"News from the Nest"
Cancer is a devastating disease that affects everyone, not just the patient. Coping with the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and financial stresses of cancer is overwhelming. Carolyn J. Mayer, President/Founder of The Phoenix Guest House, Inc., knows this truth firsthand. She is a cancer survivor.
We look forward to the day when a cure for cancer is found. Meanwhile, The Phoenix Guest House, Inc. is here to provide free, temporary lodging, along with patient advocacy, to help alleviate the heavy burdens experienced by those on their arduous cancer journeys.
According to Egyptian mythology, every 500-600 years, The Phoenix, a colorful bird with a beautiful song, remains immortal by entering its nest, setting itself on fire to rise perpetually to a new life, born of its own ashes. Reminiscent of this immortal bird of myth, The Phoenix Guest House, Inc. provides a ‘Nest of Comfort with a Window of Care’ from which renewed, colorful lives rise from the ashes of cancer to continue their beautiful songs.
