Pledges 2014 Hoops for the Troops April 26 – 27 to Raise More Funds to Assist Military Families During Medical Crises

"A chance meeting while their volunteers worked side-by-side at the November 2013 Vietnam Moving Wall event in Aurora has resulted in Fox Valley Marines Detachment #1233 and FOFH-IL forging a partnership.

"We are delighted Fox Valley Marines has donated $5,000 toward the FOFH-IL humanitarian mission," states Betty Stamatis, FOFH-IL president. “We are further honored by their commitment to raise more funds with their annual Hoops for Troops benefit in April of 2014."

Military Families Express Heartfelt Appreciation

Fisher House is a Godsend. So many of us want to be with our family members but can’t always afford it with the cost of travel, lodging and food. Thanks to Fisher House we can!

What a blessing! The Fisher House has relieved me of so much stress. Don’t know what I would have done.

This is such a great opportunity for families of veterans affected by war and illness. It warms my heart to see the government, community, families and those who serve out nation working together for the greater good.

My grandmother and I stayed at the Fisher House to keep my father company during his long treatment/recovery… If not for this home, my father would have been a sad and lonely man.

…The Fisher House provides peace of mind for the patient as well as their family…the manager and staff are a true blessing…
