Help Our Kids Radiothon

Our Radiothon Was an Incredible Success - Thank You

Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children hit the airwaves Sept. 10–11, with our third annual Help Our Kids Radiothon, presented by The Nemours Fund for Children’s Health and sponsored by Delmarva Broadcasting.

More than 50 families shared their stories with local radio stations during the event, which raised $203,010 to help us provide the very best care for children.

Special thanks to the radio stations, the generous support of the community and our sponsors for helping make the Radiothon possible.

If you missed our Radiothon, you can still call 1-855-NEMOURS and make a difference with your donation.

Helping Children like Aydia

Aydia was born with a form of spina bifida. She had a "tethered" spinal cord that required immediate surgery. Her parents were told that she might never be able to walk, but with therapy, she did just that at age 2.

When Aydia was 8 years old, she kept getting sick and wasn't growing properly. Her parents took her to duPont Hospital for Children where she had to have a feeding tube and additional surgery. Aydia's conditions began to improve, and she gained 15 pounds and grew two inches taller. Now, a year later, she plays several sports and takes dance classes.

Although Aydia was still in the hospital during last year's Help Our Kids Radiothon, she captured the hearts of listeners everywhere with her story. Today, Aydia is a vibrant and active young girl who shows no evidence that she was ever sick.
