The cards were passed out the children at Kosair Children's Hospital on Friday.
Nearly 200,000 Valentine's Day Cards, candy and stickers poured into the radio station.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville radio station asked listeners to send in Valentine cards for the children at Kosair Children's Hospital. They were hoping every child could have three Valentine's cards, but they far exceeded their goal.
Nearly 200,000 Valentine's Day Cards, candy and stickers poured into 102.3 The Max.
"We thought the deadline was going to be Tuesday the 11 but the cards just kept rolling in," Radio show host Lynda Lambert said.
The cards were delivered to Kosair Children's Hospital Friday morning by ambulance, taken into a downstairs conference room and put into bags.
"The nurses, the doctors, they make you feel like family but the bottom line is it's still a hospital and it's very scary," Lambert said. "If you can give them Valentine's and cards that can make them feel the sense of normalcy that they're missing by being in the hospital it's a win-win situation."
Heather Nickel's son Jackson has been in Kosair since early December.
"It's overwhelming. We've just been overwhelmed with blessings of support and love through this whole process but on a day like today where he was so sad he wasn't going to be at school that he was going to miss out on this," Nickel said. "It really touches my heart as a mom."
