Thank You Anthony Melchiorri
November 28th 2014 I reached out to Anthony to see if he could send Stephaine an autograph. Both of us had spent many nights watching his show Hotel Impossible on the Travel Channel. Not only did Anthony send the autograph as you can see above, he also wrote her a letter. It was actually his letter that was the inspiration for this site. Part of that same letter also became the tagline for our site. I reached out to numerous people to try and help me motivate Stephaine in her battle with cancer. It was Anthony Melchiorri who was the first person that stepped up and it meant a lot to Stephaine.
Stephaine I think always knew that she needed a miracle to overcome what she had. I know in my heart she was more worried about all of us than herself. That's just the kind of person she was. When she got that letter from Anthony, it showed her that he is also that type of person. Somebody that never met her, a person she was a fan of, took time out of his day to make her day better. It was in December that we decided to do this site. Anthony fixes hotels and the end results makes the experience of staying in those hotels better. That was kind of our first goals with the site. Stephaine and I wanted to let people know about how they could donate, books, DVD's, toys and video games to the pediatrics unit. There is no child who wants to be in the hospital. But if they had to, we wanted to make it a little better for them. As time went on our list of goals for the site got bigger. After Stephaine passed away on April 11th 2015 I decided to turn our site into a non profit charity. Even with the changes I have made to the site. It was important too me that we always keep this page. Anthony is part of our team and also holds a special place in our hearts. It was his gesture that started this mission of love. That same gesture made a little girl smile at the worse possible time of her life. She went to battle with cancer armed with love and laughter everyday. Anthony was a big part of the inspiration and motivation behind that. I will always be a fan of Hotel Impossible. But I'm an even bigger fan of the person Anthony is. I could never thank him enough for all he did for Stephaine and our family.
