I am a cancer survivor. After my treatment was completed in Bangor, I went to Burlington, Vermont’s Fletcher Allen Hospital and participated in a research study using new oral drugs taken daily. While I was there, I was fortunate enough to be able to stay at a Hope House that was very close to the hospital. It was absolutely beautiful there, and the people were so kind and helpful. They had short term guests and long term guests and all were made to feel at home. I had thought at the time that Bangor should have one of these wonderful places for people who must travel long distances, and if they ever did I would pay it forward and volunteer at the house. When Sarah’s House became a reality, I volunteered my time to help do whatever needed to be done. The people who do so much for Sarah’s House are a delight to work with! All the guests have been so appreciative, and it’s a wonderful place to be.
I am so fortunate to be able to give back to as wonderful a place as Sarah’s House.
