Because of the flu, three of our military moms went into labor early since January of this year, one at 26 weeks. The family was medically evacuated to Sacred Heart in Pensacola, and because of you, Dad remained close, staying at a partner hotel. The first time we received an update, it was bleak. Many weeks later, the roller coaster for this family has a happy ending and the baby who is almost up to 5 pounds, is trying out his car seat and will be released soon. The family, intact, they will be heading home to begin their new life.

Words from our Guests
"I am so grateful to be able to stay here. My niece was injured really bad in a car accident and family needed to be here. I jumped on a plane with no clue where I would sleep when I arrived. God opened all doors and made a way, then Fisher House did the rest. Thank you so much and may God bless you all." - February 9, 2018
" My daughter and son-in-law had a scheduled C-section on Monday. I wanted to be close and packed my bag with the thought that I would sleep in labor and delivery waiting room. My son-in-law contacted the Fisher House and secured me a room and what a blessing the Fisher House has been. It has been so convenient!  We enjoyed the board games, corn hole and the library, snacked while playing. The house is amazing, down to every detail! I had the pleasure to spend time with the staff; Marc, Don and Judy were so welcoming! This would be a wonderful place to volunteer or work! Thanks again for helping me be comfortable welcoming my granddaughter!
