Meet Our Kids

In the summer of 2021, Elizabeth was a typical 9-year-old. The fifth grader’s life took an unexpected turn days after her tenth birthday when she received the devastating diagnosis of leukemia on August 3rd, 2021.

At age 14, Harrison was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin lymphoma. A freshman in high school at the time, Harrison endured five rounds of chemotherapy and 14 radiation treatments.

At four months old, Jimmy was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and borderline hydrocephalus, and the prognosis looked grim. Many doubted he would live to see his first birthday.

About DVE Rock’s Children’s Radiothon

Each fall, Pittsburgh’s own 102.5 WDVE hosts the annual DVE Rocks Children’s Radiothon to raise vital funds that enable UPMC Children’s to provide the highest level of care to each patient when they need it most.

Tune in and join us in support of patients and families at UPMC Children’s who live with and fight illnesses like pediatric cancer, juvenile diabetes, asthma, organ transplantation, and cardiac care. Funds also support the Child Life Staff and their efforts to make a child’s stay in the hospital less scary and more enjoyable.
