Review for David's House, Inc., Lebanon, NH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was born 2 months early. During the 5 months he stayed in the NICU (ICN) we stayed at Davids House. We live 2 hours north and Davids House saved us, time, money and wear & tear on us. Minutes from the Hospital was a God send- it allowed us to be able to help to care for our son and our other kids could come and visit/stay with us. It was a safe haven for them while their brother took most of our time and attention. The staff and volunteers were caring and understanding.Gabriel returned monthly for stays to see his doctors the next day in clinc. We and all his medical equipment( vent, oxygen, suction machine etc) have been welcomed with open arms and never ever any stares or unkind words.. We also stayed there exactly 8 mos after checking out of Davids House from the NICU for another 4 mos - during my sons Leukemia stay. He was diagnosed at one year old with AML m-7. During that stay he almost lost his his battle and the staff/volunteers were so kind. We to this day need to call and ask for a room and we truely feel apart of a family. Thankyou to all who support this home away from home.

Review for Give Kids The World, Kissimmee, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was 2 1/2 years old when we stayed a week at Give kids the World. We had no idea what to expect , other than hearing it was a magical place. My son and his 3 siblings had a blast. It far exceeded our expectations. All our kids were treated as VIPS. Not once did anyone stare or show us pitty. Our son and all of us - were treated as a normal/typical family- no stares, no pitty. They enjoyed every twist and turn and couldn't wait to see what the next day offered. My husband and I were so greatful for all the donors and volunteers that support this place. We did not relaize til we were there how much this magical place helped heal out family. It was the best medicane our family could have asked for. To this day- once a month we do Ice Cream for Breakfest and talk about our trip in November 2011. We so want to go back and visit someday and volunteer. Thankyou to everyone who helped to make my son/families dreams magical. My 2 1/2 year old was granted his wish because, he has Down Syndrome, a trach, o2, vent, gtube and was literally at deaths door from AML M-7 Leukemia- all by the age of 1. He was not able to finish chemo due to Acute Respitory distress syndrome. Thank God his remission is currently holding and we noticed a turn around in his health AFTER our trip to GKTW.
