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.

In 1999, Ed and Sara Wilkins and their family spent days living in a conference room at then-University Medical Center, the area’s only Level 1 trauma center at the time. The space was close to Sam’s intensive care room – their son – just 27 and severely injured in a terrible traffic accident.

Miles from their home, the Wilkins wouldn’t leave the hospital in case something happened. Though Sam received the best care possible, after 30 plus days of fighting for his life, he lost his battle.

We had an unprecedented visit from the Leon S. Peters Board last week.  Nearly all the members of the board spent three hours of their time touring Community Regional. Jan Paul and I co-hosted. The intent was to physically show them how their philanthropic dollars are making an impact and give them a glimpse of some things we are looking to do next. They were totally engaged and thoroughly impressed the entire time.

I am excited to let you know that Clovis Community Medical Center’s Lymphedema Clinic was awarded a nearly $35,000 grant from Susan G. Komen Central Valley. This will help us provide lymphedema and related rehabilitation services to those battling breast cancer, who otherwise might not be able to afford the specialized care they need.

Lymphedema is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid causing swelling in the affected area, which can develop after breast surgery.
