CURE and WAY-FM Partner Together to Provide Surgery for Kids in Need
From June 14th to June 18th, CURE and WAY-FM—a family of listener-supported radio stations—partnered together to hold a radio fundraiser where WAY-FM’s DJs helped spread CURE’s mission of healing the sick and proclaiming the kingdom of God to millions of listeners across the United States.
The DJ’s invitation to transform kids’ lives through surgery was accepted by compassionate listeners who responded with tremendous generosity. They now join a big family of Heroes – just over 7400 people – committed to bring healing to kids every month. The collective generosity of this group’s impact means that 235 kids receive surgery every month in CURE Children’s Hospitals across the world. Heroes provide renewed hope for kids who will now receive the surgery they need to restore their bodies. During their stay at a CURE Children’s Hospital, CUREkids will also hear about how much God loves them, how valued they are, and experience the love of Christ through compassionate care.
CURE’s own Brant Hansen, along with his friend, co-host, and radio producer Sherri Lynn championed the healing of kids during the week long campaign. The mission of CURE is one that Brant is excited about. He has visited CURE Children’s hospitals and uses his influence to help raise funds for CUREkids. “I’m not just excited for the kids who will be healed, and their families. I’m excited for the people who are now CURE donors. They get to be part of one of the most profoundly beautiful missions imaginable,” says Brant.
A handful of the DJs at WAY-FM have also visited CURE Children’s Hospitals and have seen first hand the impact a surgery can have on the life of a child and their family. Wally from WAY-FM’s the Wally show shared his experience at a past visit to CURE Niger, “CURE is bringing new life to children, particularly children who could easily be cast off because of their correctable disabilities. With your help, CURE not only changes lives but saves lives, and they do it all in the name of Jesus.”
