Last year while I was on the air during our Radiothon, news broke of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. I had to do two things: break that news to our listener family and decide if we were going to continue broadcasting from the hospital.
I had never openly wept on the air. I did that day. I knew in my heart that, God forbid, a tragedy like that strike West Michigan, those kids would have come to Helen DeVos Children's Hospital We continued.
Below is the story of a family from Sandy Hook. They allowed laughter, love, growth and hope back into their home even after they lost a precious baby girl. If their story moves you, I ask that you call 877-953-5437 or click http://bit/ly/DonateToHDVCHNow and give.
- My first job was as a "Soda Jerk" at Cone Corners in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. (Cheesy, huh?)
- Every spring, I participate in the World's Largest Trivia Contest in my hometown of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Out of about 500 teams and 10-12,000 players, we usually finish in the top 100!!! It's 54 straight hours of useless information and I love it. See? I'm not wired right. Just for the record, my team placed 73rd this year. :)
- I am a proud doggie mommy of "Spooner." She's a rescue who was an abused puppy mill mom. I am amazed at the FANTASTIC rescues and shelters we have in West Michigan. If you think you want to add to your family, the joy of a shelter pet in unparalleled!
