iHeartMedia’s KFI-AM Los Angeles radio talk show host Tim Conway Junior touched the life of 11-year-old caller Jack Chavez. Jack, who lost his father three years ago, called the show because his dad listened when he went in for dialysis. When Jack mentioned spending his birthday with his mom in the hospital because of his congenital heart disease, Conway set up a GoFundMe page to send him to Disney World for his birthday. Within a week, they raised more than $34,000. Besides the birthday of a lifetime, the money will help pay off bills and help Jack go to college, which is something his father always wanted for him.
