Real Life

"Finding our your young child has severe aplastic anemia and would require a bone marrow transplant is shattering," Air Force Senior Airman Tim Johnson and his wife Sharla confided. "Staying in the Fisher House [at Wilford Hall Medical Center, Lackland Air Force, TX], we were able to share our feelings with other families experiencing similar dilemmas in their lives. They understand our fears and help answer our questions. Having these new found friends gives you hope."

Time and time again, we hear what a blessing it is to call a Fisher House home during a personal crisis. We believe a family's love is good medicine and are proud to support our military and veterans' families in time of need.

The Fisher House program is a network of 30 comfort homes, each providing a "home-away-from-home" for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. Fisher House Foundation, Inc. and many individual houses are CFC participants.
