American Cancer Society Hope Lodge
Where Hope Lives ...
Giving Hope a Home
"The Hope Lodge was a real lifesaver..." - A Hope Lodge guest
"We live over 100 miles away and there was no way we could have afforded my treatments, plus hotel, gas, and food expenses. My wife and I made it through this battle because Hope Lodge and the American Cancer Society were there for me."
- A cancer survivor
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 families can find help and hope when home is far away - an American Cancer Society Hope Lodge.
Each Hope Lodge offers cancer patients and their families a free, temporary 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 Hope Lodge guests to focus on the most important thing: getting well.
And a Hope Lodge offers so much more than just free lodging. It provides a nurturing, home-like environment where patients and caregivers can retreat to private rooms or connect with others who are going through many of the same experiences.
"Hope Lodge is a place filled with love and support from strangers who quickly become family." – A guest of Hope Lodge in Atlanta, Georgia
Every Hope Lodge also offers a variety of resources and information about cancer and how best to fight the disease. There is access to the American Cancer Society's 24-hour toll-free call center and Web site, as well as a comprehensive on-site library designed to help patients and caregivers make informed decisions.
Simply put, Hope Lodge is a place created to ease the burden of cancer treatment - a place where we give hope a home.
