As 2016 comes to a close, I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of our Good Neighbors for so kindly and generously embracing our transplant family
of guests during what was a record setting year here at Restoring Hope Transplant House.
We set guest stay records in 10 of 12 months this year and nearly doubled our guest stays from our first two years combined. We have now hosted transplant families from 33 different states, 3 other countries and all parts of Wisconsin. So many of them call downtown Middleton their home away from home during what oftentimes can be lengthy stays at the hospital caring for a loved one. There is no doubt in my mind that our caring and vibrant community is a ke
y reason why we have welcomed so many families in record numbers this year. To so many, Middleton just feels like home.
While so many of our visitors enjoy the amazing selection of nearby dining options, the scenic walks to the ponds and the kindness of our people, it is your continued financial support that also has made such a huge difference in our ability to keep these doors open. As a non-profit, Restoring Hope Transplant House depends entirely on the generosity of donors like you to make this all possible for families who absolutely need a Good Neighbor during this difficult time. We cannot thank our community and your readers enough for all they have done to help make 2016 such a memorable year for all who have passed through our doors.
Many of the health related miracles we see on a daily basis are made possible because of kindhearted individuals on the organ donor or bone marrow donor registries. Please also consider learning more about joining these lists as your efforts could one day give the ultimate gift of life to someone in need of a second chance.
