Email Newsletter December 2015

The newsletter for December 2015 is as follows:

Judith and Evelyn express their thanks for the kindness shown to them by their hosts.

“I can’t stress enough how this organization helps plug a significant gap in our ability to provide care to patients from a distance and I am thrilled that this relationship is growing.”

Gregory Garber

Director of Oncology Support Services, Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University

“Your program provides a much-needed resource for patients who have challenging medical conditions and their families, and it has benefited our patients tremendously.”

Melinda Parisiu

Program Director, University Medical Center of Princeton, Center for Eating Disorders

“Dr. Carol Shields of the Oncology Service is world-renowned and a leading specialist in the treatment and management of retinoblastoma, the most common eye cancer in children. Desperate families travel to Wills Eye Hospital to try to save their child’s life. We immediately call HOSTS for HOSPITALS for lodging these children and their families.”

David Lashinsky

Practice Administrator, Wills Eye Hospital

“HOSTS for HOSPITALS has been an amazing resource for us and our families over the years. We recently had a young couple who were pregnant with their first child who was diagnosed with Spina Bifida. They were placed within a day and were greatly relieved to be in a home outside of the city (they were from a rural area) where they would have privacy and peace to recover from fetal surgery.”
