PHOENIX — This week, the 14th annual Phoenix Children’s Give-A-Thon, presented by Valley Hyundai Dealers and the Ak-Chin Indian Community, takes place on KTAR News 92.3 FM and 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.

The event will air at various times on all shows throughout the week. On KTAR News 92.3 FM, it will air daily between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. and between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on 98.7 Arizona’s Sports Station.

Donations will go toward cutting-edge research, clinical programs, state-or-the-art equipment and family-friendly services that ensure the hospital can provide world-class care to each and every child that needs it.

Here are the stories of five kids from this year’s Phoenix Children’s Give-A-Thon who are living examples of the quality care provided at the hospital:


Gia

Despite enduring multiple seizures daily for almost two years, Gia was a happy little girl. The staff at Phoenix Children’s helped her parents make Gia’s life as comfortable as possible before her passing. Her parents have the best memories of Gia and consider themselves close to some specialists at the hospital.


Amanda

After young Amanda was hit by a car, she turned to Phoenix Children’s for her injuries. Amanda suffered a fractured pelvis, laceration in her liver and a brain injury. She survived and is now breathing and walking again on her own.


Colton

Colton was heading home from the lake when his back tire blew and the car rolled 10 times. On the third roll, Colton was ejected through the front windshield head first. Doctors said he shouldn’t have survived the crash, but he did.


Laila

Laila was born after just 24 weeks of pregnancy. Her parents didn’t think she was going to survive and she was on life support. Phoenix Children’s helped Laila go home with her parents after about four months and she’s still undergoing treatment at the hospital.


Katie

When Katie’s family took her to Phoenix Children’s, doctors informed them of a tumor that was spreading into her lungs. Her parents spent her last few weeks with her at home and are indebted to everyone at the hospital for their help.
