Local Care for Sick Kids 

The folks at Kiss 94.5 got talking about the Children’s Miracle Network on Thursday – it’s their annual Radiothon, live from the Bangor Mall.One hundred percent of the money they raise in this three-day event goes toward medical equipment and therapy for local children.And the need is great. Nearly 150-thousand children received services last year. All the money stays here in eastern Maine, helping the EMHS network of hospitals provide kids with the life-saving care they need.”Without that network,” says Healthcare Charities President Michael Crowley, “young families would have to go to Boston, or well outside their hometown network, in order to receive certain treatments and certain care.””It’s really simple,” says Mandy Exly of Kiss 94.5. “Thirty cents a day and you can help save the life of kids right here in Maine.”The Radiothon runs from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at the Bangor Mall’s center court.If you’d like to donate, you can call 1-888-499-5437.
