KASH for Kids Annual Radiothon Broadcasts Live for Three Days to Support Children's Hospital
Special guest Trista Stockwell talks about her family's experience at Providence
Anchorage, AK - Beginning Wednesday, Feb. 17, KASH Country 107.5 will broadcast the annual KASH for Kids radiothon live for three days from the Dimond Center. The radiothon will feature stories about Alaska's children and families treated at The Children's Hospital at Providence.
On-air host Jimmy and guest DJ Trista Stockwell will highlight the doctors, nurses and staff who care for Alaska's children every day. Trista experienced the compassionate care offered at Providence after her son, Shawn, was diagnosed with hypoplastic left-heart syndrome as an infant in Providence's Newborn Intensive Care Unit. Shawn, now 11 years old, received a heart transplant out of state and continues to receive follow-up care at Providence.
"It is an honor to be co-hosting KASH for Kids," said Trista. "My family has been involved with this event for many years, and we are so grateful to The Children's Hospital at Providence for the exceptional care we've received. Because Providence offers such a high level of care for Alaska's children, Shawn can stay here at home for his post-transplant care."
KASH for Kids radiothon will connect our community to the hearts and lives of children's hospital families and raise money to support Children's Miracle Network in Alaska.
Community support from this annual event will help ensure that our kids will receive the best care possible right here in Alaska. One hundred percent of donations made to Children's Miracle Network during the KASH for Kids radiothon will go to care for Alaska's kids and support the unique services provided at The Children's Hospital at Providence.
