"When my husband was diagnosed with cancer and undergoing chemotherapy treatments, the volunteers at Silver Liming were there for us like no one else. They put together a chemo bag to prepare us for days spent in the infusion lab, activated a meal train with dinners tailored to his tastes, and even came by to decorate the outside of our house for Christmas. We were on lockdown during the holidays due to his stem cell transplant, which comprised his immunity and kept us housebound. The love and support provided brought light to some very dark days. Silver Liming volunteers are angels!" - Gail N.
