The 7th Annual Help Our Kids Radiothon

On September 6 and 7, 2017, the Help Our Kids Radiothon was held at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Six Delmarva Broadcasting Company radio stations broadcast live from the hospital’s Anthony N Fusco, Sr. Atrium sharing with their listeners stories of hope, courage, and compassion from our patients, patient families, and clinicians. As the clock hit 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, the total amount raised was announced: $345,982. This makes the 7 year total more than $1.6 million. Donations came steadily throughout the two-day event via a phone bank and online giving. There were also those who donated in person, inspired by what they heard on their favorite radio station. 

This year's Patient Ambassador is Parker Diskin (pictured above) is doing well - - running and jumping and playing on the monkey bars again. Her parents are so grateful for the care she received.

It is because of donations to events like the 2017 Radiothon that children like Parker get the treatment they need!  Thank you for making this year's Radiothon a great success!
