Hudson’s body may have failed him, but his spirit never did. Since losing him, our family has made it a priority to spread love and kindness in his memory. Each year on his birthday, February 13, we spread “Happy for Hudson”. You never know how a simple act of kindness can change someone’s life. We believe the human heart can handle anything with the right support, and his legacy will continue to live on through us.

Hudson’s Story

In 2011, we were newlyweds in the throes of promising careers and busy social lives—and expecting our first child. The pregnancy was normal until the 32nd week, when one night I woke up with a terrible stomach ache that, at first, we shrugged off as food poisoning.

Make-A-Wish Story

Make-A-Wish Mid-South contacted me about granting Hudson a Wish shortly after his doctors recommended moving him to hospice care.
