Just wanted to share why I am proud to be a board member of Miles For Hope. My wife, Christine A. Swingle contracted a glioblastoma multiforma which was diagnosed on March 5th, 2012. She lived 87 days and went to her reward on May 30th, 2012. She served as an outstanding RN since graduation in 1971 from the Gordon Keller School of Nursing attached at that time to Tampa General Hospital. I found Miles for Hope too late to help her during her illness and passing; however, Debbie Turner, the Executive Director, was very compassionate and shared information about the tumor which I had not heard from her doctors.
Her efforts and work encouraged me and opened a door for me to help other persons experiencing the same tragedic experiences as a small tribute to the love of my Life, my Christine.
So I would encourage person, family, doctor or other professional working in this arena of medicine and health care to consider learning more about Miles for Hope, making contributions and volunteering. We will be very grateful for all support and do our best to be good stewards over such gifts, whether they be monetary or voluntary.
