A LITE-FM Christmas Wish for Kristi
LITE-FM's Christmas Wish is back, thanks to our friends at Pioneer Federal Credit Union.
Megan wrote to us about her mom Kristi who's having a year where when it rains, it pours. Kristi's been battling pancreatitis and that's had her in and out of the hospital more time than Megan can count. Those hospital stays included a trip to Seattle for a procedure that's provided her with some relief and helped her get back to work.
With mounting medical bills, Kristi getting back to work was a big deal. Finances were already tight for the family, as Kristi's husband found himself between jobs. He was able to find a new full-time job at the end of October but was still working an evening job doing sprinkler blowouts to help the family catch up.
Unfortunately, Kristi's car just broke down, which added yet another expense onto the family's plate. Christmas is her favorite time of year and with everything that's happened this year, she's found herself in a position where there might not be enough money to buy even small gifts for her six granddaughters. She's such a proud grandma and Megan knows she's crushed that she may not have anything to give them this year.
Initially, Megan asked us for a gift card to buy gifts for Kristi's grandkids but then took a shot at asking if there was a way we could get her mom into a more reliable car. The stars aligned and because when we shared Kristi's story with Rob at Treasure Valley Subaru, he told us not only was he going with us to deliver this wish...he had a BIG surprise for Kristi! We don't want to spoil it if you didn't hear the wish on the radio this morning, so go ahead...click play and see what he pulled off!
