After our son/brother, Randall, passed away in 1996, we wanted a way to keep his memory alive while serving children in need in our community. We established the Randall Speck Special Needs Fund and have been amazed at the number of children we have been able to assist. It is definitely the best feeling one can get knowing that Randall's fund is helping kids get the medical attention they need and all of the credit for the success goes to Dave Estorge and the Memorial Hospital Foundation. All of their funds continue to provide much needed assistance for a variety of causes and we are proud to be a part of the MHG Foundation. Carol & Richard Speck and Allison & Jason Walker

I graduated from high school this past May, and during my senior year I put together a project called "Dollars for Diagnosis." I donated all of the monies that I raised to the Memorial Hospital's Breast Imaging Fund, which helps women along the Mississippi Gulf Coast pay for their breast imaging services they cannot afford. Without the help of the Foundation, I would not have been able to raise as much money as I did. It was a pleasure working with the Foundation's staff and knowing that the funds I raised helped others!

As an employee of Memorial, I have donated to the Foundation for many years. It is gratifying to see the positive effect of those contributions "building a healthier community" along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The Foundation is staffed by some great individuals who work extremely hard to ensure that they utilize the funds for the betterment of all.

The Memorial Foundation was instrumental and helped to fund a brand new mobile Immunization Van to provide immunizations and limited health screening services to the community. By providing the mobile van, Memorial is now able to reach more members of the community, providing preventative care to children and adults, which in turn helps Memorial carry out its mission of Building a Healthier Community. Some community screenings that are conducted on the van and in the community are: Blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose and stroke screenings. Key aspects of care for those needing immunizations include assessment of the individual’s immunization history, administration of needed vaccines, education about the vaccine and possible side effects, directions as to when the individual needs to return for additional immunizations and what to do in case of an adverse reaction to a vaccine. Those receiving health assessments are informed of the result of the screening with an explanation of what the result means. They are given education as appropriate, based on the screening result. Referral is made to other health care providers as needed. The community receiving this service are individuals who may not ever see a healthcare physician or get the needed immunizations.

All immunizations administered on the Van are entered into the statewide immunization registry so wherever they move their record will follow them. The Foundation continues to support this program by purchasing needed equipment and supplies to serve the community and continue this program.
