Adam & Jen are about to make a BIG difference in our community and with the help of YOU it’s gonna be a MILLION DOLLAR DIFFERENCE! It’s Adam & Jen’s Million Dollar Difference Radiothon presented by Numerica Credit Union.
One of the best things about living in the Tri Cities is the community. We are continually growing but have always been able to maintain that small town feel. When someone in our community is in need, so many step up to help. One of the issues we are facing as a nation is medical care and expenses. Unfortunately, that is something even we have not been able to escape. After some research, we have found that many of our neighbors are buried under medical debt to the tune of well over a million dollars’ worth throughout the Columbia basin.
Medical debt is not something someone takes on electively, it’s normally an emergency that they didn’t see coming. Our very own Jen, from Adam & Jen in the morning on 94.9 The Wolf, knows all too well this scenario. When her 3 year old son Jazz fell ill, being diagnosed with a life threatening chronic disease, both her and her husband worked full times jobs…but time away from work being with their son in the hospital took a toll on their jobs and the medical bills continued to pile up. “We did everything we could to take care of our bills, Jen said, but when a single chemo treatment was over $16,000.00, we just couldn’t keep our head above water, it wasn’t long before our medical debt was over $400,000.00”.
So many people have faced these same challenges and how can you make any other choice when you are told “this can save your son’s life but it will cost you your livelihood, your savings, your home”? These debts are not by choice but by necessity.
Adam & Jen decided they wanted to give back, to find a way to help our community…..by paying off 1 MILLION DOLLARS IN MEDICAL DEBT!!! We have found an amazing company, RIP Medical Debt, which can purchase medical debt in our community for pennies on the dollar. That means that we only need to raise $15,000.00 to pay off over 1 Million dollars of debt right here in the Columbia Basin. Adam & Jen will be broadcasting LIVE taking donations May 3rd – 5th from 6am – 6pm.
