Three new names have been added, pink and blue stars honoring a newborn, purchased by families as a donation to the Deborah F. Sager Memorial Fund (DFSMF). The newest additions are: Brogan Elias Mackafee, Aziz Ozdemir and Hakan E. Ozdemir.
“Having the opportunity to celebrate the lives that come into our world at the hospital through our Star Light, Star Bright Memories Wall is a wonderful remembrance of how precious life is,” said Carolyn Heckman, Executive Director, South Jersey Healthcare Foundation. “These special stars hang on our wall in honor of our babies and represent donations to the DFSMF to provide critical equipment and services for pediatrics, neo-natal and newborn care at South Jersey Healthcare Regional Medical Center.”
The South Jersey Healthcare Regional Medical Center invites all families to purchase a Star. With a gift of just $50, a child’s birth will be remembered with a personalized, etched Newborn Star on the Star Light, Star Bright Memories Wall at the entrance of the Women's & Children's Center of Care at the Regional Medical Center for one year. After one year, stars are given to the family as a keepsake. With a gift of $300, the baby’s Star remains on the wall permanently to be seen for generations to come.
The Deborah F. Sager Memorial Fund (DFSMF) was established in 1978 as a memorial tribute to the vital, giving and loving child that was Deborah Felisse Sager. Debbie was just 12 years old when her life was taken by a careless driver. Today, the DFSMF is a restricted fund of the South Jersey Healthcare Foundation. Earnings from the DFSMF continue to provide critical equipment and services for pediatrics, neo-natal and newborn care at South Jersey Health System. The Deborah F. Sager Memorial fund continues to make vital contributions to help ensure quality health care for children.
