LEW'S STORY:  Commitment To  Compassion

 

Lew Aldridge

Lew Aldridge is one of Project Transition's most gracious and committed donors. Lew was inspired to help Project Transitions' mission after seeing so many loved ones affected by HIV/AIDS. 

 

"I spent too many times in the house with people in their final days. I remember particularly John Caldwell. He was a fighter, and he didn't take HIV/AIDS lying down" Lew said.

 

Lew's history with Project Transitions stretches back nearly 25 years ago when Carolyn Crompton donated the house for Doug's House-- our hospice care facility. 

 

"At that time, there really was no place where people could be at home while they battled the final stages of AIDS. My only thought was God bless everyone involved in this," Lew said. 

 

Project Transitions spends $300 per day, per patient to provide hospice care. We simply couldn't achieve our mission without the support of people like Lew. 

 

"My hope for the future is that HIV becomes treated like any other virus, a vaccine will be widely available. And I hope we can eventually please begin to forget this epidemic," Aldridge said.
