Lori Meyers-GagnonMarketing

Lori Myers

After 32 years in South Florida radio, I decided to venture out in search of better ways to bring the corporate brand into the digital space.
I've designed and patented a marketing premium that takes traditional promotional items to a whole new level.

The reaction to my product opened my eyes to what clients really want....UNIQUE, USEFUL PROMOTIONAL GIFTS THAT BRAND THE CORPORATE MESSAGE.
So I decided to partner with a designer/manufacturer who's custom creations have raised millions of dollars for retailers and their preferred charities.

I've also decided to follow my passion for music which led me to creating memorable, traffic-driving events, specializing in LIVE MUSIC concerts and charity fundraisers.

SO I DO WHAT I LOVE! And I'd love to share my passion with you!

Doc RenoFounder
Doc Reno

Cancer nearly silenced the voice of national radio powerhouse Doc Reno.

It also led the dynamo media personality to launch the My Family Matters Foundation to fill a heart-breaking need he encountered during his treatment and recovery.

Originally from Cleveland, Doc Reno came to South Florida in 2002. Here, he built a coast-to-coast following for iHeartRadio with shows in major markets including New York, Washington, D.C., San Diego, Dallas, Miami just to name a few.

At the same time, he pursued a healthy lifestyle, becoming an avid runner who has completed marathons and half-marathons. He serves the community through his association with many charities including Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital.

In the spring of 2018, Doc Reno was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. During 35 rounds of radiation and six rounds of rigorous chemo, he never missed one of his daily shows.

He was hospitalized twice.

“I met nurses and doctors and heard stories,” Doc Reno says. “I met people who were struggling financially. I learned there are programs that help you with medical bills, but they don’t pay your house payment or your car payment or buy groceries.”

Doc Reno was moved by the parents and family members who missed work to take their child or relative to the countless medical appointments required for successful cancer treatment. Often, the caregiver’s pay is docked.

Then, after a particularly difficult morning that sent Doc Reno to the hospital, the cold reality hit home.

His wife Erin stayed at his side until he was released that evening. The following week, her paycheck was missing one day’s salary.

“This really happens. I heard everyone’s story. Now it happened to us,” Doc Reno says. “This is happening, and people need help.”

He launched My Family Matters Foundation in the fall of 2018.

“I wanted to create my own foundation because nobody is going to be more passionate about it than I am,” he says.

Doc Reno’s longstanding work with Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital led to My Family Matters’ successful partnership with the hospital’s foundation.

Today, 3 1/2 years after his diagnosis, Doc Reno is cancer free.

He says, “My wife told me, ‘You are going to help people after you beat this.’ That’s exactly what I’m doing.”
