This past Tuesday night (082818) we had a dinner at Chili's in Nacogdoches, with a few of our friends from Head Pediatrics. Dr. Ryan Head, Scott Nelson, Fran Terno, myself, and the 'rest' - were all on hand for the reveal. The guests of honor were our 2 local Kidd's Kids Families. We asked them there in the guise that we were having a dinner for all of the Kidd's Kids that were nominated from our area. Even if they didn't get picked, we wanted to do something nice for them.

Kidds Kids 2018

When the night started at 6:30pm, and everyone was enjoying Southwestern Egg Rolls, Chips, Salsa, and Guacamole, I got to break the great news. EVERYONE that was invited that evening was going to on the Kidd's Kids Trip, with the entire Kidd Kraddick Morning Show. From the 52 total families selected for the trip, including 58 Kidd's Kids, we had 2 in our area.

The King family from Mt.Enterprise is going on the trip November 15 - 19th. 7 Year old Jaden, his Mother Andie, Aunt Alyssa, and 4 year old brother Logan, are all going to Disney. Kidd's Kid Jaden was a joy to meet at the event. He has Spinal Muscular atrophy, scoliosis, and osteoporosis. His attitude was just great, and he was a real great guy to meet.

The Chase family was from Center, and they are ready for the fun too. Kidd's Kid 11 year old Parker, was a bright light at the event, and super excited to go to Disney World. She has a rare condition, Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis Type 2. Despite all the surgeries, and a possible liver transplant in her future, the family was so joyous. Mom Leah, and Parker's sisters, Skylar and Campbell, were in attendance to hear the great news about them all going on the trip.

They got selected, now comes our part. Giving on Kidd's Kids Day. Listen for more details soon on where we will be on Kidd's Kids Day October 9th in Lufkin and Nacogdoches where you can give. Or give online now, CLICK HERE to go to the Kidd's Kids Site.
