Giving to our pediatric patients

Would you like to donate to our pediatric patients while they are at FMC? Check out our current Wish List. The pediatric patients and families thank you for your donation. Your generosity is much appreciated. A gift of toys, games or activity supplies can make a huge difference to families and their child while spending time in the hospital. Here is a list of some needed items.
