American Family Children’s Hospital Radiothon

The 18th annual American Family Children’s Hospital Radiothon benefitting the UW Health Kids is October 18, 19 and 20th!

During the three-day Radiothon, sponsored by Settlers best Credit Union, patients treated at the children’s hospital and their families will tell stories of survival and courage. Learn about kids you may know who have waged courageous battles against cancer, birth defects, kidney disease, trauma injuries, and other hurdles.

Tune in each day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The money you donate will help save lives!

Here are just some of the ways donations have been used in past years:

· Funded a Child Life Specialist position in the Emergency Department to help patients and their families cope with fear, pain, and anxiety.

· Provided supplies for the Positive Image Center which offers wigs, hats, and salon services to patients free of charge.

· Provided gas cards and transportation resources for families who need help getting to and from the hospital, including those who need treatments several times each week.

· Supported Tyler’s Place sibling care, so parents can stay with their hospitalized child while the siblings are taken care of in a nurturing and therapeutic environment.

· Provided dinners for thousands of moms, dads, and patient visitors.
