Cat Country98.7 and Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart, a proud member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, raised more than $132,763 during the station’s Cat Country Cares For Kids Radiothon, presented by Wind Creek Atmore. The annual event at Cordova Mall raised funds for a new neonatal transport vehicle.
Cat Country Cares for Kids Radiothon was hosted by Cat Country 98.7 and WEAR ABC 3 News Pensacola host Sue Straughn as well as NewsRadio 92.3 & ESPN Pensacola. 
The event provided listeners with the opportunity to hear from children and their parents about the high-quality care and recovery they received at Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart, which serves the Gulf Coast. Funds raised during the one-day broadcast completed the campaign to purchase a new Neonatal Transport Vehicle for Studer Family Children’s Hospital. This vehicle is equipped with a specialized incubator capable of delivering a level of quality care comparable to what a child would receive inside our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Morning show co-host Brent Lane said, “The Neonatal Transport Unit is vital to our community. To accomplish the goal of paying off the transport unit is such a blessing. The NICU at the Studer Family Children’s Hospital is a standout for care in the Southeast. Cat Country 98.7
was proud to join Channel 3, NewsRadio 92.3, and ESPN Pensacola to help tell the story of why this hospital impacts so many lives and how it continues to make this community better.”
Co-host Mel McCrae adds, “It’s an honor to play a small part in helping to raise funds for this equipment that will help so many families in our community. It’s always remarkable to see the outpouring of love and support from so many businesses and individuals each year.”
“We are grateful for the dedication and support of our media partners, volunteers, and Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation team members,” said Adrienne Maygarden, president of Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation. “And, we are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from our community who embrace our mission and join us in ensuring the highest level of neonatal care is available to local families throughout the communities we serve – keeping families close to home and their support systems.” Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, such as Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart, are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations, but they can’t do it alone. Changing the health of even one child or family creates a ripple effect felt by communities for years to come. “The COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on children has demonstrated the value of having a hospital dedicated to pediatrics,” said Will Condon, president of Studer Family Children’s Hospital. “The disease has hospitalized children at all ages — from two weeks old to 17 years old. It’s never been more important to have specialized pediatric care in our region, and never more important to have the community’s support for our healing Mission.”
Since 1983, CMN Hospitals has raised more than $7 billion in unrestricted funds for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada. About the Studer Family Children’s Hospital The Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart serves as the only children’s hospital in Northwest Florida. The Children’s Hospital offers a wide range of children’s medical care, from a pediatric emergency room and neonatal intensive care unit to a medical staff of more than 120 board-certified physicians across 30 pediatric specialties. The Children’s Hospital provides quality, compassionate care to children, regardless of their parents’ ability to pay.

IMPACT has funded 120 grants totaling $12,830,000 since 2004.

The Money Tree Story – Christmas Wish 2019

Posted on: December 24th, 2019 by brent

Let me tell you the story of these three photos and how God works all things to His glory… In the first pic is the Money Tree that Labelle Performing Arts put together to help a family in need… On Saturday morning I got a text from Jeannie (head of Labelle) that they were looking for a family… At exactly the same time I got a Christmas wish from Joseph the manager of Good Morning Mattress Store on Davis Hwy… The wish went like this:
There was recently a customer that came in here and needed help with a mattress set, well while talking to her I was informed that she is having a really hard time finding a place to live. Her name is Ida, she is 65 years old and recently was put on cancer preventative medicine and goes back to the dr on January 6th. She went through remission but last week her doctors told her it came back. She has spinal problems is why she came into my store. She is on disability and doesn’t get much from her disability payments. Her organs are shutting down, she has no food, and is short $250 to pay her rent and will have nowhere to live if not paid before Christmas Eve. Please help…
So Labelle decided that is where their Money Tree should go… Monday morning they dropped it off and we called Ms. Ida to let her know someone had nominated her for a Christmas Wish and we were going to help with her rent. What we found out is that she has been admitted to Sacred Heart for a heart attack and was under going stress tests etc. So, Candy and I grabbed Santa Paws and went over to visit her and bring her some cash… Before we left we counted the Cash… I called Jeannie and asked how much she though they were donating… she said she wanted to be sure to cover the rent so she put a $100 on the tree and thought it might have been about $400 bucks… When we got to Sacred Heart we got to visit Ms. Ida… and told her we had enough for her rent… In fact we had about $670 (Surprise Labelle… you raised a lot of cash on your tree)… Ms. Ida broke into tears and we were blessed to be the vessel for the blessing… But that is not where the story ends.
Ms. Ida looked at us and said “can you help Joseph?” We looked at her blankly, this caught me off guard. Without hesitation Ms. Ida grabbed her phone and called the person that put the wish in for her and said “how much did you tell me you need to keep from being evicted?” He told her and she hung up with out a word. She proceeded to pull $290 out of the cash we had delivered and asked us to take it back to Joseph saying “I got more than I needed, please go help him too.”
So we went over to see Joseph and as we relayed the story… We asked what made him put the Christmas Wish in and he said it was all could think of to do. He said Ms. Ida had called him to tell him how much she appreciated it… That’s when we got to tell him we were in the room when she called him about his needs and sent us back with the $290 he needed.
Candy hugged him for a full 2 minutes and today we are reminded that God moves people to help each other and in the end provides.
The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing. (Ps. 145:15-16)
Merry Christmas!
