Fitz lived in a tent for 17 years. Everyone knew him. He was always the life of the party. He had found all of the ways to take care of his basic needs and make a true home in the camp. He got around by bike and utilized the pantries and the free clinics. One day his neighbors noticed that he hadn’t been out and about. They checked on him and found him unconscious in his tent. After several weeks in the hospital and with a new diagnosis of COPD, the doctor’s orders were that he needed to be inside where climate control and electricity for his new medical equipment could give him an easier life. He didn’t think he could leave his friends and his way of life, but once he moved in and got situated, he realized that many of his new neighbors were his old neighbors from the camp.
