Need a Place to Stay...
So we have some good friends up here whose son has AML. He is 6 months old, and has 3 older siblings (all girls). They live in Provo right now, but they need to find a place to stay in Salt Lake while their son undergoes chemo treatments. They're looking for a basement or as little as a studio apartment to sublet for 4 weeks at a time for about the next six months. There is the Ronald McDonald House in Salt Lake City that a lot of parents stay in, but they would need to move out at the end of every cancer treatment (they're on just about the same schedule as we are, so that would be about 5 treatments). Also, if one of their girls got as little as a runny nose, they would need to move out, which would be a huge headache logistically.
I realize this is a really large request and a huge commitment, but if any of you know of a cheap place for her husband and their children to sublet (she, like I, mostly stays at the hospital), please send an email on ASAP.
