"Our first experience with Helen DeVos Children's Hospital was in 2001, when our eldest daughter, Erin, then 3 months old, started experiencing seizures. She was admitted to the Pediatric Critical Care Unit and underwent a series of diagnostic tests. She was diagnosed with a series of rare neurologic anomalies, as well as a still-undetermined metabolic disorder. Since then, Erin has been admitted to the hospital on dozens of occasions, some lasting days, others extending to weeks or months. Erin is followed regularly by 10 different Helen DeVos Children's Hospital pediatric specialists. We feel very fortunate that Erin's complex care can be managed right here in West Michigan.
"Since joining the FCCAC in 2001 after attending an informational meeting, I have served as chair and vice-chair. I currently serve on several sub-committees. I also volunteer on the Project DOCC team. Participating in these groups is a way to 'give back' to the hospital and community for the wonderful and professional care Erin and our family have received over the years. Being part of FCCAC has helped create a voice for all the families that visit Helen DeVos Children's Hospital."
