Hudson's Room Makeover

Hudson and his siblings now have a place to play and enjoy time together as a family


Hudson is the youngest of 3 children,  following his sister Olivia (8) and brother Gavin (10). He was born a  happy healthy baby. Around 4 months of age, Hudson’s parents started  noticing some differences in him, such as weight loss, difficulty  nursing, and choking. After a few significant episodes Hudson was  hospitalized around 6 months of age for further investigation. After a  16 day stay in the hospital and lots of testing Hudson was sent home  with no answers and told to follow up with genetics. At the young age of  9 months old, on July 2nd, 2018, Hudson’s mom Nichole received the  phone call that would forever alter the life their family had once  dreamed of. Hudson was diagnosed with a rare, incurable, terminal,  genetic disease, Gauchers Disease 2. They were told to put Hudson on  hospice, that he would have no quality of life, never walk, talk, or  live past the age of 2. Nichole’s response to them….. “but God”.

Hudson  is now an amazing 5 year old who is living his BEST life! His family  has and will continue to go to the ends of the earth for Hudson and his  siblings. For the past 4 years they have made the drive to D.C. every 3  to 6 months for Hudson’s geneticist who is the only one in the US  willing to give him a chance at life! In fact, Hudson is now being  followed by geneticists all over the world as he is re-writing the books  and making a way for all the children to come.

Hudson is a very social kid, who  thinks his siblings have hung the moon. He loves sports (football,  basketball, and baseball), movies (Toy Story is his favorite), and has a  smile that lights up his family’s world! He’s also known to give the  BEST hugs. You’ve never had a hug ‘till you’ve had a Huddy hug!

Unfortunately, Hudson is very  susceptible to viruses that have kept him in the hospital ICU for more  than half of his life. Because of this, they have had to keep Hudson  confined within the walls of their home, limiting his exposure to the  outside world. Sunshine on a Ranney Day is honored to bring light and  joy into the walls that surround Hudson to help him continue living his  BEST life!
