The American Cancer Society understands that undergoing treatment for cancer can be both financially and emotionally overwhelming. Getting the right care sometimes means that cancer patients must travel far from home, often to a cancer treatment facility in another city, adding the additional burden of transportation, hotel, and meal expenses.

Hope Lodge offers free, temporary housing for cancer patients and their families who are undergoing treatment. More than a place to stay, Hope Lodge is a home away from home, offering a comfortable and supportive environment for encouragement and healing.

Gilda’s Club New York City was named for Gilda Radner, the brilliant comedian and one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live. For years, she made us laugh with memorable characters like Baba Wawa, Emily Litella and Roseanne Roseannadanna. Gilda was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1986. She learned to live with cancer with help from a support community she found in California, where she felt she could express what she was really feeling—an experience she described in her autobiography, It’s Always Something. It was her dream that anyone touched by cancer would be able to receive the kind of emotional and social support that she had found. Following her death in 1989, Gilda’s husband, Gene Wilder and her cancer psychotherapist, Joanna Bull started the Gilda’s Club movement. In June, 1995 GCNYC opened its signature red door – Gilda’s legacy to everyone living with cancer.

The Ronald McDonald House provides temporary housing for pediatric cancer patients and their families. Here families find a strong, supportive and caring environment which encourages and nurtures the development of child-to-child and parent-to-parent support systems. Every day, children form friendships with other children and, through these bonds, regain a sense of control and experience the fun of childhood. Parents also gain strength and new understanding through the friendships they form with other parents who understand exactly how they feel.

Ronald McDonald House in New York City is the largest facility of its type in the world. The House can accommodate 83 families, and it is filled to capacity almost every night. The House’s location in Manhattan, in close proximity to 12 major cancer treatment centers, draws children and families from across the country and the world, as well as from the metropolitan New York City area.
