THE STORY:

Joe's House is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization that was created by Ann W Calahan in memory of her late husband Joe. Joe battled cancer for six years, having treatment in Texas and New York. Finding a suitable place to stay was a challenge and after Joe's death in 1997 Ann vowed to find a way to help others in the same situation. In 2003 Joe's House website launched and fulfilled that promise.

Joe's House website lists thousands of places to stay across the country near hospitals and treatments centers that offer a discount for traveling patients and their loved ones.

Every day more than 3,500 people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer. Many must travel to cancer centers specializing in their particular treatment needs. Combined with the millions who are already fighting this disease, it means tens of thousands of cancer patients every day throughout the United States are looking for a suitable place to stay.

Joe's House website offers a consolidated accommodations list that caters to cancer patients, their families, and caregivers. Some of our lodging options accept any patient regardless of illness.

Please help us keep Joe's House running.
