Our Partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®

Every associate is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of customers and the communities in which we serve. To that end, within the convenience store industry we are the largest contributor to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, wherein the donations raised in stores stay local to support the children’s hospital in that area. This gives associates the opportunity to connect with their neighborhood and illustrate that a little change can make a big difference.

Since 1991 and thanks to the overwhelming generosity of customers, suppliers, vendors, business partners, Franchise Owners and employees, 7-Eleven, Inc. has contributed nearly $190 million to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals®.

Next time you visit a 7-Eleven®, Speedway® or Stripes® store, we invite you to donate to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® at the register.

2024 Champion Children

Maelle
Age 14
Maelle
Age 14

Treated at Children's Hospital Colorado in Aurora, CO.

At age 4, Maelle began to complain that her head hurt and her eyes started crossing. Doctors discovered a three-centimeter mass in her brain and immediately sent the family to Children’s Hospital Colorado where Maelle had a biopsy.

Doctors at Children’s Hospital Colorado diagnosed Maelle with a non-cancerous pilocytic astrocytoma. Due to the tumors’ precarious location, it was deemed inoperable. After careful consideration, Maelle’s family and care team decided to shrink the tumor with chemotherapy. After seven months of chemotherapy, the tumor had shrunk significantly, and they were able to cease treatment and return to normal life.

For two years, Maelle enjoyed life outside of the hospital and became an avid volleyball player. But unfortunately, during a routine check-up, doctors discovered that Maelle’s tumor had started growing again. In January of 2021, Maelle began a new experimental treatment to help reduce the growth of the tumor. Maelle continued to remain in the best of spirits and came off the treatment in February of 2023.

Whilst the treatment saw limited success, she has been off all medication since. Maelle continues to visit Children’s Hospital Colorado to monitor the tumors’ progress and is excited to start high school next year! The family has hope in the groundbreaking research being conducted at Children’s Hospital Colorado to find new treatments and therapies for kids like Maelle.

“Words can’t describe what Children’s Colorado means to us,” says her mom, Kristen. “A hospital isn’t a place where most people would choose to be. And yet, I always feel at ease here, knowing that our daughter is getting the best care available. They are nothing short of amazing.”

Thanks to donations to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Maelle benefits from groundbreaking research being conducted by her local member hospital.

Drew
Age 9
Drew
Age 9

Treated at CHRISTUS Children’s in San Antonio, TX.

Drew was a happy, healthy two-year-old who had never been ill. He never even had an earache before he was diagnosed with pneumonia and admitted into the H-E-B Emergency Department at CHRISTUS Children’s after a very high fever. When pneumonia didn’t improve, he was transferred to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and underwent surgery to clear out his lungs, followed by a blood transfusion the next day. Drew’s vitals dropped extremely low, causing him to go into cardiac arrest. After his second surgery, he was able come off the ventilator, but then his anaphylactic allergic reaction to antibiotics caused another setback. His mother says “the PICU team will always have a special place in our hearts. They gave us the greatest gift: Drew’s life.” Today, Drew has fully recovered. He is a fun-loving, sweet nine-year-old that loves Marvel and LEGOS. He stays busy on the weekends playing football, baseball, and basketball.

Thanks to the support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Drew benefited from a brand new PICU ventilator to support his complex care and Child Life services for his family.

Belle
Age 12
Belle
Age 12

Treated at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA.

Isabelle (Belle) was adopted from China when she was 19 months old. Her parents knew she had a potentially devastating blood disorder called thalassemia, but they were comforted that a top ten children’s hospital would be waiting for them when they got home. Doctors at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh began treatment right away. Since she had beta thalassemia major, the most severe form of thalassemia, Belle had a mediport placed and began a routine of ongoing blood transfusions. To mitigate the risk of an iron overload, which could affect her liver and heart, she takes two medications every morning and every evening. Today, Belle is a happy 12-year-old who loves her hospital days because she gets to bring her two favorite stuffed animals, play Uno, and do arts and crafts with her favorite Child Life specialists. She loves having sushi for lunch in the hospital cafeteria. Belle is a cheerleader and a runner. She has joined band and choir at school.

On the days Belle returns to the hospital, the services provided through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals help her spend time creatively.
