Celebrate International Credit Unions Day with Children’s Wisconsin!

This October we are celebrating our amazing partners who continue to make an immeasurable difference in the lives of kids treated at Children’s Wisconsin. Credit unions that participate in Credit Unions for Kids has raised more than $3.4 million for Children’s this year, and a cumulative of more than $200 million nationally since 1996.

When we positively change the health of even one child, we create a ripple effect felt by the community for years to come. When we ensure children can lead healthy, fulfilling lives, we foster the scientists, inventors, artists, and leaders of tomorrow.

Credit unions who fundraise to help change kids’ health are changing the future.

Kids like Noelle, 2.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Noelle was born two weeks early at the local hospital in Escanaba, Michigan. She had breathing problems, and the hospital staff made the decision to have the newborn transported via Children’s Transport fixed-wing air to Children’s Wisconsin in Milwaukee. In Children’s NICU, baby Noelle struggled with infection. She was diagnosed with monosomy 7, a genetic condition that leads to bone marrow failure. She needed a bone marrow transplant to survive, and was able to receive one in December, 2018. During that time, she had a number of complications and became critically ill. She along with her mom, stayed at the Ronald McDonald House while she was monitored at Children’s for signs of transplant rejection and received speech, physical and occupational therapy. Noelle is now a happy and healthy two- year old!

Thank you, credit union partners for helping us help kids!
