Rachel's House


The main goal of Share Her Smile is to open and maintain a facility in the Charleston, SC area, close to the campus of MUSC, strictly for transplant patients and their caregivers. This facility, "Rachel's House," will provide a quiet, relaxing, affordable "home away from home" to those being evaluated for or undergoing the transplant process. By offering such a facility, the patients' emotional and financial stress levels are reduced during an already demanding journey. They will also be in the company of others in their same situation, and will be able to provide strength and comfort to each other, in what could be an unfamiliar city far from other family. Area hotels simply are not prepared, nor operated in a manner to accommodate the needs of the transplant patient.
