Clute Barrow Nelson was a happy, typical boy, the first child of Don and Phyllis Nelson of Athens, when he began having serious health problems. Physicians found an inoperable tumor in his brain, leading to an 16-month fight to save his life that took him and his family to numerous hospitals, clinics and facilities across the nation. His courage and unshakable compassion for those around him touched all of Northeast Georgia. Clute eventually lost his fight, dying peacefully at age 6, but not before inspiring many, including hundreds of friends at St. Mary’s, to work even harder on behalf of children like him. His family – Don, Phyllis and brother Arthur – kindly granted St. Mary’s permission to name our children's and pediatric services in his honor, in the hope that medical services for children in the Athens area can be enhanced and save other families some of the hardship and worry they and Clute endured.
