The Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital Foundation is dedicated to providing quality healthcare services to Fairbanks and surrounding areas. Many times, the financial toll of an illness on the residents of Fairbanks is significant. The Hospital Foundation has introduced a service to the community to facilitate donations for medical related expenses for patients that have to leave Fairbanks (as determined by Fairbanks Memorial Hospital) for specialized treatment. The new Community Fund will allow Fairbanksans to make tax-deductible contributions to help support eligible recipients.
Parker Merrifield is one such individual; the son of Chris and Marsha French, he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in January 2013 and has already undergone numerous surgeries which will be followed by chemotherapy. To make a tax-deductible donation to the Community Fund, use the secure Pay Pal option below. Donations will be used towards the expenses incurred in connection with receiving medical treatment. You will receive a tax letter to confirm your donation.
