Tara’s House 2019: Fully Furnished Home For Mayo Clinic Stem Cell Transplant Patient And Family In Rochester, MN
Tara’s Place and Serenity House Network,
Tara’s Place played an important role in Steve’s treatment and recovery during his donor related stem cell transplant.
His entire treatment was done in an outpatient setting. After hours were spent at the clinic and hospital virtually everyday. Coming home to Tara’s Place gave us a sense of normal in an entirely abnormal situation.
As the caregiver, I quickly learned I needed a sense of “normal” in my life too. I was able to cook and bake, do laundry and even clean (Ha). All of these activities would not have been possible if we had stayed at other lodging options.
Steve was able to go through his treatment and recovery in a relaxed home environment. The quiet country location was very enjoyable. We were able to watch all sorts of wildlife right outside the big picture window.
Several family members and friends were able to visit and even spend the night as they came to support us both.
The opportunity to reside here for 140 days has been God’s blessing. We will forever be grateful!
Prayers and God’s Blessing to everyone involved in this wonderful SHN ministry!
