HOW WE CAN HELP

Accommodation

We can help you find comfortable, supportive and affordable places to stay while you are receiving cancer treatment.

Stay with us

Our lodges are welcoming homes away from home for people with cancer who need to travel to receive treatment. Our caring staff and volunteers are trained to help meet your practical needs during cancer treatment. The lodges also offer social and emotional support through different programs and activities. They are places where you can meet other people with cancer and their families, who understand what you are going through.

Each lodge has unique amenities and services available.

We are taking care to protect the safety and well-being of guests, caregivers, volunteers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact our lodges for details.
