One special Valentines Day surprise was delivered to Christine Mortensen by radio station 88.3.

The family recently found out that their 5 year old adopted son has a rare and fatal disorder.

Because of the pain they've experienced, Michael wanted to make it special for his wife by nominating her for the surprise.

Christine says she's thankful for all the support, "With the tough road we've had in the last few months especially, and finding out his disorder is terminal, things like this are what keep me going."

The gift basket includes an overnight stay at Oakwood Resort, Cookie Cottage cookies, and restaurant gift cards.
