Paula Huber, cancer survivor with her husband
Paula Huber, from Gainesville, Florida-

Many years ago I started a poetry publishing company called “Yes Press” – many years before I was diagnosed with metastatic cancer and given a 15% chance of 5-year survival just like my father who succumbed to the disease in 1979. I decided to say “no” to the prognosis and “Yes” to fighting. Part of that fight involved traveling from my home in Florida to New York City’s Sloan Kettering where I felt their treatment protocol for my cancer was the best, cutting-edge treatment in the world and would give me the best chance for survival. The logistics were daunting. But I found Hope Lodge. And it has made the difference. Hope Lodge helped me realize the “yes” to fighting this disease. How ironic that as a poet, I cannot find words enough to express how deeply appreciative I am for the love, solace, safety, and hope that Hope Lodge has blessed me with. After 8 and a half years of surgeries, chemotherapy, several complications, and ongoing treatment, I am NED (no evidence of disease). Hope Lodge has been an integral part of my long-term survival – my home and sanctuary where I’ve made lifelong friends and positive memories. My gratitude to Hope Lodge is immeasurable. My experience here has been a blessing in this scary city and within this terrifying journey. Hope Lodge embodies my “yes” to fighting for life.

Guest & Visitor Comments

”This is our second stay at Hope Lodge, NYC, and again we are overwhelmed by the generosity and compassion shown us.
My husband, Dennis, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.  After months of chemo,he went into remission, but then needed a stem cell transplant.  This was arranged through the cancer center, and we were told his hospital stay could be up to 4 weeks.  Then we were offered the option of having the procedure as an ‘outpatient,’ if I were able to be with him as caregiver.
Hope Lodge made this possible.  Without the generosity of your facility, the financial burden of staying in NYC would have been very great.  Besides lifting the financial burden, even more important were the emotional benefits of not having to be in the hospital while receiving treatment. Thank you with all our hearts.” - Alexis & Denis - Phillipsburg, New Jersey

“We can’t begin to express how pleased and supported we feel with all that has been done to make our stay here so comfortable and convenient.  We were especially impressed with the way our ‘emergency’ was handled by the night manager and of course, by the NYPD Emergency Service.  It was all handled so professionally and with such genuine concern for my wife.

Your facility is certainly a blessing for the visitor, and a great financial relief from what could have been an overwhelming expense.  We can’t thank you all enough. We continue to be very optimistic about my wife’s future, being under the care of the great doctors and staff offered by the cancer center, and by the fine support provided by the aptly-named Hope Lodge.” - James - Vestal, New York

“When I learned that I would have to find a place to stay in NYC for 28 days in order to participate in a clinical trial, it was devastating.  I knew no one in NYC and had just learned that my health insurance was not going to cover the cost of the radiation part of the trial.  These were huge obstacles to overcome and they almost forced me to cancel my trip.  When we learned we could stay at Hope Lodge it was like a miracle.  But I have to say that the relief of the financial burden has far been outweighed by the value of the care and support and kindness of the staff and fellow cancer patients.

If you have been a donor, please know that your generosity has made a positive difference in my life.  If you are considering making a donation please know your contribution will be well spent.  Thank you." - Pat - California
