Testimonial from Carolyn Nelson, mother of long-time patient Josh Nelson:
"I just wanted to tell you that this is one of the greatest things you guys could do for us," said Carolyn. "Wow, it is so beautiful and welcoming. The volunteers have been wonderful, and the computer access is fabulous."
"One thing I disliked about being in the hospital was being disconnected from paying bills, checking my email and getting stuff done on the computer that I do at home. Now it is all right here! Thank you for having such a wonderful space for us. It makes me even more proud to say that we are affiliated with Cardinal Glennon. I don't think people realize what a true gem we have right here in our midst..."
