Donation of Comfort Items for Service Member Walter Reed National Military Medical (WRNMMC) Center Bethesda, Maryland January 27, 2023

Mrs. Mia Swartz, Family Support Coordinator at WRNMMC shared a request that was made by a service member.  She shared that the service member recently had major surgery and is currently receiving chemotherapy.  The items are non-medical supplies so they are not provided by the medical plan. Therefore, the Gold Star Mothers Maryland Chapter seized the opportunity to provide the items for one of our country’s Heroes.  The service member is currently recovering in special housing on base.  The mother of the service member is providing “tender loving care” and Mrs. Swartz is coordinating other support services. Janice Chance, MD Chapter mom delivered the items to Mrs. Swartz today Friday 27 January 2023 who will give the items to the service member. The MD Chapter members will continue to do whatever they are able to serve and support our Heroes and their families.
