"It's a blessing that the stations were able to come together and jump behind not only Boogie being a survivor, but us being able to tell his story to help somebody else," said Tropikana. "There's no bigger or better feeling or blessing that I can imagine that would compare to being able to have a miracle kid that is going to be able to be a blessing for another sick kid."
