HOSPITALITY HOMES OF CLEVELAND
June 15, 2011

I'm Robert's wife Kate.

Four months after I married the love of my life, my husband, Robert suffered from an aortic dissection (at the age of 35).
Our world would forever be changed.
Robert went through several operations at Jewish Hospital in Louisville, KY to save his life from the initial event; as well as, further complications.
By late summer that year - he was still in the hospital with unresolved issues, which could only be solved by more surgery.
With the blessings and encouragement from our medical "family" - we sought out the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio for treatment options.
Where was I going to stay while Robert was in ICU? We had little funds and knew no one in Cleveland.
Our hometown church, Centenary Methodist, (where Robert and I were married) contacted the Methodist church in Cleveland.
Within days of arriving at the Cleveland Clinic, I was connected with Hospitality Homes of Cleveland, which offered low cost accomodations.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was in a safe, peaceful place - my second home and added to our ever expanding "family".

Ways to make it better...

There is nothing I would change. I continue to spread the word about this wonderful organization and am thrilled to see Louisville, Kentucky is providing a similar service for out-of-town families and patients to our renowned medical facilities.

But how where we to get there, much less get back?
I was allowed to ride up in the ambulance with Robert, but did not know how long we would be at the Clinic. After three weeks in Cleveland I needed to get home to my 5 year old daughter (who was staying with family).
A good friend, Debra Oates (her husband a former pilot), suggested I call Angel Flights.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By the grace of God and the humanity of the volunteer pilots of this organization, I was given "wings" to fly back and forth between Cleveland and Kentucky at no cost. Lord knows we could not afford any other options and only had one vehicle which would not have withstood the multiple trips, much less the cost of gas.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I cannot think of any changes or concerns about this organization. In fact, I have tried to spread the word about Angel Flights for others we've met in our journey.
