The story of Corinne Bass is just one example of why we love Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital and are overjoyed to be able to donate all proceeds from Lake Michigan RTS to their programs. Corinne received care from both Child Life and P.O.R.T., two programs that Lake Michigan RTS supports.
As an eighteen year old with aplastic anemia, Corinne was in the hospital during her senior prom, but the employees who worked with her didn’t want her to miss out on this milestone. They brought prom to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital just for her. Her nurses, teachers and doctors all attended and danced the night away. The staff worked to give Corinne the best possible prom experience with private shopping, her very own chauffeur, music and a theme of her choice: the roaring 20’s. She said it was better than she expected. Watch the video highlights from Corinne’s prom below!
