American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Nationwide Supporters
Through the generosity of donors, American Cancer Society Hope Lodge facilities are able to provide free overnight lodging and support to cancer patients and their caregivers who must travel for treatment. Thanks to our supporters, patients have a place to call home and can focus on the most important thing: getting well.
The Society is very fortunate to have nationwide supporters who have helped make each Hope Lodge community a true home away from home for the patients and caregivers. Donations from these companies have saved the Society millions of dollars, allowing us to invest more funds into Hope Lodge communities and provide other services for cancer patients and their caregivers.
