Raise money for The Forrest Spence Fund

5ee8f1a806525.jpgThe Forrest Spence Fund was started in 2007 by the parents of Forrest Spence, who lived only 55 days while fighting for his life at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. During Forrest’s short life, the Spence family became well acquainted with the countless non-medical needs that go unmet in families dealing with pediatric illness and loss.They launched the Fund in memory of their brave infant son as a way to give back to the community, and to the hospital staff who worked tirelessly for him.

The Forrest Spence Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to meet the non-medical needs of families with critically or chronically ill children in the Mid-South region. They provide individualized care for families such as personal financial family grants, necessary non-medical equipment, emotional support, professional counseling, and weekly meals for hospitalized families. The Fund also supports area hospitals by providing non-medical equipment and implementing staff appreciation programs.
