Thanks to our friends at 13 WHAM, here are two of the Miracle Kids.
Meet Lauren Gumtow....
Here's Miracle Kid Arianna Stewart
And there are thousands of stories to tell....of hope and love, courage and strength. It really is my favorite two days of radio every year. Not just because of the special families and children we meet....but because this my son has been saved by the heroes that work at Golisano Children's Hospital.
My son Jack has a stroke when he was just 36 hours old. We didn't know anything was wrong until he had a seizure in the nursery. It was touch and go for the first week. Endless days and nights in the NICU. Hooked up to all kinds of machines. As new parents you just never think it could happen to you....to your child. You are ready to take your baby home....instead it's learning new medical terms, meeting with neurosurgeons, nurses, and social workers.
We've been in the ER....watching as doctors worked frantically to keep him alive after more seizures. His lifeless body on the stretcher. My wife and I standing there in disbalief at what we were witnessing. But because of where we were, we never lost faith. We never lost hope that they could help our boy.
My buddy is 15 now.....and has gotten thru more medical procedures, tests, prescriptions, CT scans, trips to the ER than I care to count. But because of the nurses and staff and doctors at Golisano's....he's here with us today.
We've been at the hospital, during one his lengthy stays....and played with toys that have purchased with money from this Radiothon. We've used the specially designed wagons to get from the hospital bed to an appointment in the hospital that have been purchased because of this community's generosity.
I think that's why I love this Radiothon so much. Because my son has been a direct recipient of YOUR help. It's because of the staff and dedicated doctors.
Become a MIRACLE MAKER. Not for Jack....or the over 70,000 kids that will be helped this year. But for your child. Your nephew. Your family. Because you just never know.
