WBT-AM Makes Wishes Come True (WBT-AM)

Topic: Youth-Focused Initiatives

Greater Media’s WBT-AM Charlotte host Keith Larson’s has written a book, "That Season of Hope," to help raise money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, the Carolina Panthers’ Keep Pounding Cancer Fund and the March Forth with Hope Foundation. In 2003, a 12-year-old cancer patient, Hope, told the Make-a-Wish Foundation, "I am lucky…I have been to Disney World, swam with the dolphins in Cancun and go to the beach all the time. You say there are 155 kids on the waiting list? Well, my wish is to grant all their wishes, all 155 of them. And to do it just as soon as possible." Larson interviewed Hope on WBT-AM, and his book will continue her legacy of support Make-A-Wish.
