This year, Silent Beacon celebrates Thanksgiving 2019 at the The Children’s Inn at NIH in Bethesda, Maryland. According to the Inn’s website, “The Children’s Inn at NIH is a residential ‘Place Like Home’ for families with children participating in leading-edge research studies at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland. The NIH Clinical Center is the nation’s premier biomedical research hospital. It is providing an opportunity for our residents to be partners in advancing medical discoveries. This center improving the health of people all over the world. While the NIH takes care of the child’s medical needs, The Inn tends to the child’s heart, soul and spirit.”
Depending on their child’s needs, families may be spending weeks, months, or more for treatment, procedures, and clinical trials. Some families are traveling far from home, and the Inn allows them to experience a home-like atmosphere. They provide a physically, emotionally, and spiritually difficult time. According to CEO Jennie Luca, the goal is to give families “some sense of normalcy… [and] to live in the moment and make memories now.”
Silent Beacon wants to support the Inn’s vision and mission by donating a delicious holiday lunch. So the families can experience a traditional Thanksgiving 2019 meal, even if that meal this year is away from their actual home. 35 residents and their families at the Inn will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal. They complete with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.
