Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center Receives $23K Donation for NICU
THE WOODLANDS, Texas (October 4, 2017) – John and Paige Wolf, founders of the Jack Wolf, IV Memorial Golf Tournament, recently presented Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center with a $23,000 donation from funds raised from their 11th annual golf tournament.
John and Paige Wolf’s first child, Jack, was born prematurely on May 5, 2005, with a lethal form of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). The Wolf family selected Memorial Hermann The Woodlands for their care based upon its experienced, compassionate neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) team. John and Paige were able to bring Jack home under hospice care, but Jack lost his battle with OI and passed away at just 5 weeks old.
The Wolfs began hosting the Jack Wolf, IV Memorial Golf Tournament in honor of their son, with funds raised benefiting the NICU at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands and the families they serve every day. The couple has since had two children at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands – Max and Remi. In 2016, Wolf Park was established at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands, in honor of the Wolf family and their generosity to the medical center, which has touched the lives of numerous NICU patients.
“Wolf Park is open to pediatric patients and other children, but it’s also a place for NICU parents to take a break and for staff and visitors to enjoy as well,” shared director of Children’s Services Elizabeth Kutchback, RN. “The Wolfs are considered family to us at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands. This latest donation is a reminder of their passion for helping other NICU families.”
Since the golf tournament’s inception, more than $130,000 has been raised for Memorial Hermann The Woodlands.
