The radio employees are calling themselves “Team Maggie” and they are rooting, praying and supporting Maggie anyway they can. They are even asking listeners to post uplifting photos with encouraging messages to the youngster on their web site. Folks from as far away as Texas, Louisiana and Vermont have done so, but Townsquare media promotions director and WQCB on air personality Nelson Jewell went a step further than that. After hearing Maggie was upset over losing her hair, Jewell shaved his own head.
"A lot of people are behind you. We love you. Don't worry about the hair. It's going to grow back," Jewell said in his online video to Maggie posted on wqcb-fm.com.
Maggie is still in Boston and will turn 5 on Aug. 19. 'Team Maggie' is asking well-wishers who would like to send her a birthday card to do so by mailing it to:
BMT Unit Floating 6
