What being a part of Fisher House means… our house staff, Guest Hospitality Chere’ York

“Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” – Harry Truman.

This quote is one I remember from middle school. It has always instilled and inspired me to give back whenever I can. I was familiar with similar houses because of my sister using the Ronald McDonald house when my nephew was born with a tumor on his lung. After his medical condition was treated, I started doing so much research on that house and similar missions. It was like a match made in heaven when I saw a position open at the fisher house. I come from a medical background, but knew my heart was in for something more specifically directed to a more individualized way to give back. I remembered that quote and knew I had to be a part of this! I have spent many hours on duty and off advocating and spreading awareness of the house and the mission. The future was and still is unsure and not promised but I couldn’t pick a better place to call my second home!
