My husband and I stumbled upon Life 96.5 in September 2013.

Our daughter had just been life flighted to Sanford after becoming deathly sick. She was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. We didn’t know if she would even survive or what kind of permanent damage she would have if she did recover. We had just moved and I had just started a new job about 1.5 months earlier and was very concerned with what would happen to us financially since I had no paid time off and we had no idea how long we would be in the hospital. We were taking a mental break and had left the Pediatric ICU hospital room to get a meal. I couldn’t find a radio station playing anything I liked in the car so I was scanning through the stations.

The radio stopped on your station and even though I didn’t know any of the music, for whatever reason I decided to just leave it where it was at. After listening for a little while the song “Strong Enough” came on and the rest is history. God stepped in and used your radio station to bring us comfort when we were struggling to hang on. You never know what His plans are! He gave us the opportunity to move back home which in turn made it possible for both me and my husband to be by our daughters side 24/7 for 21 days in the hospital while our son was able to stay with family who could take care of him in our absence and get him to and from school every day.

Our daughter has made a complete recovery with no permanent damage and your station has been playing in my car everyday since. A couple days ago I set up a recurring monthly donation. Your station changed our lives and has brought us to God. Thank you for being there everyday!
