“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.

The giant blisters on my feet keep fresh the fact that I actually completed the Eye-Q half marathon this weekend with our Special Friend and Community donor-investor Karen Musson and her daughter, Christina. 13 miles is a LONG way, but then again, Karen’s $500,000 commitment to Clovis Community Medical Center’s expansion will go a REALLY long way in benefitting Valley families for generations to come.

Had a great time with Mark Borba, Ross Borba, Nancy Flynn and Dwayne Borba Berrett as Rob Saroyan and I walked them trough the new bed tower at Clovis Community.  It is really taking shape!  The flooring is beautiful, the countertops and sinks and electrical are all in.  The VIP suites are exquisite – with warm tones of plum, silver and taupe.

Just heard the news about Bill Mc Farlane’s passing. Although it may have been time for him to go, Clovis and our world lost an icon.  Bill Mc Farlane will long be remembered as a pioneer and one who shaped a piece of our local history. We at Community, as well as many others, are grateful for his wisdom and generosity.

What a moving experience to witness one of our OWN Community Regional Medical Center RN’s be crowned Fresno County Mother of the Year! Julie Christopherson, Labor & Delivery, was nominated by her family and rose to the top amongst many other strong nominees. I was privileged to participate on the selection committee.

Can you guess who is the tall one in the “bump hat” and hair net in the center? Some of our Community Medical Centers team and I visited POM Wonderful in Del Rey – a short 20 min. drive from Community Regional Medical Center. What a great experience! We really got the “insider’s” tour and were just blown away. Who would ever know what actually goes on inside those walls? They produce everything that goes to market from bottles to various flavors of pomegranate juice to the boxes in which they are shipped.
