Salt Lake City (PRWEB) April 9, 2010 -- The Primary Children’s Medical Center and KSL NewsRadio recently kicked off their 34th Annual Radiothon to raise funds for hospitalized children. Thomas Mower Sr., Chairman of SISEL International and an ardent supporter of Primary Children’s, opened his heart and wallet and pledged over $11,000 during the Radiothon fundraising event.
“My family is thrilled to be able to donate to Primary Children’s Medical Center. They were there for us when my son needed medical attention years ago, and they have helped so many others in amazing ways throughout the years. We are grateful for the hospital’s excellent care,” reflects Mower. “It was my turn to give back.”
One hundred percent of the donated funds will go directly to the hospital, helping to provide charity care, medical research, toys and art supplies, and to support special programs at the hospital, such as bereavement counseling and music therapy. Primary Children’s Medical Center provides medical care for children regardless of a family’s ability to pay. The two-day Radiothon was a tremendous success, with $449,498 being raised for the hospital.
The vision of Primary Children’s Medical Center is to provide the highest value for outstanding pediatric care, medical education, child advocacy, and research in the United States. “We are deeply grateful to Mr. Mower for this very generous donation,” says Sharon Goodrich, Foundation Director. “Eleven thousand dollars goes a long way to help children who are battling cancer, heart disease, cystic fibrosis, and many other illnesses and injuries.”
The mission statement, “The Child First and Always” is engraved in the limestone exterior at each of the hospital’s entrances, and describes the philosophy of how to provide healthcare for children in an atmosphere of love and concern. “It is heartwarming to consider how many lives have been touched by Primary Children’s Medical Center. Their commitment to children’s health and the high quality care that they provide is extraordinary,” said Mower.
