AstraZeneca Hope Lodge of the American Cancer Society, Philadelphia
AstraZeneca Hope Lodge is more than a home away from home for a cancer patient and a caretaker enduring cancer treatments, it’s a true blessing!
Volunteering at Hope Lodge enables me to honor my Mom and the many loving people that supported her during her battle against Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Volunteering at Hope Lodge is so much more than volunteering, it’s seeing the perspective and hope sustained in people fighting their cancer and the gratitude for all of the many volunteers. While fighting cancer, I know, it was the little acts of “doing and kindness” that people so graciously gave to my Mom and family that I will be forever grateful for. A true genuine, thoughtful person who was always available when you needed her that was my Mom. Holiday dinners and in fact any time, you are were always welcome with love. I joke, because I do not enjoy cooking, but volunteering at Hope Lodge isn’t about my cooking. Well, maybe people they are being kind, but it’s possible with all the many volunteers that so kindly work with, but themselves are so eager to go back and volunteer at Hope Lodge because of the love, gratitude, strength and peace and hope that is sustained at the Lodge, but more importantly the people.
