Albany -- A quick phone call and just 40¢ a day can help treat sick children in this area. 

The annual Children's Miracle Network Radio-thon is going on this week. B-100 radio personalities urged listeners to become "Miracle Makers" by donating $12.00 a month for a year.

All the money goes to the Children Miracle Network hospital here, Phoebe Putney, to help treat sick children and research cures for childhood illnesses.  

"Right now, 31 babies are in the neo-natal ICU fighting for their lives," said National Radio-thon Director Jim Littrell. "Sixteen kids are in the peds unit. Talk about what are you stressed about today? These are local families that are going through this."  

Last year the radio-thon raised more than $10,000. They expect to pass that amount this week.

This weekend, WALB-TV will host the Children's Miracle Network Celebration. You'll have another chance to call and donate starting at one Saturday afternoon.
