“I arrived here on 15 October 2018 for HBOT treatments, 40 – 1.5 hour each.  Today I will finish and return home.  My stay at the (Eglin) Fisher House has been great.  The staff and facility is above and beyond anything that this old marine is used to.  May our good Lord bless this wonderful facility and staff, because they give so much love, respect and encouragement to our veterans and their families.  My 40 HBOT treatments by Dr. Zant was a blessing to me.  HBOT does wonders for PTSD, TBI and many other combat injuries.  Blast concussion was one of my main problems plus radiation burns suffered during cancer treatments, agent orange problem.  I ask God’s blessing on all who assisted me to come out a winner.”

Nick’s Birthday

Today, I spoke with Ashley, his wife and it’s one of those calls you get – she wants to honor her husband, stationed at Hurlburt, U28 pilot, she mentions all the work done by Fisher Houses and when he came home……I am thinking injured and then she says “to Dover”….where our fallen come to be honored. Sometimes bad things happen to our best. This family is blessing more military families today in honor of Nicks birthday. Say his name, remember him and his sacrifice.

“Thank you Fisher House for “better” lodging.  You are definitely a “home away from home” and much more.  Our stay with you for the past two days has been nothing less than awesome.  The services….from your friendly and welcoming staff (specifically John and Marc) to the amenities offered…is a 5-star rating.  Also, having the hospital right across the street is a plus.  We couldn’t ask for anything more as we wouldn’t want it any other way, especially during a stressful time.  Thanks again for your hospitality.”  It was signed with a huge smiley face.  I am typing with goosebumps…..the impact comfort lodging makes during a medical event, coupled with caring staff………
