Children’s Miracle Network Champion reaches personal goal during Radiothon

January 15, 2020

A Major Milestone

Our 2019 Children’s Miracle Network Champion reached a major milestone during the 2019 Cares for Kids Radiothon at the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital.

Because our champion, David Powell, is speech impaired, his mom has always shared the story of how MUSC saved David’s life. At the 2018 Cares for Kids Radiothon, David set a goal to tell the story himself by the following year. After practicing with a speech therapist and his mom all year, he did it! While his mom held cue cards, David read his story live on the radio during the 2019 Radiothon.
