Kosten Foundation Donation Provides Guest Suite at Harrah’s Hope Lodge Memphis to Support Cancer Patients Undergoing Treatment

Cancer Patients that are visiting from out of town to receive cancer treatments will be able to focus more on their battle against cancer and worry less about their housing as local nonprofit, The Kosten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Support announced a donation of $15,000 to the American Cancer Society Harrah’s Hope Lodge in Memphis, Tennessee to fund a dedicated guest suite. The suite will be used, free of charge, by any cancer patient and/or their caregivers who travel to Memphis to receive treatment.

“We are very pleased to contribute to Harrah’s Hope Lodge Memphis, an organization that brings great value to adult cancer patients and their families from various cities across the country by providing free temporary lodging in Memphis as they undergo treatment,” said Alan Kosten, Chairman of the Kosten Foundation. “We have met many out of town patients at our free, monthly support group meetings, so we are humbled that we can help out of town patients and their families better focus on their treatments as Harrah’s Hope Lodge Memphis provides a free place to stay.”

With more than 30 Hope Lodges nationwide, the American Cancer Society provides free, temporary housing for cancer patients who are undergoing treatment. Hope Lodge also offers a supportive and safe environment and provides convenient accommodations such as private rooms and bathrooms, with space for a family member or caregiver. Lodges offer kitchen facilities and rooms for gathering to watch TV or to share encouragement. Transportation to nearby treatment is also provided through the Lodges.

“We are very grateful to The Kosten Foundation for their generosity and continued efforts in cancer support and research,” said Maria Robinson, Senior Manager of Harrah’s Hope Lodge Memphis. “This donation will allow Harrah’s Hope Lodge Memphis to provide cancer patients and their caregivers with the temporary lodging, support, and care they need to fight their cancer battle and build a healthy future.”
