A half million dollars is an incredible achievement for Rochester! You helped us raise over $327,000 during our just completed 2 day Drive for Miracles Radiothon!
That adds to last years tally when you generously gave us over $212,000, totaling over a cool half mil brought in over about 4 days total for kids like my buddy Alex above. Alex has degenitive hip problems and has spent 4 of the last 6 months at Golisano Childrens Hospital. His wonderful, patient mom Tammy told me Alex spent the last 3 weeks being taken care of by the incredible staff at GCH. That's 3 straight weeks of a mother sleeping in the hospital by her scared childs side.
During our live Radiothon Alex and Tammy got the terrific news that Alex was finally going home. After 3 l-o-n-g weeks Tammy finally can get a good night sleep at home. She, like 74,000 other moms spent countless hours over the last year by their sick kids bedside praying for a miracle. Tammy and Alex's arrived Friday, just in time to share the wonderful joyous news with us as we tallied up our $327,000 you helped us raise. Kids like Alex will benefit from your generosity. On his behalf (and for all the other kids and their families) I say THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
