#FLATCALVIN Adventures

You may see #FLATCALVIN starting to popup in your news feeds. That’s because 5 year old, Calvin is the 2020 Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital (HDVCH) Children’s Miracle Network (CMN)  local champion. Calvin wants to share his story with you and have you take him along on your daily adventures.

Hi, my name is Calvin! I’m 5 and half years old and live in Wyoming, MI. Some of my favorite things are animals, catching bugs and running really fast …. like faster than Sonic.

I visit Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital every few months for Ebstein’s Anomaly – my heart is broken and needs to be fixed like Iron Man. This means, I have a rare heart defect that makes my heart work much harder than it should and has caused it to grow almost twice as large as it should.

What I like best about Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital is meeting all of my new friends and going to dance parties.

Thank you for raising money to help kids like me! Because of people like you, I can grow up to be a doctor to fix kids and grownups.
