Holiday Sponsorship Update: Johnjay and Rich!


Throughout the month of December we have been collecting monetary donations for a very special family in the Phoenix area. Kolten is a 13 month old little boy with a rare heart defect that also effects his lungs. He has had several procedures including a 13 hour heart and lung surgery with a pediatric cardiology specialist at Stanford. The family just learned that Kolten will have to undergo another heart surgery in January in Stanford, and are preparing for another trip there and an extended stay in California for his recovery. They currently have over $10,000 in medical bills from Kolten’s first year of treatment and procedures, and are facing many more bills in the near future.

In trying to help this family through this tough time, Rachel wrote Johnjay Van Es and Rich Berra of 104.7 KISS FM of the Johnjay and Rich Care for Kids Foundation to ask for assistance, and they generously granted her Christmas Wish. Johnjay and Rich will be helping the family with hotel and food expenses while in Stanford, which helps to ease the additional financial burden they are facing with the second surgery.

Thank you Johnjay and Rich for helping us help this family!!! And THANK YOU to all of our wonderful clients and friends who donated money toward their bills, we raised over $1000.00 and they were able to pay off several of their accounts in full. 🙂
