The Lairds' Gift

In 2010, Brian Laird went to his doctors with back and shoulder pain and trouble breathing. The diagnosis was ALS – better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease – and sadly, in less than two years the disease claimed Brian’s life.

But before his passing, Brian set a goal to raise $1 million dollars to help people like himself. His vision was to make lives “a little easier” for families in the Central Valley affected by neurological disease and to continue building the neurological center at Community Regional Medical Center so Valley residents won’t have to travel far to get the care they need.

“Our Valley needs to step up and take care of the people that have neurological diseases" said Brian. “We can give other people hope.”

Brian enlisted family and friends to do just that.

$1 million is the goal.

We’ve already raised more than $800,000.
