“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 regret to announce to the Community Medical Centers family that we have lost one of our iconic supporters: Pete Peters passed away peacefully at his Fresno countryside home Tuesday afternoon. Pete would have reached his 95th birthday in May.

On July 28, 2011, Community Medical Centers and our entire community lost one of its quiet leaders in Karen Kister. For more than three decades, Karen worked to leave her mark on Community Medical Centers, beginning as a medical technologist and ending as laboratory manager.

Last Saturday night, it was my privilege to have orchestrated a special pre-Easter surprise for Shaela Warkentin, the 15-year old Bullard High School student who was involved in a traumatic car accident and after a month and a half is still in our Trauma Center.  I am writing to share with you what happened.  You may be aware of Shaela, since there has been a considerable amount of coverage on her story and an outpouring community of support for her and her family.
