About Share Her Smile
Share Her Smile is a foundation dedicated to bringing comfortable, affordable, temporary housing to out of town transplant patients and their caregivers. We know first hand how challenging it can be to find accommodations that meet the needs of a person who is not feeling well. Share Her Smile will strive to provide this environment at “Rachel’s House.” Whether preparing for testing or procedures, attending a clinic visit, or recovering from surgery, you will find a quiet, comfortable, relaxing, peaceful temporary “home away from home” at “Rachel’s House.”
Share Her Smile is founded in memory of Rachel Elizabeth Gregory, a 27 year old courageous young woman who lost her battle with liver disease while awaiting a transplant. Rachel was from Greenville, SC, and traveled approximately 3 ½ hours to meet with her transplant team at MUSC (Medical University of South Carolina) in Charleston, SC. Suites and hotels simply couldn’t provide the quiet and relaxing environment to afford Rachel the restorative sleep she required for her appointments. During each trip to Charleston Rachel would comment on how nice it would be if there was a facility just for transplant patients. It soon became her goal to build such a facility, once she became well enough. Sadly, after being on the transplant list a mere 35 days, Rachel lost her battle on February 5, 2014. She did not live to see her dream become a reality, but it is because of her courage, strength, and determination that we honor her by fulfilling her dream.
