Room 111 – October 26. “Dear Marc, Donnie and Judy, Thanks so much for allowing us to stay here at the Fisher House. We appreciate all your collective kindness, it’s wonderful to have this facility available so close to this hospital.” Meet Donnie, aka Don Peckham, asst manager since our house opened in 2010. He and I had matching TEAM Fisher House shirts today!-
“I am not sure where to begin, but I am completely appreciative of the support of the Fisher House. This month has been unimaginable in both good and bad ways. The Fisher House did more than provide a place for me to stay. The option of staying possibly, more than likely, contributed to saving my life. So thank you for providing a safe place for me to stay and providing other necessities as well. I enjoyed meeting all staff and guests. I send what you gave to me, warm hugs and good vibes. Thank you so much.”-
Sharing words from one of our non-medical attendants regarding our care of one of our guests…..who agrees that the trend to accept mediocre and applaud exceptional needs to change?
“It’s been a pleasure to know you as well; you get it done and I respect that. No one seems to just get it done anymore. This experience has been amazing and has given me a whole new perspective on Fisher house and what you guys do (which I’ll admit I’ve never had first-hand experience with). Absolutely stellar stuff. I’m very comfortable leaving (my guest) here knowing this will be the right place for her to recover and you guys have her back. ”
Always have someone’s back and make a difference in some small way every day……-

“Thank you so much for being here while my son is in ICU due to health serious issues. He is special needs and can’t communicate so I can’t tell you how much this place means to me. Having a place to come and rest, wash clothes at night and a place to lay my head – I never worried I was bringing any kind of unclean things to him. Thank you for being there.”-
“Fisher House is awesome. It was amazing to have this beautiful place to stay. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher will never know the people they touched. From the time we walked in the door until 4 days later when we left, all you could do was feel the love of residents and staff. Everyone had a reason for being here and we shared our fears and hope of recovery. Thank you for providing a loving environment during a trying time.”-
“I am so grateful to be able to stay here. My niece was injured really bad in a car accident and family needed to be here. I jumped on a plane with no clue where I would sleep when I arrived. God opened all doors and made a way, then Fisher House did the rest. Thank you so much and may God bless you all.”-
