Let the children tell you what it’s like to spend hours here for treatments. Hear from their own mouths how donations have made their time at American Family Children’s Hospital a little brighter. And let their parents tell you how your donation can help kids still be kids even as they face the adult-size challenges of serious illness or injury.

Take a moment from your busy day and consider these stories, these families, and how just a little bit from you and maybe your friends can provide hope.

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
  • Helped build 8 rooms in the new 8th Floor NICU / PICU Units
  • Provided dinners for thousands of moms, dads, and patient visitors

JJO will be on site at the hospital all three days of the Radiothon:

Wednesday from 3-5pm with Johnny
Thursday from 9-11am with Ozz
Friday from 12 – 2pm with Greg
