Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon helping local families

Posted: Updated:

Friday was day two of the Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon - a fundraiser to help families like the Jansma's pay for all the extra expenses associated with childhood illness.

Their son Elijah was diagnosed with a brain tumor at seven months old.  And then six years later, the cancer came back.

The Jansma family lives in Sibley, Iowa - an hour from Sioux Falls, which means little things like gas to get Elijah to his appointments really adds up.

But the good news is anyone can help.

"Every little bit helps. You may not think you can donate a lot, but even $5.00. You probably got a coffee on your way to work this morning. Skip coffee one day or make coffee at home. Any little bit toward this helps," said Chad Jansma, Elijah's dad.

100% of the event's proceeds goes to help local families.  You can still donate by clicking on the link provided.
