When it comes to our children, we want the best for them, especially when it comes to medical care. Another group of people that have the same mission in mind are the supporters of the Children's Miracle Network. You can join and help make that mission come true by supporting the Children's Miracle Network tomorrow and Friday on Mix 93-1.

Thursday and Friday, Mix 93-1 will be committing 24 hours of programming to support the pediatric services at Mother Frances Hospital. Every single dollar that is raised will stay right here in East Texas and be used to purchase new technology and new equipment for the pediatric floor, the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), the emergency room in the hospital and clinics throughout East Texas.

You can become a Mix Miracle Maker by making a $20 pledge each month for a year to support the Children's Miracle Network. Your donation will be combined with other donations to help by new equipment to help care for the children in East Texas.

I had the opportunity last week to sit on the allocation board to help spend the funds raised from last years' radiothons, telethons and donations. I can tell you the needs greatly outweighed the funds and with a shortfall, we were not able to purchase some life saving equipment for our littlest of children, so each and every dollar does and will make a difference.

The 15th annual Mix with Kids Children's Miracle Network radiothon on Mix 93-1 is presented by Brookside Dental in Tyler and we, along with all the children of East Texas, will greatly appreciate your support.
