Nemours A.I. duPont Hospital for Children is hosting it's 4th Annual Help Our Kids Radiothon to benefit the children who are in need of the very best care.
We were invited to share Lucy's story, our family's story, for the radiothon this year. We are honored to be able to tell others about our special girl and just how extraordinary her life is/was!
"We could never have lived the life we did with Lucy if it wasn't for this hospital. They helped us to give her the best longest life...they really did!"
For the next two days, Spetember 3rd and 4th, the hospital is broadcasting live from the cafeteria on seven different radio stations in the Delmarva region. Our family's story was pre-recorded(for obvious emotional reasons :), and put to music by one of the very talent DJ's involved with the radiothon. He referred to the piece that he put together for Lucy, as "the story". I'm not so sure about that, there are many amazing stories being told. I do know that what he created from our interview is powerful, beautiful, and honors the hospital, Lucy, and her extraordinary life.
We would be honored if "For the Love of Lucy" you considered making a donation to a place that we affectionately refer to as "our home away from home".
You can make an online donation by clicking here.
You can also call 1 855 NEMOURS(636-6877).
Jack, Megan, and Sophie will be volunteering tomorrow afternoon (September 4th after school until 6pm) answering phones for those who call in and make a donation. Drew and I will be there too, talking with the various radio stations, sharing about Lucy's life and our experiences at AI. I know the kids will be thrilled if you called and asked to speak to one of them to give a donation to the hospital in honor of Lucy. It will make their day!
We are honored to be a part of the Radiothon, and to be able to give back to a place that has given our family so much!
