The Annual Nurses Ball on General Hospital was founded by Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring). This event has been a tradition in Port Charles since 1994. It’s founder, Lucy Coe, wanted to bring awareness to a heavy subject in which at the time was a large focal point for this iconic Daytime Drama and the residents of Port Charles.
The Nurses Ball is held close to Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) heart considering the event was formed around the heartbreaking story of Stone Cates (Michael Sutton) and his battle with HIV/Aids. Sonny took Stone in and cared for him as if he was his own son, guiding him through life and through love. Stone was romantically involved with a very good friend of Sonny’s, Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough). The two had one of the most memorable love stories in Daytime Television, and to this day, their story lives on.
Sonny and his family friend, Brook Lynn Ashton Quartermaine (Amanda Setton) recently ran to Mike’s (Max Gail) side after Sonny received a phone call from Turning Woods. Things are looking grim after Mike suffered a seizure and his doctor didn’t sound too hopeful in his delivery to inform Sonny and Brook Lynn the severity of Mike’s condition. Brook Lynn has been a bright spot in Mike’s life since her return to Port Charles a few months ago. She has also been very supportive for Sonny. Brook Lynn tried to lift Mike’s spirits with encouraging words about doing a duet and closing out The Nurses Ball.
General Hospital spoilers suggest that Mike may not make it to see this year’s Nurses Ball, let alone be able to perform. Sonny’s focus is divided as he worries about the well being of his grandson Wiley, and focusing on taking down Port Charles’ latest threat, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober). Although Brook Lynn seems to be remaining positive and hopeful, the reality of Mike’s health is that it is on a rapid decline, and he may not make it for another year of The Nurses Ball.
General Hospital’s annual event is set to take place some time in May. However, due to the current situation regarding the Covid-19 Pandemic, the exact date may be shifted after having to cut back on episodes with flashbacks and Friday repeats.
