Every donation goes a long way to help fund free stays at #HopeLodge. Stays for patients like Jim: “My wife and I had been driving up for treatment. We’d spend the night prior at a hotel, then get the treatment, then drive home. At the oncology center, the social worker said, ‘Try Hope Lodge because you’re going to be here for an extended stay.’ We came over here and this place is absolutely fabulous. It’s amazing. All of your basic needs from home are right here.” .
To help patients like Jim reach treatment graduation or to support American Cancer Society, text LODGE to 41444 to donate today.

“We could do nothing for patients with melanoma back in the early 70s. What’s been pretty incredible to have seen over a 40-year period of time is a disease that, when it was advanced, had almost no treatments available to now having genuinely meaningful treatment. We have options we never had before and that’s in part because of research that was funded by the American Cancer Society.”- Dr. Leonard Lichtenfeld, our Deputy Chief Medical Officer.

Some cancer treatments cause people to lose some or all of their hair. If wigs aren't for you, opt for a turban or stylish scarf. #HairLoss #CancerTreatment
