Well, dang it. All those hours and heart-wrenching stories for the past two days on Children’s Medical Center’s Radiothon made an impression and fueled future life-saving stories. And you came through big time!
Children’s Medical Center Foundation bean counters put their abacuses together with CBS’s KLUV, KRLD and La Grande accountants and reported that a whopping $1,262,704 was netted.
Chances are that KLUV’s Jody Dean doesn’t know. He’s probably in sleep mode after spending countless hours on air interviewing munchkins and parents like Lacey Parker and her mom, Renee Parker, on their OMG relationship with Dallas’ pediatric Trauma One facility.
If you don’t know the importance of this healthcare oasis for kiddos, you’ve probably never held your breath, said a prayer and watched your child struggle for good health.
And while some may regret the cancellation of the Children’s Health Holiday Parade, the patients at Children’s Medical Center are more than grateful for the support of all who supported 2016 Radiothon.
Give yourselves a pat on the back.
