Farron Sneed wasn’t pressured by his parents to pursue
certain activities or maintain a certain grade point average
when he was growing up. Sneed said his parents were
supportive of his decisions; and when he decided to go to
college, they supported him in that arena as well. Now he
says he wants to return those favors by supporting the
people who make Lovelace Westside Hospital function on
a daily basis.
