 NORFOLK, Va., – 92.9 The Wave kicks off the 6th Annual WAVE Goodbye to Cancer Radiothon on Friday, March 15 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. with a live broadcast from Max Media’s studios.  All funds raised will go to CHKD’s cancer program.

CHKD provides advanced-level pediatric cancer care and follow up for approximately 500 local childhood cancer patients, ranging in age from newborns to survivors in their mid 20s. More than 70 new cases are diagnosed each year.  

Money raised in the radiothon will help CHKD’s team of pediatric oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, pediatric oncology nurses and nurse practitioners provide the nation’s most up-to-date treatments close to home for local patients and their families.  This is the only radiothon in Hampton Roads dedicated exclusively to childhood cancer.
