Listen to me on the radio tomorrow...
Tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. I will take part in a Radiothon at the Mini's hospital to help raise money for a very important hospital program. As most of you know, this time last year Mini was preparing to enter the hospital for a bone marrow transplant that has changed her life. (tonight Mini is on the cheerleading squad at her high school, cheering on the basketball team)...I say all this to say, miracles are happening at this hospital everyday...participating in tomorrows event is the least I can do to give back to this wonderful hospital. This year Mini and I will celebrate our blessings with a big ole' fashion, Christmas Open House for all our friends and family who prayed and wished us well...
Format: Throughout the 26 hours of live programming over two days, the on-air talent will be conducting live interviews with patients and their family members, hospital staff members, doctors and nurses. They will also be playing pre-recorded “Miracle Stories/Moments” that will be produced to tell heartening stories of the children who were and are being treated at CCMC.

Goal: The goal of the Radiothon is to raise funds to support the Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Programs at the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York (CCMC). Child Life Specialists are the life blood of the hospital and help children, their parents and their siblings cope with the anxieties that come with being a patient in the hospital. Child Life Specialists are trained in a variety of disciplines and offer different types of therapies for children and their siblings, including play therapy, music therapy, art therapy, pet therapy and horticultural therapy. Child Life also maintains an active calendar of programming for children to participate in either live or remotely through a closed circuit television service in every patient room. The Child Life Program touches tens of thousands of lives each year at CCMC and is 100% dependent on philanthropy for its sustenance and growth as there are no sources of reimbursement for this critical service.
