wrong. The pediatrician thought it was just low iron, but my mom instincts felt it was more. Thank God we had a sweet friend who instructed us to take him to WakeMed."
.
"Once we arrived at Wake Med Children’s Emergency Room, we were immediately taken care of. Tests were run and diagnoses were made. Our poor baby had to receive a blood transfusion, iron treatments and a procedure for his intussusceptions. It was truly a nightmare that we were unprepared for! We were in the hospital for three long days, and the Wake Med Staff were amazing! They gave Lucas exceptional care. The doctors were so thorough and explained everything along the way! One special thing they did was provide toys for him. It truly brightened his mood and comforted him while we were there! You can see in the picture that he received a Scentsy buddy! We were so touched by this, that our family decided to give back this season! Our family and members of my Scentsy Team (several of whom also have had wonderful experiences at Wake Med) were able to donate over 70 buddies! All were sponsored by friends, family and local businesses. We pray these buddies will be able to comfort many other children who will also be cared for at Wake Med Children’s Hospital. We are so thankful that our son‘s treatment has allowed him to make a full recovery! We plan to continue donating annually and hope that others will consider donating as well!”

“I have many chronic illnesses that include POTS, EDS Type 3, MCAS and CRPS and many more. It has always been a big mission my whole life, even before getting sick, to make an impact on people’s lives. I am making this mission come alive by doing toy drives, smile packages, awareness videos and sending VOGMASK® to people. I have done toy drives and smile bags and many other projects across NC, VA and OH at many hospitals and RDMH! Making an impact on others lives is what I love to do, and I believe that this mission will continue to grow and continue to help many others in the future!"
.
"My goal with this project is to bring smiles to people’s faces and to help spread awareness of many illnesses and diseases. Not to focus on the illness but to shine light and show others who do not have them not to judge others who may have one. They can do everything you can do; they may just have to learn to adapt in certain ways.”

“We can learn from children. We can learn how to confront life with more faith and courage from children than we do anybody else. We’re making this gift because we believe in the mission and the values and the work being done at the WakeMed system.” – Larry Barbour, president & CEO of North State Bank.
.
The WakeMed Foundation has established a $2M endowment for the WakeMed Children’s Hospital, thanks to a powerful and transformational gift from Larry & Diane Barbour and North State Bank. This endowment, which honors their son Zachary’s life and legacy, will help fund the most critical needs of the WakeMed Children’s Hospital for generations to come. Take a moment to hear directly from Larry Barbour as he speaks about his son, this incredible gift, and their support of WakeMed’s mission.

Our Love Light Family: The McLamb Family

Our Love Light tradition continues this year as we honor a special pediatric patient. This year’s Love Light family is the McLamb family. Two years ago, an x-ray revealed their three-year-old, Tyler, had swallowed a small watch battery. A local urgent care sent him immediately to WakeMed Children’s Emergency Department where his long journey to recovery began.
.
Read about the McLamb's experience at WakeMed Children's where they found a caring, compassionate health care family who gave them the medical care and emotional support they needed to see Tyler through this serious, life-threatening emergency.
.
We invite you to support the WakeMed Foundation’s Love Light campaign. Donations are made in honor or memory of someone special in support of WakeMed Children's.
