Join us for the 10th Annual Results Radio Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon!

On March 2nd and 3rd, we’ll be live from the Castle of Care sharing stories of hope and healing during the 10th Annual Results Radio Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon presented by Jerry’s Auto Sales. You’ll hear of kids from Brookings, Vermillion, Sioux Falls, and surrounding communities–kids we consider to be heroes. Kids who have already fought a battle harder than many adults ever will. A battle against cancer.

From 6 AM-6 PM on Thursday and Friday, tune in to HOT 104.7, KIKN 100.5, MIX 97.3 and B 102.7 to meet local heroes, like Aria.

Aria is 4 years old, loves to dance, is fascinated with birds and, before cancer changed her life, was so proud of her long, curly blond hair.

Aria’s mom, Lacey, once thought it was a chore to comb through her golden locks. But a month into Aria’s chemo treatments for cancer, the tedious detangling became a reality check.

One night, after her daily bath, lotion and jammies, Lacey started to gently brush Aria’s hair right into her hands. Hair strands caked the tub, layered the floor and stuck to Aria’s body.

“That’s when it hit me,” Lacey remembers. “As this hair kept streaming out of her head, getting all over her and me and coming out in piles, you could see her scalp clearly on top. The lump in my throat formed … this cancer is REAL and I lost it.

For Aria, her future looks bright. Her cancer – acute lymphoblastic leukemia – has a high survival rate, plus, she has an amazing support system. Once Aria’s hair started to fall out, her family shaved all of their heads together!

“I wanted to let Aria see that she’s not alone,” Lacey said. “Nothing she does in this is alone and I make sure of that.”

Tune into the Results Radio Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon to hear more of Aria’s story and the stories of other local heroes on March 2-3, 2017.
