Radio-A-Thon hopes to raise thousands for Make-A-Wish kids

GREENFIELD (WITI) -- Playing, coloring, and hanging out with her little brother are just some of the things Jordan Amble loves to do. But this 5-year-old has already had to deal with issues a child should never have to face.

"She has what's called a Vein of Galen Malformation and it's a very rare malformation in her brain. Only one in every three million kids has it," said Jordan's mother Sarah.

After hearing Jordan's story, the Make-A-Wish Foundation stepped in. Jordan's wish was to go to Disney World with her family.

"There's a really special reason why, because I wanted to see the princesses," said Jordan.

Not once on her trip did she think about the hospital or doctors.

"It felt good because when I go to the hospital sometimes they put IV's in there and IV's can hurt sometimes," said Jordan.

Now you have the chance to help children like Jordan. Make-A-Wish is hosting its annual Radio-A-Thon on Oldies 95.7.

"Every donation is really important to us to raise the kind of money we need to grant 300 plus wishes in Wisconsin. That's a huge undertaking," says Make-A-Wish Wisconsin Public Relations Manager Forrest Doolen.

Not only do these wishes bring joy to the lives of children facing life-threatening illnesses, they can actually help them physically too.

"89% of family's report that their child's health improved after having a wish come true," said Doolen.

Jordan's prognosis is unknown and she will undergo another brain surgery in 2 years. That's why the memories made through Make-A-Wish are priceless.

"They gave me my princess. I'm so happy to have her in my life and to be a part of her life and to see her grow up to be the young woman she's going to be I know," said Jordan's father Joseph.

The Make-A-Wish Radio-A-Thon on Oldies 95.7 will be going on November 25th and 26th from 6am - 6pm. For more information on the Make-A-Wish Radio-A-Thon CLICK HERE. To make a donation call 1-855-231-WISH.
