"Once again, I say goodbye to the Hope Lodge. This has been my fourth visit here and room 311 is absolutely my favorite. It's just my size and faces south. I see acres of lawn, trees and the duck pond. The that takes my breath away is the sky. Thank you for providing a safe place to celebrate life with family and friends. I will always be greatful." - Donna Mains

"Being able to stay at the Hope Lodge was an answer to our prayers. Not having to travel 120 miles each day for four and a half weeks of radiation made our weekdays stress-free.

It meant more to us than you'll ever know." - Ed and Jane Lower
