I spent a month at the Miracle House, while my sister was being treated for cancer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital. We came from Florida where the surgery she needed was unavailable, we went to Miracle House for housing. As far as housing, it was a wonderful alternative to hotels. Each apartment has 3 bedrooms with a patient and care taker in each room. When you think all you need is a place to lay your head at night, it's perfect. Gives you a local address and phone number. Internet access in each apartment, a well stocked kitchen, laundry facilities in the building. The things I didn't expect was all the support from the other patients and caretakers. In addition to this, there were meals! Every morning the group is met by a volunteer that takes us to breakfast. Volunteers are a fount of information about the city and traveling through NYC. HOPE was what I learned the most about. I learned a lot that summer. I am eternally grateful to the staff and the volunteers of Miracle House as well as the staff at the West Bank.
