Brian Laird went to doctors with complaints of back and shoulder pain in 2010 as well as trouble breathing — three weeks later he was diagnosed with ALS — better known as Lou Gehrig's disease. This neuromuscular disease slowly steals away an individual's ability to function as the muscles in the body quit working. It was Brian's dream to raise funds to help create a world-class neurological center at Community Regional Medical Center, so people won't need to travel great distances to get the neurological care they need.Back to Videos

Kasey Kure, 33, used to visit Community Regional Medical Center’s emergency department about once a week because of seizures and other medical problems. He lived occasionally on friends’ couches, but mostly on the street or in a shelter and he didn’t have a regular doctor or money to pay for medication – until he met Xochitl Valenzuela, an outreach specialist with the hospital’s Community Connections program.
Thanks to a $100,000 gift from the Fansler Foundation babies in Community Regional Medical Center’s Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) have a little more elbow room to help their healing.
The NICU expanded in 2011 – from 65- to 84-beds – making it one of the largest in California. Work completed on the expanded unit includes updated countertops, painting, flooring and equipment.
