Why I Support the American Cancer Society

Why I Support the American Cancer Society

On March 27, 2020, ACS made the heartbreaking decision to suspend operations for the Hope Lodge program. Due to the growth of the pandemic, we could no longer ensure the health and safety of our immune-compromised cancer patient residents, nor of its volunteers and staff.  As a result, we now have rooms where health care workers can rest between shifts or sleep overnight if returning home is too difficult. As many health systems are now turning to community partners for support, ACS is ready to help and has a unique opportunity to assist with temporary lodging. The growing reality is that many health care workers are unable to return home each night due to long shifts and fear of exposing their families to the COVID-19 virus.

In addition to providing full access to Hope Lodge facilities, ACS has launched the Hope Lodge COVID-19 Response Fund to support these efforts, and to help provide the resources necessary to repurpose and operate our Hope Lodge facilities during the COVID-19 crisis. It also will ensure that Hope Lodge facilities are ready to accept cancer patients again in the coming months, and help ACS to continue with vital programs to help cancer patients during this pandemic.

That's why we need your support. Will you join us by donating now?

Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
