On Saturday we held our second FIVE 4 FIVE donor appreciation event and it was awesome.  It was our opportunity to thank donor-investors who have stepped up when we asked for support for Clovis Community Medical Center – their doing so means the world to us and our patients.

The obituary was nicely written, sprinkled with loving memories and jovial asides in a few short sentences. It was posted on Facebook. It drew scores of “likes” from the writer’s friends and families. Wait, now. “Liking” an obituary? Is that just the way it is, just enough time spent in our hurly-burly lives?

Did any of the “likes” also invest $7 in a Hallmark card? Slip a handwritten note into an envelope? Make a donation in the deceased’s name? Call the friend to offer condolences?

Sometimes, adrenalin is a gift. When human beings lived in prehistoric times, the ability to fight or flee was needed because we lived so close to wild animals. Today's world still has situations when immediate energy for emergencies is needed. But too often, we live in a state of continual adrenalin surge which leads to a whole other set of issues! We don't need to live this way.

Often times parents share stories about when their children were born, but when an adopted son asked his mom about his birth – she didn’t have a story to tell.

That’s where we stepped in. This mother has four children and one son was adopted at the age of 2 from a foster home. Now 4-years-old, the son is curious about where he was born and what it was like. Hoping to create some memories like she had for her other children, she turned to us for help.
