CMN Radiothon

 E with Kelli and Mudflap
 E and Grace, another miracle child

Big brother, Landon got to go too

While we were in the hospital, getting E's diagnosis, the staff asked us to be a miracle family. Of course we said, yes. They have 6 miracle children this year. Every child was a patient at UMC for a different reason. They have a radiothon, with the local station, KLLL and a telethon on KCBD to raise money for the hospital. The Radiothon was last weekend. Brien and I went in a few weeks earlier to record our stories. They did a monolog of us with music in the background. And we did a live interview on the morning show. E had a great time. She loved meeting all the DJ's and radio staff. They treated her like a princess. Everyone tried to get her to say something on air, but she refused.We asked all of our family and friends to donate in her honor. All the stories played periodically over the weekend. They all brought me to tears. It's so heartbreaking to hear these parents talk about the struggles and battles their kid goes through everyday. It was fun to be a part of something so wonderful. It felt good to be able to help the hospital raise so much money. Over $161,000 was raised. That's awesome.
