Miracle Dad Thanks Corner Store

In a message to Corner Store employees, Miracle Dad Bo introduces his daughter, Ryleigh, and thanks them for giving her a chance at life. Born 16 weeks premature and weighing only 1 pound, 11 ounces, Ryleigh spent 88 days in the neonatal intensive care unit at her CMN Hospital. Local donations, like those collected during Corner Store’s campaign, funded research and technology that helped her survive a bacterial infection and surgery to repair a heart condition.

Now an energetic and imaginative 8-year-old, Ryleigh is doing well. Her mom describes her best as “just pure sunshine.”

From April 1 – April 30, Corner Store customers will be able to purchase a $1 or $5 Miracle Balloon, buy a glow bracelet or donate change to support sick and injured kids treated at the local CMN Hospital. Since becoming a CMN Hospitals partner in 1995, Corner Store has raised more than $23 million to help kids like Ryleigh. To identify the Corner Store nearest you, visit
