American Cancer Society’s Harrah’s Hope Lodge
The American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Program provides a free home away from home to cancer patients and their caregivers who are traveling to seek treatment. More than just a roof over their heads, it is a nurturing community that helps patients access the care they need. Patients staying at a Hope Lodge must be in active cancer treatment and reside more than 40 miles away from their cancer treatment center. For more information, please visit the website.
