American Cancer Society opens new Hope Lodge in Pennsylvania

Philadelphia Inquirer, May 14, 2009
The cost of travel can deter cancer patients from going to major cities such as Philadelphia for their treatment. But with the help of some big donors, the American Cancer Society made it a little easier for patients who live more than 40 miles from the city to afford treatment in the region's cancer hospitals. The society opened its newest Hope Lodge, which offers out-of-town cancer patients a free place to stay. The $7.3 million lodge, which has 37 hotellike rooms and a common cooking area meant to foster friendship and support, is near Fox Chase Cancer Center on land donated by Fox Chase.
