Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon was one of the things I was most scared of doing when I took the job on the morning show on Hot 104.7.

I'm not very good at serious. I usually make jokes when things get too sentimental. I don't know what to do when people cry. And even though I'll cry at almost every Hallmark commercial, I don't like crying in public.

I had previously worked the front desk at the station so I was familiar with Radiothon from the listeners perspective, but being a part of it on the other end is totally different!

Radiothon has become one of my favorite parts of my job! We get to meet these amazing kids and their families. Sometimes, the stories are sad, but the strength and perseverance you see in the families is really inspiring. The way these families take what is happening to them and their family and use it as fuel to make a difference is amazing! The vibe at the castle is always positive and uplifting!

I think a lot of people want to feel like they're making a difference, whether it be at their job or just in life and being part of Radiothon really does make me feel like I'm doing something important.

And on a little bit lighter note, I heckled a Harlem Globetrotter and got to hug a Coke machine. Two things I wouldn't have gotten to do without Radiothon!


Thanks to everybody that listened and donated and are helping to fight cancer so these kids don't have to!
