My amazing boyfriend Nick Stegner secretly wrote a letter to Cincinnati’s Q102 morning show nominating me for the Women to Recognize contest. I won!!
Jeff, Jenn and Fritsch (my favorite radio personalities) surprised me with a phone call to my cell. I call in to win so often that I recognized the number. I didn’t know what to think. They read Nick’s amazing letter to me (listen to the audio above – click on the arrow next to the speaker). It was so sweet it brought tears to my eyes. His letter talked about our relationship, my fight for my son and his disease Histiocytosis and our fight against heroin. At the end, the morning crew gave me a chance to talk about Histio. I explained what the disease is, how it receives no funding to find a cure and how it is considered rare. Jeff told people that if they wanted more information they should visit http://www.histio.org.
Not only did I win a $100 gift certificate to a Jeff Ruby restaurant and a $100 gift certificate for Mitchells Day Spa, I got a chance to educate listeners in Cincinnati on Histio. I was able to spread the word. Hopefully Histio.org saw a few more hits today and maybe even received a few donations. Thanks Nick and Q102!
