donations. The Fisher House Foundation will match the funds raised to finish the new home.

"We have a solemn obligation to help this new generation of service members to heal from the scars of battle, both seen and unseen," Senator Kerry said. "And we have a solemn obligation to support them - and to support their families as they make the difficult transition back to life at home. The mission of Fisher House is about keeping a sacred promise. It is about love of country. And it is about protecting those who have risked their lives to protect ours."

"Many of our patients travel from the furthest points in New England to receive the special care and rehabilitation offered by VA Boston Healthcare System, with family members often incurring hefty expenses to be by their side," said Michael Lawson, Director of the VA Boston Healthcare System. "In the not too distant future, we will be opening the doors to the Fisher House Boston, and in doing so we will relieve these families of an enormous burden and allow them to focus on helping their loved ones to heal."

About Fisher Houses and the Fisher House Foundation

More than 10,000 families are helped each year in the 42 Fisher Houses nationwide. The Fisher House Foundation has asked that family members of hospitalized active duty service members and veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OEF/OIF) be given high priority for lodging at Fisher Houses. Fisher Houses and the Fisher House Foundation play a crucial role in helping veterans recover from the serious wounds they have suffered. Fisher Houses enable family members to be close to their loved ones during hospitalization and gives them a safe, comfortable, home-like environment, making it easier for them to participate in the care and recovery of their loved ones.
