Like so many families, Michael and Michelle Ward wanted to do something special for their son’s first birthday. Instead of gifts to open and bows to unwrap they asked their family and friends to donate to Community Regional Medical Centers Level III NICU – a service they were so grateful to have when they needed it most.

Our good friends from Table Mountain Rancheria, were once again, building a float – and building American Pride – on Community Regional Medical Center’s campus.

Community Medical Foundation’s parking lot was the “base camp” for the Table Mountain members to build and assemble their traditional float for the 2014 Fresno Veterans Day Parade. This year’s parade honors the United States Coast Guard while giving special recognition to the Korean War veterans and their families.

We lost our good friend and colleague, Dr. Kenny O’Brien this last weekend. He was one of a kind and will be lovingly missed as he was such an integral part of all of us at Community Medical Centers for so many years. His smiles, jokes and tootsie rolls were among his many gifts to us! He certainly touched so many people over the years as a physician, donor and a unique volunteer at Community Regional. He was one of our Pioneering Physicians – along with Drs. Woo, Lowe, Masten, Mau, Jing, Schiff, Sam, Wiens, and James. The greatest generation, right?

“I took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge for a family member and my good friend Brian Laird who we lost to ALS in 2012. Before he died Brian and his family established a fund at Community Medical Centers called “The Laird’s Gift” that helps patients with ALS and other neurological disorders.  In honor of Brian, I directed my support for ALS to help patients here where I work.

I am always so impressed by the generosity of our community and its donor-investors. We received a $75,000 donation that will double its dollar value to help burn survivors at Community Regional Medical Center’s Leon S. Peters Burn Center thanks to longtime donor JP Lamborn and Hanford couple Dave and Anne Bush.

My 7 year old is at the age where he loves playing sports, especially soccer. It’s so fun to see him active and having fun. But as a mom, I worry about him getting hurt while playing.

I see news reports where professional football players have life-altering health concerns because of concussions. I watched officials during the recent World Cup soccer championship playoffs allow a player with a concussion back on the field. News reports said later he couldn’t remember winning the game.
