On January 2nd, 2017, a group of cancer survivors and caregivers with Above + Beyond Cancer, in a partnership with the American Cancer Society, will head to Kenya to begin the process of building the first-ever Hope Lodge outside of the United States. A Hope Lodge offers lodging to patients and families undergoing cancer treatment, and a new Kenyatta National Hospital Hope Hostel is in great need as patients and families travel far distances to receive cancer treatment. Following the mission work at Kenyatta National Hospital the group of survivors and caregivers will travel to Tanzania as a team to summit Mount Kilimanjaro. Part mission, part inspiration, part perspiration, this journey to Africa will certainly elevate the lives of those touched by cancer to create a healthier world.
