About the Forrest Spence Fund:

The story of the Forrest Spence Fund begins in 2007 with the birth of Robert Forrest Spence in Memphis, Tennessee. Shortly after his birth, Forrest developed complications from an infection, and was rushed to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital where he eventually passed away after a 55-day battle. The outpouring of love the Spences received during Forrest’s life forever changed them, and upon his death they founded the Forrest Spence Fund to give back to their community and the hospital that fought so valiantly for their son. The Forrest Spence Fund, a 501c3 non-profit organization, exists to assist with the non-medical needs of families and children dealing with critical or chronic illness across the Mid-South.
