“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.

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.
