Damonick rings the bell!

A year ago, Damonick Kunz was diagnosed with a bone cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma. On April 4 he and his family, with a large gathering of donors, volunteers and staff, celebrated the end of his successful treatment at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital.

Damonick was the first of many children who will ring this big bell to mark important milestones in their recovery from serious illness or injury. The Milestone Bell is installed in the rose garden near Mary Bridge, and is surrounded by whimsical topiary animals, hundreds of flowers and a prehistoric-looking “dinosaur food” plant.

Read more about the volunteers and donors who sponsored the Milestone Bell.
