DOTHAN (Feb. 8, 2012) – For the 11th year in a row, Wiregrass residents will be treated to the heartwarming stories of hope and inspiration from the patients treated at Children’s of Alabama and their families during the annual “Music & Miracles” Radiothon set for February 9 and 10, from 6 a.m. till 6 p.m. each day. The Radiothon will be broadcast live on 95.5 WTVY Your Country FM station from Walmart Store #2534 (3300 South Oates St., Hwy. 231 South, Dothan 36301.)

Children’s of Alabama is the only hospital in the state that is dedicated solely to providing health care to ill and injured children. Last year, children from across Alabama and 42 other states made more than 630,000 visits to Children’s.
