WILMINGTON – The NHRMC Foundation and local radio station Sunny 104.5 are partnering to present the 2011 Sunny 104.5 Caring for Kids at NHRMC Radio-thon on Wednesday, September 21 and Thursday, September 22. The commercial-free broadcast will be live from the Betty H. Cameron Women's and Children's Hospital lobby from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. each day. The event will feature patients sharing their stories and interviews with physicians and staff.
The goal of the event is to raise funds to purchase pediatric ambulatory EEG monitors for the neurology patients in NHRMC’s Nunnelee Pediatric Clinic. The monitors are worn by a child who is suspected of having seizures and helps clinicians diagnose what type of seizure the child is having and the location in the brain where the seizure occurs. Having these monitors available locally will facilitate treatment and save families from traveling out of the area for this type of service.
