Listeners can access the radiothon at 92.3 or online at www.sunny923.com and will hear first-hand from the many families who have benefited from the center’s treatment and care. The radiothon will feature interviews with oncology patients and families who are currently undergoing treatment at the hospital, those who have undergone treatment in the past, as well as interviews with the medical staff who care for these children every day.

The oncology program at Children’s Hospital, the only facility in the region specifically trained to provide cancer care to children and young adults, is part of a national network of children’s hospitals called Children’s Oncology Group.  This group meets regularly to share information on childhood cancer and standardize protocols.
