The Care-a-thon has arrived!!
Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, Fox 40 and The Wolf 101.9 are partnering with the U.C. Davis Children’s Hospital to raise $100k for the Children’s Miracle Network, an organization that provides support services for the families of children suffering major injuries and illness.
Over the past three weeks, Emily and the Love family have served as Ambassadors for the Care-a-thon, raising over $7,000 for local Children’s Miracle Network programs!
From music therapy at the hospital to stuffed animals in the infusion room, the staff at the U.C. Davis Children’s Hospital has provided constant entertainment for Emily. They have also helped the Love family with insurance paperwork, arranging immunization appointments for the older Love children, and providing them with books and toys to help explain everything that little Emily is going through.
The Children’s Miracle Network has been a huge blessing for the Love family and now the Loves want to make that support possible for other families facing difficult times. With two days left in the Care-a-thon, you can still get involved by donating to Team One Love online or watching and listening as the Love’s share their story with the Sacramento Community.
Tonight (Thursday 4/12), the Loves will be featured on the Fox 40 ten o’clock news in an interview that details the discovery of Emily’s Leukemia and the challenges and blessings the family has faced since.
On Friday morning, Jason and Christina can be heard telling their story by tuning into radio station 101.9 The Wolf. There will be a number you can call to pledge your support for the Children’s Miracle Network and, if you are a business, you can match the amount raised by Team Love.
Another way you can support the Care-a-thon, and get a yummy treat while you’re at it, is by visiting The Big Spoon in Fair Oaks, CA on Friday the 13th. Mention the Children’s Miracle Network and 30% of your purchase will go to Team Love’s campaign.
So many people have helped make the Love’s journey bearable over the past two months. Help them pay forward that love and support to other families by supporting the Children’s Miracle Network today!
