Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa's Tide 100.9 radio personality Ryan Fowler announced on Facebook that the station will begin accepting get well cards after listeners contacted him asking about Gold.

"I thought this would be an easy way to let Eli know how much we care about him. So, I decided to ask my boss, David Dubose, about doing a get well card drive for Eli Gold to help him. He said absolutely, thought it was a great idea," Fowler said in the post.

Cards will be accepted indefinitely at the Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa office, located on Skyland Boulevard.

Listeners who would like to mail in cards should include Eli Gold in the mailing and be sent to 142 Skyland Boulevard East Tuscaloosa, AL 35405.
