The Carrs are longtime supporters of Valley Children’s. Derek and Heather Carr established DC4KIDS in 2015, two years after the birth of their first child, Dallas. He was born with potentially life-threatening congenital anomaly of his intestines. Dallas was rushed into emergency surgery at Valley Children’s. He underwent two more surgeries and spent 23 days in Valley Children’s Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the highest level of care available for neonates and infants between the Bay Area and Los Angeles. Today, Dallas is a healthy, rambunctious preschooler.
“Valley Children’s helped save my son’s life and I thank God the Hospital was there for us,” says Derek Carr. “We’ll do anything we can to raise awareness and funds. The way everyone there treated my son, my wife and me and our entire extended family, was incredible. We want other families to experience that incredible care, too.”
David and Melody Carr are also advocates for Valley Children’s. Our pediatric specialists care for three of their five children, who have type 1 diabetes. Valley Children’s also has an outpatient center in the Carrs’ hometown of Bakersfield – Eagle Oaks Specialty Care Center.
The DC4KIDS campaign is intended to fund the most immediate needs at Valley Children’s. DC4KIDS helps Valley Children’s Healthcare meet the needs of the more than 1.3 million children who live throughout Central California. To date, DC4KIDS has raised more than $400,000 for Valley Children’s.
