After losing two family members to cancer within eight months of each other I decided to go visit Moments House and see what this cancer support place was all about. I walked in to a warm, inviting, home like place. I was greeted by the co-founder of Moments House and she explained to me about her dream and what she wanted to accomplish. I knew what my family members went through and how hard it was for the entire family and their friends. That day I entered Moments House I knew I wanted to be able to give back and help a cancer patient, their caregiver, family and friends. Cancer not only affects the person who is ill but those all around them. Moments House is there to help each and everyone that is affected by cancer. Some of the things they do are rides to treatments, settling someone after a hospital stay, activities to help them have fun and think of something besides their illness, support group meetings for patients and family members, beauty products like wigs, scarves and many more things to help ease some of the pain and discomfort of being ill. Home made blankets for chemo treatments and inspirational notes on hand painted rocks. They are there if someone needs to come in for a talk, a shoulder to cry on, or just to come in for a visit and a cup of coffee. Sometimes it's the little things that help brighten someone's day even for just a "moment". If you, a family member or friend is diagnosed with cancer Moments House is a place to go for comfort, answers to questions you may have or to be guided in the right direction to get the best answers or help you may need. We need help from everyone to keep this dream alive so that " No one faces cancer alone" and we can continue to help as many people as we can!
