2 Fisher Houses open in Kingsbridge Heights for veterans, family

Posted: Updated:
KINGSBRIDGE HEIGHTS -

For nearly 30 years, the Fisher House Program has provided a home away from home for veteran patients and their families and now, the accommodations will be available in the Bronx.

Two years ago, twins Gerrold and Paul Oser thought they might lose each other forever when Gerrold suddenly fell severely ill.

The Fisher House provided a place to stay for Paul while Gerrold received treatment for his heart condition. At that time, the Fisher House in Albany was the only place in the state that offered the kind of services they needed.

Now, two Fisher Houses are available in Kingsbridge Heights.
