HAPPENINGS - January 16-22


"A Unique Quality Resale Experience"

Did you know: Facing cancer is hard. Having to travel out of town for treatment can make it even harder. Yet the American Cancer Society has a place where cancer patients and their caregivers can find help and hope when home is far away - an American Cancer Society Hope Lodge.

Each Hope Lodge offers cancer patients and their caregivers a free place to stay when their best hope for effective treatment may be in another city. Not having to worry about where to stay or how to pay for lodging allows guests to focus on getting well. Hope Lodge provides a nurturing, home-like environment where guests can retreat to private rooms or connect with others. Every Hope Lodge also offers a variety of resources and information about cancer and how best to fight the disease.

Currently, there are more than 30 Hope Lodge locations throughout the United States. Accommodations and eligibility requirements may vary by location. Please call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 for more information.
