Jamestown  (JRMC)  — A child who dies in the womb knows only its parents love. He knows no pain.

In support of these families, the 9-hole GOLF “fore” ANGELS tournament benefits infant bereavement care at Jamestown Regional Medical Center.

Every year, families experience the loss of an infant due to an unexpected circumstance. The Dr. Mandy and Dave Sorlie ANGELS fund helps pay medical bills for those parents through the JRMC Foundation. The fund is available to anyone who experiences infant loss at JRMC at the gestation of 16 weeks or greater up to 4 months of age due to unavoidable circumstances.

“Family is the most important thing in my world,” said Dr. Sorlie. “I can’t imagine losing a child at any age, much less never getting to meet them. It breaks my heart.”

ANGELS stands for Advocating for Neonatal Grief and Early Loss Support. On average, families that have insurance would otherwise have to pay more than $1,500 for these medical services. ANGELS removes this financial burden and helps families grieve by paying medical bills for families who experience loss.

Since the fund was established four years ago, ANGELS has helped, on average, two to three families each year, shared Dr. Sorlie.

“It is a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by people who care so deeply about others who experience the loss of a child,” said JRMC Foundation Director Lisa Jackson. “GOLF ‘fore’ ANGELS support is in remembrance of our angels.”

This year, the tournament raised more than $10,000 thanks to its sponsors, fund supporters and teams.
