A DREAM COME TRUE!
FAYE'S HOUSE IS A REALITY!
“Open House” on Sunday, October 13th from 1:00pm - 4:00pm. Faye’s House 7912 E Woodland Park Drive, Spokane. Guests will be able to tour the home and see what their support has provided. Refreshments will be served.
Because There Is Hope, a local nonprofit organization founded by Melody Biehl, a breast cancer survivor, offers lodging to cancer patients coming to Spokane for treatment. Since 2009, Because There is Hope has placed at least 60 patients in host homes with community volunteers who have opened their home to patients. Although this has provided a temporary solution, Melody’s dream has always been to have a home of their own for patients and their caregiver. “Faye’s House” would be a “Home away from Home”. The guest would have their own room and access to the rest of the house. This would provide a great alternative to staying in a hotel while receiving radiation treatment for 6-8 weeks.
Melody, along with a great team of volunteers, has worked hard for 9 years to raise funds and spread the word of Because There Is Hope’s mission. Melody’s dream has finally become a reality. On August 21st, Because There Is Hope took possession of a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, furnished home. There is room for 3 guests at any given time along with their caregiver.
If you would like to make a contribution to the home to create a better experience for residents , Faye’s House is registered at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond for household items. Donations can be delivered to our business office in north Spokane prior to the event. We are located at 4711 N. Maple in the Farmers Insurance office. Please contact Melody Biehl at (509) 939-9672 for information and directions to the house.
