Last year’s AFCH Radiothon raised more than $613,300! Money raised from the event has been used to build eight rooms in the hospital’s new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. It’s also paid for 1,440 dinners, provided 350 gas cards to families traveling long distances for their child’s care, and funded financial support grants to help families cover their basic financial needs.

American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison, Wis. is a premier medical and surgical center. In fact, U.S. News and World report named AFCH one of the best children’s hospitals in six specialties. Since opening in 2007, it has played host to patients from 49 of the 50 states. The 61-bed facility (soon to be 87) is also not-for-profit.
