Last week, our community came together to celebrate our own Memorial Day tradition — the Dave & Carole Miracle Marathon on 96.5 WKLH. Our lobby buzzed with activity as Dave Luczak and Carole Caine broadcasted live from our hospital. They have been instrumental in making Miracle Marathon one of the most successful radiothons in the nation, and words cannot describe our gratitude to them and the entire WKLH team.
In just 36 hours, this year’s event raised $1.42 million, which is truly amazing. This was the …Continue reading →

Sarah and her family are looking forward to Miracle Treat Day.
Like most 5-year-olds, my daughter Jordan is enjoying summer vacation. She’s taking tap and ballet classes and completed “safety city” training at the Franklin Recreation department. She graduated from Kindergarten Kick Start, a fun way to get ready for school in the fall. She’s also enjoying visits to the Milwaukee County Zoo and the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum with her little brother, Joseph, Jr. who we call “Deuce.”
Thursday, Aug. 8, we will be heading to our local Dairy Queen to purchase one of Jordan’s favorite things, DQ Blizzards. Why Aug. 8? Because participating area Dairy Queen stores will donate proceeds from every …Continue reading →
