HOPE LODGE

WHAT WILL BE YOUR LEGACY?

Cancer strikes three out of four families.  Treatment is rigorous, lasting weeks or months.  Every year more than 96,000 cancer patients travel to Houston for treatment or follow up visits.  For many, the quality of care at the Texas Medical Center (TMC) offers the greatest hope of beating cancer.

Hope Lodge will be Houston’s first and only no-cost residence for cancer patients and their families visiting our area for treatment.  It will be the nation’s largest, with 62 patient suites and five stories and will offer approximately 23,000 nights of free lodging (www.cancer.org/hopelodgehouston).  Thanks to land donated by the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, the Lodge will be conveniently located on Almeda Road in the TMC.  Hope Lodge Houston will be open to all cancer patients of any age who are receiving ongoing treatments or follow up care and live at least fifty miles from their cancer care providers.  However, the Society has and will continue to review patients’ needs on a case by case basis in order to help each patient access the cancer care he/she requires.

Naming opportunities are available throughout the facility providing the chance to leave a lasting legacy.  Leading the Hope Lodge Houston Build hope. Touch lives. Campaign, the Society is extremely proud to have President George and Mrs. Barbara Bush as Honorary Chairs, and Robert and Janice McNair as our Campaign Chairs.

The need is identified, the vision is clear, and now the leadership of prominent individuals and the support of Houston’s corporate and philanthropic communities can help us reach our goal.

TOGETHER, WE CAN BUILD HOPE & TOUCH LIVES
