Donor Story - Kevin VanDam Foundation

The VanDam family has a special connection to the hospital, as Kevin and Sherry VanDam’s twin sons, Nicholas and Jackson, spent three months in Bronson’s NICU. Like many families, when the VanDam’s couldn’t be at their sons’ bedsides, they would call in to NICU staff to check on them.

In 2016, the Kevin VanDam Foundation presented the Bronson Health Foundation with a $15,000 donation to support the NicView video camera system in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Kevin, who is a professional bass fisherman, shared that "This [technology] will allow the whole family to watch the care, growth, and procedures that take place while still providing the best environment for the baby to thrive. The people that work in these units all over are a very special group and perform miracles every day. After our own experience, Sherry and I hope this improvement will help other families during their time of need."
