The COVID-19 pandemic has caused schools, families and friends to come up with creative ways to celebrate their high school graduates. The C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital family joined in on those celebrations by creating a video to recognize over 30 patients, now high school graduates, who received care at Mott over the years.

These patients, or Mott’s “Little Victors,” have undergone more than most students could ever imagine: from cancer treatments and open-heart surgeries, to autoimmune diseases and epilepsy diagnoses, and more. Medical staff experienced firsthand the strength and resilience of these Victors through their journey. No matter how or why they came to Mott for care, their physicians, nurses and medical staff celebrate them during this major milestone, and always.
