"My four year old niece, Anna, has advanced brain cancer. I am 27 years old at the time, laying in a hospital bed, blood being drawn from one arm, going through a centrifuge to extract platelets, and being pushed backed into my other arm. When the blood re-enters my body it has cooled and despite the summer heat and humidity, I am freezing, covered in a blanket. Anna's parents, my sister a secretary at the local electric utility, and brother-in-law a policeman walking a beat in inner-city Philadelphia, lives are in chaos. Their other two daughters are struggling with the day-to-day of life as their parents spend their time and money tending to Anna. They are emotionally and financially drained, what little money they have goes to hospital bills and keeping up is a challenge. I am frustrated as I watch them struggle ... their marriage suffers. I am a graduate student and the only thing I can offer is the platelets coursing through my veins. Anna needs the platelets to fight off the devastating effects of the massive doses of radiation and chemo she is receiving. So I give as frequently and as much as the doctors will allow me to give. If only Opens Doors had been available to help families like Anna's."
"I have experienced first hand, the healing power of family and the importance of a family's presence when an ailing child has to endure the unimaginable challenges of hospitalizations, curative treatments, and surgeries. My older brother was born with a congenital heart defect that required extensive hospital stays and countless surgeries for the duration of his life. My family was fortunate enough to have the financial means to always be present and provide my brother with love and support. Open Doors Foundation has recognized the importance of family and was created to provide assistance to families in need of financial assistance so they too can be with their loved ones in times of need."
"Our industry is focused on promoting families and their desire to build security and wealth through homeownership. When families experience unexpected hardships, whether it be health or financial, we want to help. That's what Opens Doors is all about. We are in it together."
