CONNOISSEUR MEDIA Oldies/Adult Hits WDRC-F (1029)/HARTFORD, Rock WPLR-F (991)/NEW HAVEN and Oldies/Adult Hits WFOX-F (959)/STAMFORD-NORWALK morning duo CHAZ AND AJ helped raise over $15,000 for a local Connecticut veteran in risk of losing his home today.
MIDDLETOWN resident BRENDON CAMERON, who formerly served in the U.S. AIR FORCE in DESERT STORM, was living with his wife JANETTE, and their young family when he suddenly started experiencing dangerous symptoms consistent with Gulf War Syndrome, including epilepsy, tremors, weakness, fatigue, and memory loss among many others. His declining health forced him to stop working. Currently he requires 24-hour care, forcing his wife to leave her job to take care of him. As a result, their home is in foreclosure and they need $8,000 to save it.
CHAZ & AJ invited the CAMERONS on the show on VETERANS DAY to share their story. Within the first few minutes, the donations came pouring in: a pair of BLACK SABBATH tickets as an auction item. Sen. RICHARD BLUMENTHAL offered a breakfast with him in WASHINGTON and tour of Senate floor. Throughout the show, massive donations were called in. Before the end of the show, CHAZ & AJ were able to raise $15,835!
“We’ve done some amazing things on the air," CHAZ said. "This I will remember forever. Once again, our listeners blew us away with their generosity."
