“My experience at Gift of Life Family House is inexpressible.

I spent 42 nights there while my husband was in the hospital. The Family House is a home. When visiting my husband daily at the hospital, I would find myself telling him what time I would be going “home” that day.

When I did arrive home, I was always greeted by the smiling faces of the dedicated staff and the aromas of a home cooked meal. The rides to and from the Family House were another gift. The volunteers, many of them transplant recipients, were a source of support because they knew exactly what I was experiencing. Of course, there was also a tremendous connection that developed among the guests.

Although everyone had a different story, and we were all on different steps of the journey, it was such a comfort to share my day with people who were walking the same walk as I was.”
