BENEFITING: MAINE MEDICAL CENTER
The staff at Maine Medical Center in Portland, ME at the Special Care Unit was more helpful, caring, and professional than could ever have been hoped for. Watching and waiting while the love of your life dies before you is the worst experience a person can endure. While the hospital did provide a private quiet room across the hall to gather and wait, the furniture was only comfortable for a few hours. Shane Richardson was all about being comfortable and would have loved to have friends and families able to lean back and relax during a tough time, so the family is raising money to purchase a recliner for the family waiting room outside SCU#3. The next family in crisis will be able to catch a bit of rest while staying right there.
