By supporting Stories of Light, you can help make local wishes come true!

 

Now in its 12th year, Stories of Light® is a 32-hour radiothon and the largest annual fundraiser for Make-A-Wish Oklahoma. KRMG’s Morning News Host Dan Potter and KRMG's Evening News host Dick Loftin will broadcast live from LaFortune Park each day. Hear heartwarming and inspiring stories from Wish Kids and their families. These stories serve as inspiration and motivation for KRMG listeners and the community to contribute to Make-A-Wish Oklahoma.  Wish stories from children whose wishes have already been granted are told over the radio. These stories are very dramatic and compelling to the listening audience.

 

In addition, on Thursday, November 16th from 6am to 6pm you can drop your cash, check or credit card donation by Reasor's at one of these locations: 41st & Peoria in Tulsa, 111th and Memorial in Bixby, 86th Street North and Hwy 169 in Owasso, Elm and the Creek Turnpike in Jenks, 71st and Lynn Lane in Broken Arrow or 1000 West Will Rogers in Claremore.  Members of the police departments from Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Jenks, Owasso, Bixby and Claremore will be on hand on Thursday to help with the fund-raising efforts.

 

Donations generated from Stories of Light® enable Make-A-Wish Oklahoma to grant wishes to Oklahoma children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

 

Make-A-Wish Oklahoma was formed in 1982 and has granted close to 2,800 wishes since its inception.  The chapter is funded through donations from individuals, corporations, school groups, foundations and community organizations.

My mom has been called just about everything…A once in a lifetime kind of friend… A gift… An angel on earth... She was unique and vibrant. Mom always had an easy, simple way about her. To me, she was simply Mom, and she lived with my husband, Mark, and I for the last six years of her life while fighting stage IV breast cancer. This year, I will run the 13.1 mile Rock n Roll San Antonio Half-Marathon in memory of my mom, Sharon, who lost her life at age 63 on the evening of September 29, 2009. I am ready to run and to honor her tenacity and love for life with every training step and every race mile! She would be jumping up and down in encouragement on the sidelines of this race if she was alive today, and she would encourage you in the very same way!

My goal is to raise a dollar to fund finding the cure for breast cancer for every single day that my mom fought her second diagnosis - stage IV breast cancer. When I think about the pain and treatments that she endured with a smile on her face, I realize that the marathon training I am doing pales in comparison. Every day that she woke up since that fateful diagnosis on January 4, 2004 was a blessing. Every round of chemo, ICU stay, ventilator treatment, and doctor visit she emerged from with that smile still spread wide across her face, a miracle. Living with my mom taught me a lot about toughness, about choosing joy in the midst of pain, and about the strength and grandiosity of spirit that can be held in a thin, tiny frame. 

My mom would tell you to do the important things today, and not plan and wait for someday in the future. Because she knew all too well, that tomorrow does not always come and the next day is never promised to us. Thankfully, she made it long enough to witness the birth of my son, Ryan. 

Cancer accompanied my mother everywhere she went for the last 15 years of her life. The disease powerfully twisted everything we thought to be true about life and broke the mold of our expectations about how life should go. But the cancer also acted like a crucible, forcing authenticity to the top, clarifying what was important over what was urgent, and giving us all the chance to think and talk about the important things in life. 

My friends and family, as well as my mom’s friends have been so caring during her illness and since her death, and they’ve been extra supportive of this goal I’ve set out to accomplish. It feels so good to be able to do something positive to bring attention to this disease which attacked my family. I am ready to fight back and raise awareness about stage 4 breast cancer. The weekend of the race would be her 64th birthday, and I am excited and ready to reach my training and fundraising goals to honor her memory by completing this race. I can’t imagine a better way to spend such a special date!

I am a military "brat." I am a marathoner. I am also a breast cancer survivor.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2009. I was three quarters of the way through my goal of running either a marathon or half marathon every month in 2009 when I was hit with the dreaded news: "I think that’s cancer." I had found a lump on the side of my right breast back in June, but I waited a few months to have it checked by a doctor, thinking I had a cracked rib. Turns out I had both breast cancer and a cracked rib! After a whirlwind of two surgeries, tests and treatments, I finished my chemotherapy and radiation therapy in April 2010. 

My family didn’t have a history of breast cancer. I was fit, ate healthy, drank green tea daily, took Vitamin D - I did everything I was supposed to do to prevent breast cancer. My diagnosis made me realize that everyone is susceptible to the disease. It does not discriminate. It made me want to make people aware and to help find a cure. That’s when I found the Susan G. Komen Marathon for the Cure. 

Running the Marine Corps Marathon for Marathon for the Cure embodies the three things with which I identify the most and for which I am most proud: being a military brat, a marathoner, and a survivor. I will be able to honor my friends and all soldiers currently serving in the military, as well as my father, all of my friends’ fathers, and veterans. I will be doing one of the things I love, which is to run marathons. And by finishing the marathon, I will prove to myself that breast cancer can’t beat me - that I’m a survivor.

Whenever my family gets together, I find myself thinking about my mother's oncologist.

A handful of years and many good check-ups after my mom's fight with breast cancer. Some part of me still automatically thanks the doctors who saved her life and continue to give us the gift of being together. Because of the excellent care that my mom received and the fact that her cancer was detected early, we are still a family. My mom would have died at age 51 if early detection technology, advanced surgery, and chemotherapy had not been available to her. Instead, myfamily has been given years of love, friendship, and adventure together. 

My mom faced breast cancer with incredible bravery, humor, and heart. With my brother off at college, it was just the two of us at home, and there was a lot of laughter as we navigated a year of surgeries and treatment. Amazingly, my mom managed to cultivate something positive out of her illness: we became more inventive cooks as we took her doctor’s advice and incorporated more organic and natural foods into our diet; we spent time together watching old movies and took a vacation to the beach. When my mom was healthy again, she finally started traveling abroad something she’d talked and dreamed about since I was young. 

That is why I am running the Portland Half Marathon for the Komen Foundation and for my mom: I can’t imagine a better way to honor the spirit with which she fought breast cancer than to do something active, challenging, and fun. I am elated to support the research efforts that enabled my mom to fight breast cancer and will arm women around the world to do the same. I am equally excited to be running as part of the Komen Team in celebration of the power and strength of women fighting for their health, and changing their lives in the process.
