Dairy Queen partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
Dairy Queen is once again teaming up with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to raise money for Hurley's children and families during this special spring event. Donations will be accepted at participating DQ stores for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which purchases critically needed medical equipment and Child Life resources for the pediatric programs at Hurley Children's Hospital in Flint.
Collin Allen: Miracle Baby who survived two surgeries
Renee Allen from Holly and her miracle son, Collin, will be at the Burton Dairy Queen (4145 S. Saginaw St.) from 11am-Noon. Collin (who will turn three years old on March 22) weighed just two pounds, 10 ounces when he was born 13 weeks early. Because he was born with a perforated bowel and related complications, Collin underwent two life-saving surgeries at Hurley. He spent 16 weeks in the NICU. Today, he is a healthy, active little boy.
Kaidyn Lewis: Miracle Baby who started life at 1 lb., 5 ounces
17-month-old Kaidyn Lewis will be at the Burton Dairy Queen (4145 S. Saginaw St.) from Noon–1pm. Kaidyn was born at 1 pound, 5 ounces, and is called a “miracle." The Flint baby was a patient in Hurley’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for two months but has no current limitations from his premature birth.
Marrah Serban: Miracle Teenager determined to beat her cancer
13-year-old Marrah Serban from Flushing was diagnosed on November 8, 2010 with leukemia. She was told that her treatment at Hurley would last 27 months. This Flushing Middle School student is tackling her disease head-on. Even thought the chemotherapy takes its toll on her, Marrah stays focused on her long-term goal of beating her cancer. Marrah will be at the Burton Dairy Queen (4145 S. Saginaw St.) from 1pm-2pm.
