The faces of the 2018 Radiothon for Life, Jeff and Stacy Marcotte, couldn't be any more pleased with how everything turned out at the 2018 Radiothon for Life. 

"It's been really good," shared Jeff, "It's been a really good day, busy day. Lot's of support around here. And Estevan is just unreal with support and the hospital foundation fundraisers."

"I think the biggest thing is just keeping it local, as much as we can do close to home for everybody is better. Whether it's with cancer and the chemotherapy or dialysis or CT scans or whatever, just keeping it local."

Stacy added her thoughts sharing that it was unbelievable to see the support shown today. 

"It was pretty amazing."

As the Marcottes were making their way to the finale of the Radiothon, they heard that the total was up to $95,000 after the naming rights to the new chemotherapy room had been sold.

"We had a phone call from Jeff's mom and dad (Brian and Patty Marcotte)," she shared, "that they donated $5,000 to the Radiothon and that brought the total to $100,935."

The day ended with more than $104,000 raised for the St. Joesph's Hospital Foundation.
