I am blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of a mission to help build the first Hope Lodge outside of the United States! Above & Beyond Caner is partnering with the American Cancer Society to help build the first Hope Lodge in Nairobi, Kenya. A Hope Lodge offers cancer patients and their caregivers a free place to stay since many have travelled long distances from their homes to seek treatment. This allows them one less thing to worry about and gives them space to rest and recover as needed. In Kenya, treatment locations are scarce and travelling to receive treatment may be the only choice people have.
Another part of this journey we’ll be taking is hiking and summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro. Together as a team, we cancer survivors and caregivers will link arms, face a challenge with difficult circumstances head on, and hopefully come away with encouragement and a renewed sense of purpose in each of our lives. Facing challenges with our health or physical limitations often pushes us beyond what we think we are capable of handling or doing. I’m excited to tackle this together!
I would love to have you join my support team as we travel to Africa. You will be helping me give back to men and women who are facing the tragedy of cancer, helping build a center to provide care and respite to those desperately needing it. Your support will bring encouragement to my teammates and those I meet, and help us reach new heights of what we’re capable of. Any money that is raised beyond what is needed for my goal will go directly to the Hope Lodge.
