November the 12th was a happy day for 33 children undergoing treatments for cancer at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. Board members and volunteers for the Debbie Chisholm Memorial Foundation (DCMF) came bearing more than $7,000 in gifts made possible through donations received from the Riverside Sheriff’s Association and the San Bernardino County Safety Employees Benefit Association.

Gifts for these children fighting for their very lives included 37” Flat Panel LCD Televisions, Xbox 360 Elite, Bose Sound Dock Systems with 16 GB IPods, Tickets to Knotts Berry Farm with spending cash, Hewlett Packard Laptop Computers fully loaded, Portable DVD Players with Movies and much, much more. The kids were absolutely thrilled with their gifts, many of which their families had been saving money to buy for Christmas or a birthday.

DCMF has quickly become the charity of choice for Loma Linda choosing our small charity over more well known wish organizations such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Starlight Foundation. The Loma Linda staff knows that they can call us anytime day or night for a special request for a sick child and we will respond to that request immediately!

None of this would be possible without the financial assistance we receive throughout the year from benefactors such as RSA and SEBA. Our sincere thanks to those fine organizations and the thousands of their members who have supported DCMF since 1994.
