Your American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer - starting right here in your community. In addition to funding lifesaving research, we offer free programming and services for patients right here in Rochester including: Look Good Feel Better where cancer patients attend workshops to address appearance side effects of treatment and can also receive free wigs, Road to Recovery for transportation to and from appointments, a 24/7 hotline for any cancer-related needs, and so much more.
Our largest impact in the Rochester community is through our Hope Lodge. Hope Lodge provides a safe, supportive, home-like environment where cancer patients and their caregivers can stay free of charge when their best hope for a cure is receiving treatment in another city. Since opening in 2010, our local Hope Lodge has hosted in excess of 16,000 patients and caregivers.
Join our team for the first ever ROCtoberfest as we come together to celebrate the Rochester community! If you have questions about joining or donating to our team, please contact Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
