Bill Stephens, Fisher House Foundation, Fisher House discussed on Rich Zeoli
Station and Fisher house foundation. My husband is Bill Stephens. And he was in the army in Virginia. He was released in nineteen Fifty-three after two years of service. And he we were married and moved to Minnesota where he is from. But at the present time, I'm living in the Shenandoah valley in new market for junior. He was having a problem with his mitral valve leaking. And he came here to have a procedure done that's called a micro, Val clip and. It was successful in a way, but gradually started leaking again. And when he had that fixed it was in December, and we were here for a couple of weeks. That's a Fisher house, and we were released on December fifteen and gradually through these preceding months, he got worse and worse as far as the valve leaking. And so he came here a month ago to have open heart surgery to repair his Lavalle, Venice heart. He has had some complications from his surgery. We have been here. It's five weeks. I think today he's progressing now doing better. And so we're looking forward to when he can go home. That's surely stebbins describing the stebbins family military story, and what the Fisher house has meant to them. Oh. It's been a real comfort because we're from we live in the country and the traffic here would be so difficult to find a motel and then to be able to afford a motel after you've found it. We have had food here. You can it's so many things they've given us and also you can wash clothes they have every thing you could possibly want here to help you. Plus they have programs. We did a painting class. We they have making jewellery kind of the class. She has programs just periodically to take your mind off of you know, your problems. I can't think of a thing that they haven't thought of you know, we it's just everything you need is here. Plus, everyone is very friendly. And we've been here a month and. We've gotten to know everybody in.
