About the Deborah F. Sager Memorial Fund

Families count the days until their baby arrives, but what if that day comes too soon or with complications? 

The Deborah F. Sager Memorial Fund was formed after the tragic passing of Deborah Felisse Sager in 1978 with the net proceeds ($150,000) of the former Newcomb Hospital Horse Shows and the Atlantic City International Equestrian Festival from 1978-82. In support of the neonatal and pediatric departments, the DFSMF has raised more than $700,000 since 2012, allowing the Fund to continue to support the vital needs of children. Today, the DFSMF supports Inspira’s neonatal and pediatric units and enhances the delivery of high-quality life-saving care to infants in Southern New Jersey.

You can be a part of the DFSMF story and give preemies in our area a fighting chance at life.

In Loving Memory of Rosemary (Dandrea) Buono

Rosemary was an incredible friend who genuinely cared about people and always found a way to help others.
She worked as a labor and delivery nurse at Newcomb Hospital, ran the Child Wellness Clinic for the Vineland
Public Health Department, and advocated for the Deborah F. Sager NICU. She was an exceptional delivery
nurse, with a passion and commitment to bettering the lives of children in need. Rosemary’s legacy lives on at
the Deborah F. Sager Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Thank you to the following donors who made gifts in her memory.
