There’s no escaping it… We all know someone who has been affected by cancer. For most, there is a battle beyond the disease that is tough to overcome. Here to talk about a new facility that will help many in Hawaii is Debbie Kenui. Many cancer patients face weeks or months of treatment away from home. At the same time, they often struggle to manage medical bills and other financial burdens associated with the costs of travel. Some patients even forgo treatment due to the financial and emotional burden. When the American Cancer Society’s Clarence T.C. Ching Hope Lodge opens its doors, it will offer free, temporary housing for cancer patients who are undergoing outpatient treatment and their caregivers a place to stay when their best hope for treatment is far from home. The Hope Lodge community will offer a supportive, home-like environment that lets patients focus on one thing: getting well.
