ROCHESTER, Minn. – Patients at Mayo Clinic had a little something extra to smile out.
Hy-Vee brought in more than 700 balloons to patients at the Mayo Clinic Children’s Center. This is the second year of Hy-Vee’s Balloon Brigade Initiative, where balloons are given to patients. It’s all made possible thanks to balloons donated by Hy-Vee customers. The campaign continues through Dec. 17.
One little boy named Grant received a bone marrow transplant nearly three years ago. His family said they are thankful for this generous gesture.
“It's just great to bring joy to kids when they come to the clinic,” Kathy Nielsen, Grant’s mom, said. “And there's times when it's hard to come, so it's just neat to have this experience for them.”
This is all made possible thanks to balloons donated by Hy-Vee customers. The campaign continues through Dec. 17.
