The House That Love Built®
Anyone who has ever waited for a loved one in surgery or in an emergency room can get a glimpse of the anguish a family feels when they have traveled miles from home to stand vigil for hours, days, weeks, and even months while their seriously ill or injured child receives treatment. So imagine what former Philadelphia Eagles football player Fred Hill and his wife went through in 1974 when their three year old daughter Kim was being treated for cancer.
The Hills camped out on hospital benches, sat in cramped waiting rooms and paced the halls for more than three years during Kim’s treatments. They also watched and took note of many other families experiencing the same stress and tension over their child’s illness, compounded by the physical fatigue and mental exhaustion caused by uncomfortable surroundings and exacerbated by the constant activity of the hospital.
