My 8th grade class at school is adopting Hope Lodge our service project this year. My hope is that you will consider donating to this great place.
Hope Lodge provides housing free of charge on a first-come, first served basis to cancer patients and their caregivers during their course of treatment. This location is also easily accessible to other healthcare facilities and treatment centers within the immediate vicinity. We do not ask income qualifying questions because we feel that everyone deserves access to cancer care regardless of income. There are so many factors involved in the financial burden of cancer than what can be determined by looking at someone’s income statement or tax return. For example, even for someone who receives a moderate income, a cancer diagnosis that will require a six-week treatment regimen at a medical facility 65 miles from home, paying for lodging; transportation and meals is a formidable cost. The Hope Lodge not only reduces this financial burden, but also provides a much-needed support network in a clean, safe and comfortable environment.
