A Tangible Way to Say "Thank You for Your Service"
Join me in making a true difference in the lives of service members, veterans, and their families. I am raising funds and awareness for Fisher House, an amazing organization that supports military families at their greatest time of need - during hospitalization for unexpected injury or illness.
Patriotic and grateful citizens publicly thank service members at airports and train stations across the country, but sometimes these thoughtful, kind words are just not enough. A simple "thank you," although greatly appreciated by travel-weary troops, doesn't come close to meeting the physical, emotional, and often, financial needs of an injured or ill service member, veteran, or family member being treated at a hospital far from home. That's where Fisher House comes in.
Fisher Houses provide "a home away from home," a warm and welcoming place, where families can stay and support their loved ones at no cost while the patient receives specialized medical care at a military or VA medical center. These homes allow families to be together to focus on what's most important - the healing process.
Because of donors like you, Fisher House reached a significant milestone this year - 60 houses in operation! But the needs of service members, Veterans, and their families continue to grow, and the Foundation strives to meet this challenge all across the country. Our construction projects in 2013 include:
