Complications Kept Asher in the Hospital

Asher is a lovable 4-month-old from Eldon, Missouri. Today, he is happy and healthy, but only a few months ago, he was fighting for his life.

Shortly after he was born, Asher was whisked away from his parents with a suspected diagnosis of down syndrome. As a result, he was transferred within hours of his birth to the NICU at MU Health Care’s Women and Children’s Hospital in Columbia, Missouri.

Alice's Story

At the Dale K. Graham Veterans Foundation, volunteers are the most vital part of our operations. Without them, it would be impossible for the Foundation to assist the hundreds of heroes that walk through our doors every week needing assistance. Dedicated volunteers like Alice R. are essential to the organization, and their passion for serving the community shines through their commitment to their clients.
