Your Dollars in Action
Hope Lodge offers cancer patients and their caregivers a free place to stay when their best hope for effetive treatment may be in another city. Not having to worry about where to stay or how to pay for lodging allows guests to focus on getting better. Minnesota is fortunate to be the home of two Hope Lodge locations in Minneapolis and Rochester. Learn more below.
Champions of Hope Gala:
New Name, Same Mission
What does it take to outsmart cancer? Research. We've invested more than $5 billion in cancer research since 1946 to find more - and better - treatments, uncover factors that may cause cancer, and improve cancer patients' quality of life. Currently in Minnesota, we are funding 16 research processes and investing more than $8.6 million.
Congratulations to our CEOs Against Cancer of Minnesota Chapter, Executive Board, and Planning Committee for helping raise over $450,000 to support the fight against cancer and our Minnesota Hope Lodges at our 2021 gala!
This year, we are thrilled to have a new name, the Champions of Hope gala, to highlight our ultimate goal: To spread hope to those touched by cancer. More information about the event available at www.hopegalamn.org.
