American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Nationwide Supporters

Through the generosity of donors, American Cancer Society Hope Lodge facilities are able to provide free overnight lodging and support to cancer patients and their caregivers who must travel for treatment. Thanks to our supporters, patients have a place to call home and can focus on the most important thing: getting well. 

The Society is very fortunate to have nationwide supporters who have helped make each Hope Lodge community a true home away from home for the patients and caregivers. Donations from these companies have saved the Society millions of dollars, allowing us to invest more funds into Hope Lodge communities and provide other services for cancer patients and their caregivers.

Since 2007, the Whirlpool Corporation has generously donated nearly $1.5 million in new appliances, replacing equipment in existing Hope Lodge communities and providing state-of-the-art appliances to new locations. Being able to prepare food guests enjoy is comforting, and having high-quality appliances available helps make Hope Lodge communities feel like home.

I hear the clinking of silverware being loaded into a dishwasher, people talking in the kitchen while preparing dinner, the whir of the washing machine ... it sounds like home – that’s what gives me so much comfort.

Since 2013, Extended Stay America has provided more than 50,000 nights of free and discounted lodging to more than 6,000 cancer patients and their caregivers, saving them $3 million in lodging costs. This generous donation, valued at more than $1.4 million, has provided a valuable relief to Hope Lodge communities with waiting lists, giving patients a place to stay until a room opens up at the Hope Lodge facility, and it has increased the number of families the ACS serves with lodging by 30%. In 2015, Extended Stay America donated an additional 100,000 nights of free and discounted lodging.

We truly appreciate your consideration for cancer patients. Without this program, I would have been sleeping in my car again like I did the first time I had to go for my treatment. Thank you so very much!”

As a generous supporter of the American Cancer Society, Tempur-Pedic has donated mattresses and bedding products to Hope Lodge locations from coast to coast. Tempur-Pedic understands the importance of sleep in healing and supports Hope Lodge program by helping tens of thousands of residents get their best night's sleep.

I was so surprised to not only find a warm and cozy place in the Hope Lodge, but to find brand new Tempur-Pedic mattresses in our room! Sometimes you take things for granted, and having a comfortable place to lay your head is one of them.
