Terry’s House offers comfort, support at home-away-from-home

For 10 years, Graciela Mesa and Jose Cordero tried to have a child. The joy they experienced after finally conceiving was cut short when their baby was born prematurely at Fresno’s Community Regional Medical Center.

While baby Armida grew stronger in the NICU, Graciela and Jose grew wary of driving more than an hour each way from their home in Earlimart. That’s when they learned about a home-away-from-home right across the street from the hospital. See what it means to their family.
