AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY HOPE LODGE Lexington KY

hopelodge

 

“In 1998, a Hope Lodge in Lexington was conceived by a long time volunteer and cancer survivor, Bill Robbins, after seeing other Hope Lodges in the country.” It was discovered that almost 5,000 patients came from the surrounding areas of Lexington for cancer treatment. The Hope Lodge was created with a vision to give patients  that were receiving cancer treatment a free place to stay.

AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY HOPE LODGE LEXINGTON KY

Sometimes it can be difficult for those patients to receive the care they need because they have to travel from away from home. This not only creates an emotional burden on them and their families but also a financial burden. By providing these patients and their families a free place to stay, it gives them one less thing to worry about when going through this difficult time.

kNOwMORE Nonprofits was at the Hope Lodge in Lexington and AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY HOPE LODGE LEXINGTON KYgot a chance to interview Director, Jason Young. He explained that the Hope Lodge helps these cancer patients going through a difficult time, feel a sense of community because the other residents are going through the same experience.

THE RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE- Lexington, KY

Ronald McDonald House LexThe Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Bluegrass has a mission, “To create and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and to strengthen families by keeping them together in times of medical need.” This nonprofit organization provides a home for families that have a child in the hospital. They understand the importance of keeping families close together in difficult times.

According to their website, “It costs around $72 per night, per room to operate the Ronald McDonald House program. To support ongoing operations, we encourage, but do not require, guests to make a donation of $10 per night (or whatever amount they are able) in order to ensure the availability of the House for future guests.” They do not turn away families that are unable to contribute.
