Henry had just celebrated his first birthday when doctors discovered a sizeable mass on his brain. He was swiftly airlifted from the hospital in his hometown of Fresno to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. Shortly after, Henry’s parents, Taylor and Daniel, were shocked and devastated to learn their baby had brain cancer.
"Family House made it so that the only thing we had to focus on was our baby, which is amazing," said Henry’s mom, Taylor, as she recalled their first experience at Family House.
Taylor and Daniel were overwhelmed with gratitude to have a place to stay close to the hospital, where they could find comfort and emotional support, when Henry began his first chemotherapy treatment.
