The Dan Brown Legacy Fund was born in the hearts of former Fresno State head football coach Pat Hill and the family of the late Bulldog defensive coordinator Dan Brown. The fund was established to honor Dan’s fight against brain cancer and to help support the work of the Central California Neuroscience Institute at Community Regional Medical Center.
Community Regional Medical Center’s Central California Neuroscience Institute is proud to offer one of the most advanced neurosciences institutes in the state. A training site for the UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program, the center also has earned "Center of Excellence" status.
Patients at Community Regional Medical Center felt like they had “two tickets to paradise” when singer, Eddie Money visited the 9th floor neuroscience unit and 6th floor Leon S. Peters Rehabilitation Center at the downtown hospital before his Dec. 2 concert at the Tower Theatre in Fresno. A portion of the proceeds from Money's acoustic "Very Special Christmas Show," benefited the Dan Brown Legacy Fund.

Brian Panish sees himself as a champion for the underdog, as the guy who will help even the playing field for those in need. The southern California attorney took on that role first in the 1970s playing defense on the Fresno State football team, then later fighting in the courtroom for victims of personal injury and product liability cases, and most recently by helping those in the Fresno area afflicted with brain, spine and nerve damage or disease.
Retired Fresno County Sheriff’s Deputy Cecil Mc Reynolds says he wakes up every day grateful for Community Regional Medical Center and the interventional neurologist who removed a clot from his brain and put him on the road to recovery after a second stroke. “I thank God every day for that Dr. Maidan and what he did at that hospital,” says McReynolds, 66.
Marina Hambly was a continent away from her London home, vacationing with her family at Yosemite National Park, when her husband had a massive stroke. While he recovered in a Fresno hospital, people took extraordinary steps to give Hambly and her 11-month-old daughter a home away from home.
Fresno State’s head football coach Pat Hill announced a fund to honor the memory of his longtime friend and coaching colleague Dan Brown who died of brain cancer. The Dan Brown Legacy Fund supports the Central California Neuroscience Institute at Community Regional Medical Center.
In 1994 my mother had her second stroke. Little did I know at the time that my future, my career and my goals would forever revolve around these events. When I was accepted to medical school I knew neurology was my calling and caring for stroke patients became my life’s work. It took eight years of postgraduate education to achieve this goal, and now I spend every day treating and working with stroke patients.
Dr. Tanya Warwick is passionate about limiting the effects of strokes on her patients – and it only takes one conversation to figure that out.
Dr. Warwick leads a team of specialists at Community Regional Medical Center, which recently earned the Gold Seal of Approval ™ from the Joint Commission for Primary Stroke Centers.
