Cancer Care Fund
The Cancer Care Fund helps meet the increasing costs of maintaining a state-of-the-art oncology program at Lake Charles Memorial. Fund support helps Memorial acquire new technology and upgrade treatment areas with new chemotherapy chairs for patients or educational materials to the community at large. Whether a one-time gift or a pledge extended over several years, donations are dedicated to the needs of the cancer program and treatment.

Heart Care Fund
The Heart Care Fund supports the cardiovascular programs at Lake Charles Memorial and the astounding changes cardiovascular medicine has undergone over the past few decades. Whether it involves upgrading equipment in one of our three cardiac catheterization labs, providing oversized digital monitors in our operating rooms to enhance the surgical experience for our physicians and their patients, or offering educational information about cardiovascular disease and strokes to the general public, your one-time gift or pledge extended over several years to the Heart Care Fund will help Memorial continue the expansions of the heart program..

Newborn Care Fund (The Pink & Blue Wall)
The Newborn Care Fund (aka The Pink & Blue Wall) enhances the neonatal program and birthing center at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital for Women which has grown to be the leader in women's health services, in particular the Family Birth Center. With this growth, comes additional revenue needs for equipment such as new baby monitors; updated furnishings in the labor, delivery and postpartum suites; or educational materials for expectant moms.

A special program designed to provide resources for the Family Birth Center, The Pink & Blue wall is an opportunity for parents, grandparents, relatives and friends to commemorate the birth of a baby while benefitting Memorial Hospital for Women. For a $100 donation, the baby's name and birth date will be placed on The Pink & Blue wall located in the lobby of the Memorial Hospital for Women.

The Pink & Blue wall is not restricted to newborns at Memorial Hospital for Women. Parents, grandparents, relatives or friends may commemorate any child on the wall, whether or not they were born at Memorial.

Pink & Blue registration forms are available in the Family Birth Center.
