Welcome to the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in Kansas City. We understand that undergoing treatment for cancer can be both financially and emotionally overwhelming. In an effort to ease the burden of cancer, the American Cancer Society provides free housing to cancer patients traveling to Kansas City for treatment.
Finding emotional and social support from other survivors can be as important as getting the proper medical care. At Hope Lodge, patients live with other patients going through similar experiences and are supported by caring staff and volunteers. The nurturing, comfortable environment provided to patients during their stay allows them to focus on what is most important—fighting cancer!
Hope Lodge is also a place to learn about cancer and how best to fight the disease. Guests have access to the American Cancer Society's 24-hour toll-free call center, Web site, and comprehensive on-site libraries full of information. Guests are welcome to utilize or participate in any of the American Cancer Society on-site programs and services such as Look Good...Feel Better and free wigs/head coverings. At Hope Lodge, cancer patients and their loved ones are armed with the vital information to help them make informed decisions.
