Celebrating 15 Years Fueling the Care

It’s #MiracleMakerMonday here at EMHS Foundation, and today we’d like to give a shout out to our friends from Irving Oil.

For the past 15 years, through its Fuel the Care program, Irving Oil has been helping families with children who need urgent medical care or who need to travel throughout Maine or beyond for healthcare, kiddos like Ryan, who have spent time at Eastern Maine Medical Center, as well as hospitals in Portland and Boston.

When Ryan was born, he weighed in at a healthy weight, but he was critically ill. After a scary start and four weeks in the NICU, Ryan was discharged home. And, shortly thereafter, his mom learned that her little guy had a rare genetic disorder. His care team is in Bangor, Portland, and Boston, and his family travelled more than 7,000 miles during his first seven years for doctor’s appointments and surgeries. Irving Oil’s Fuel the Care program allows Ry to receive the medical help he needs without his family having to worry about the added cost of gas.

Thank you, Irving!
