ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The annual radiothon, put on by 100.3 The Peak, is helping families that are receiving care at UNM Children's Hospital.
Becky and Josh Hansen's family are an example of how the donations are being used.
Their son Liam is battling leukemia.
"We're talking about his smile and his spirit through all of it," Becky said. "I think that helps us get through it."
Liam is in Colorado receiving treatment, but his family cannot be by his side due to COVID-19 precautions.
The radiothon helps the hospital provide support for the Hansens, and other families, get through tough times.
COIVD has made providing that support a little more complicated, and expensive.
The Hansens are grateful for the attention and support they've received from UNM Children's Hospital, and they're hopeful Liam will be better soon.
"We're getting closer and closer," Becky said. "I think it will be completely overwhelming when we're home together."
