I participated today as a volunteer on the radiothon, from 9:00am to 12:00pm that took place at the patient entertainment center @ Children’s Hospital Boston.
Some of the radio hosts were there and its fun to put a face to the voice I sometimes hear on the radio. Some of them looked much younger than I expected and only one looked older than I expected.
I received around 30 calls of an average of 15 dlls once-a-month donations for a year. So that’s $5,400 total. Not bad!
I received 1 crank phone call of a lady saying that she knows about an anesthesiologist that punctured 5 children’s lungs in one day. I told her she should donate some money so that Children’s Hospital Boston could prevent that (knowing it’s false..). Then I told her that my son Andy has been in the OR 18 times and he’s received wonderful care. She hung up.
