A LITE-FM Christmas Wish for Austin
LITE-FM's Christmas Wish is back, thanks to our friends at Pioneer Federal Credit Union. On Miracle Marathon Day, we surprised Austin while the family was on a road trip.
When Austin moved to Idaho to be closer to his mom about two years ago, she was absolutely thrilled. She was even more thrilled when Austin met Joy, the love of his life and her beautiful little girl, Adele. She was so excited to become a grandma. Shortly later, she found out she'd be a grandma times two when Joy announced that she was pregnant with baby Anderson.
Unfortunately, this happy little family received the bad news that Adele had a form of brain cancer. She's got surgeries and months of treatment ahead and van that Joy has to drive her to and from her appointments at St. Luke's isn't in great shape. The heater and defroster aren't working and it's a challenge to keep the kids warm.
Misty loves her grand babies and it's hard to watch them go through this, so she nominated them for a Christmas Wish and we delivered...the gifts to her to keep safe while the family road trips to Disneyland so Adele can see the princesses before her next surgery.
Jeff Connell got in the Team Subaru of Nampa Forester Delivery Sleigh and dropped off a $200 gift card for gifts, family passes for Winter Garden aGlow, dinners from Smokey Mountain Pizzeria Grill and Papa Murphy's, plus some passes for Adele to see our princess friends from Capes and Crowns at the Canyon County Kids Expo if she's feeling well enough. But the biggest surprise at all was that our friend Ron and his team at Midas on Fairview offered a free inspection of the family van and up to $400 in repair work to get the heater working again before it gets too cold!
