National Best Friends Day is coming up next week! Many patients who came to Saranac Lake for treatment developed close friendships with their fellow patients. Patients spent a year or two on average, so it was helpful and uplifting to have someone to spend time with and confide in. Hilda Mae Yeager (left) kept many photographs of herself and friends in Saranac Lake in her album.
