This year marks the 9th year of the Help Our Kids Radiothon, one of Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children’s most heartwarming and exciting fundraising events! 

Forever Media (formerly Delmarva Broacasting) radio stations will once again broadcast live from the Anthony N. Fusco, Sr. Atrium over two days, sharing stories of hope, courage, and compassion from our patients, patient families, and clinicians. In 2018, the event raised over $320,000 bringing the total amount raised over the past 8 year to over $1.9 million.  This year, we hope that you will join us in supporting this amazing event!

Each year, we feature a special child to serve as our Patient Ambassador. Mateo  (pictured above) was a 12-year-old healthy and happy boy.  One day after a karate class, he complained about chest pain and was rushed to the ER at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. The next day it was confirmed that Mateo had Leukemia. He started chemotherapy treatment that same day, after further evaluation, Mateo was officially diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia - High Risk T- Cell.... keep reading. 

It is because of generous donations from Radiothon donors, that patients like Mateo receive world-class care and treatment at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.
