Wednesday, 27. February 2019, AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center in Boston, Annual Pay it Forward Event

Join us in the New Year for our annual member Pay It Forward event and winter social! This year we are excited to again have the opportunity to volunteer at the AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center location in Jamiaca Plan.
The AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center is a state-of-the-art facility serving as a "home away from home" for cancer patients traveling more than 40 miles to their outpatient treatments. There is no charge to stay at Hope Lodge, for either the patient or his or her caregivers.  In comfortable surroundings abutting Boston's famed Emerald Necklace network of parks, patients and caregivers can discuss their experiences, share stories, eat meals together, and draw strength from one another. This is where Tomorrow’s Women TODAY can help make a difference.We will be hosting and serving dessert for guests of The Lodge.  While serving up a delicious ice cream sundae bar with all the fixings, Tomorrow’s Women TODAY will have the opportunity to engage with guests, learn about the experience at Hope Lodge and hopefully bring a smile or a moment of peace during our is a maximum number of 20 member volunteers for this event and spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis.  We are asking for members who would like to participate and volunteer to donate $20 towards this AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center program as part of this give-back event. Members who are unable to participate in the volunteer evening but who are interested in contributing the $20 donation is also appreciated. Spend time with your fellow Tomorrow’s Women TODAY members while starting off your new year on the right foot by giving back and brightening someone’s day during this pay it forward event.

However, the cost of traveling far from home and then facing the expense of hotels, meals, and transportation, can make that option prohibitive for many. The AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center provides approximately 13,000 nights of free lodging to cancer patients every year.  A typical guest spends six weeks at the Lodge, saving more than $6,000.  Since its opening in November 2008, the AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center in Boston has provided over 94,000 nights of free lodging to 2,850 cancer patients from 48 states and 15 countries, saving them more than $17 million in housing costs.
