In an effort to assist cancer, trauma and transplant patients receiving active treatment, several members of our Superior Group staff offered their support at the American Cancer Society’s B. Thomas Galisano Hope Lodge located in Rochester, NY.
The Hope Lodge Hospitality House offers free or low-cost lodging for cancer, trauma and organ transplant patients and their caregivers, who travel upwards of an hour to receive necessary treatment. Throughout the stay, the Hope Lodge attempts to aid in the guests healing process through a variety of wellness and support programs, all while lowering the financial burden brought by mounting medical bills.
During their visit, staff members purchased, prepared, and served meals to guests and their families currently staying in rooms provided by the Hope Lodge. They also took the time to sit and chat with some of the patients to provide some additional words of encouragement.
“It was an amazing experience getting to sit and talk with the residents and patients. They are very thankful that people take the time to come and cook for them. The patients and their families come from all over the United States to stay at a Hope Lodge (there are others located nationally) while they receive treatment,” said Senior Recruitment Specialist, Sonia Caraveo.
