Second Wind the name says a lot. But what some do not know is the way they go out of their way to ensure that each person has a safe and comfortable stay when they have dr appts which include overnight stays, sedations that come along with ct's and PET scans, not to mention starting new meds that require one to be close to the hospital. Some people do not understand that the cost itself to stay overnight in a hotel can become expensive, but for transplant families as well as for families with any illness that are in hospitals 3, 4, 5 or more times monthly. Second Wind helps to take the burdens off these families and gives them someone they can ask for help when the time arises. Thank You Second Wind!!
