This brings home the reason we do the Mix 96/Kiss For Kids Radiothon every year. The U of I Stead Family Children's Hospital's very first patient was from the Quad Cities: Will Kohn. He has been waiting for a new heart for quite some time.
But today's the day!!
The story is explained below via social media posts/pages from the family and their friends and supporters.
The Children's Miracle Network depends on support from the community to be able to provide the family-centered care that backs up the philosophy that "Happy Kids Heal Faster".
