Notes From Our Guests
"We can never begin to thank you enough fro allowing us to stay with you while we are UAMS. Such a trying time for us with worrying about where we were going to stay. You took away some of the stress allowing us to stay at your beautiful facility. Everyone was so kind and caring. God is doing amazing things and moving mountains."
"This home has been a true God send and miracle to us. We can’t express our gratitude enough."
"I just want to say what a wonderful experience I had. This is from Dec 16th 2019 until Feb 18th 2020. Ronnie was very helpful and everything was always clean and neat. I could rave on and on. At a life altering experience in my life I was surely blessed with the Family Home. Thank you"
"When my doctor said I needed to come here, I said, ‘I can’t.’ And if we had to pay $40 or $50 a night to stay in a motel, we couldn’t do it. But the Family Home has been just like my home. There’s a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room where you can sit and watch TV, and a big dining room. I’ve really enjoyed it, even though I’m here for my sickness. We’ve met people from all over the world, and everyone has been so friendly. Nobody’s running around here with long faces. You think you’ve got problems, but then you see somebody else and you want to pray for them. It makes you realize you’re not the only one. You can talk about your problems, and you really connect like family. When you help somebody else, it makes you feel good. It makes you think you’re here for a reason, not just for your treatment.”
"Dear Friends who will be staying in this room, have no worries. Pope John II always said, ‘Be not afraid. your faith will carry you through.’ You have already been blessed by being in the Family Home. And it is just that. A home away from home. People share their food and you will find all that you need here. Run out of toothpaste. They have it. Had an accident. There are washers across the hall that cost nothing and all cleaning and soap is provided. You are in the best place possible if you are sick. It is warm and kind here. It is restful so you can concentrate on getting well. Laughing helps. I do watch videos to make me laugh. It is the best medicine. I hope all who stay here realize what a gift this place is. It is really a home! Get to know everyone. Sharing stories takes away from your own hurt. You can always learn something too. Go to knitting, bingo, welcome meetings on Wednesdays. Everything together helps. I thank God every day this home is here for us. I hope that after you place your faith in Jesus that you will put some faith in this home and your ability to help yourself."
"I was so blessed to find this place when my son was placed in ICU and I had no place to go. It has been a Godsend and I have felt his presence. It’s a place of home and I am so grateful it was here in my time of need. My son is now in remission and spending time at home so I am leaving this room to someone else. I hope they will find the same peace and hope that I found here."
"We were so grateful to have found this place. Our social worker from the Cancer Center, Harold Reed, was the one who had asked to come here. I would like to thank him. The room is clean and you could not ask for anything else. I enjoy being here and would like to thank Harold Reed very much in our time of need and maybe we will call back again. Best wishes to anybody that stays here."
"This is my first time at Family Home. I can say it is a blessing to know there is a place like this here for people going through cancer treatments. It takes a lot of worry away knowing the staff here really does care. This is really a home away from home. The staff who works on weekends are so helpful and nice. I hope we get to stay here every time I come for treatments. My care giver and myself want to thank everyone here. God bless and keep you for all the wonderful things you do."
"Thank you again for my second stay at the Family Home. I thank God ever day for this home; it gave me the comfort and the kindness from the staff that I needed while being away from my family in Alabama. Thank you to everyone for all your warmth, kind words and sense of humor. I am so grateful. I pray every night for strength to make it through this journey. I know in my heart that God will carry me through."
"I thank him for blessing me to be able to have some place to stay in my struggle with my illness and the kind people here. The people here are really a joy and lift up your spirits. May God continue to bless them."
:We were so fortunate and blessed to be able to stay in this wonderful place. We are so thankful to God and all the wonderful people here. It is so quiet and clean. We were, frankly, very scared and anxious when we arrived and everyone has been so wonderful. May God truly bless each one of you. You will never know how much that we appreciate being able to stay here."
"As before, my husband and I have enjoyed our stay here. Truly, God has opened doors for the burden to be lifted from me. Everything that is needed here, for the patients, is supplied. Thank you Family Home, I and my husband will forever be grateful to you and your staff."
"The Family Home was a place I called home away from home. It was a place where you didn’t have to stress about anything. Within the 3 months of staying there I met so many amazing people. If it wasn’t for The Family Home I would’ve been staying at a hotel paying way more than I could afford. When I got into a financial hard time where I couldn’t pay them anymore they understood. That’s what the home is for, for people to stay there to relieve some stress off of their backs. The staff is a big reason I could stay there and be close to my daughter for as long as I did. They make sure to make the stay enjoyable and comfortable for everyone there. If I needed anything they helped with whatever they could. No words can begin to describe how much gratitude I have for the staff. I will always be thankful for them!"
"The Family Home is a warm and friendly place for recovering cancer patients to stay while they go to their appointments. My sister and I have enjoyed our stay during her recovery."
