Video: Charleston American Cancer Society Hope Lodge

April 23, 2015

The American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Network helps people get well by offering free, home-like accommodations for cancer patients whose best treatment options are far from home. The Charleston Hope Lodge was the first Hope Lodge in the country.

I went to our local Hope Lodge and spent three days filming and getting to know the space. It’s such a comforting environment and such a peaceful place. Being there helped me really appreciate the struggle that many people are going through, but it also opened my eyes to the beauty of the human spirit.

The Charleston Hope Lodge is such a wonderful respite for cancer patients and their families. Visit the Hope Lodge’s website for more information, then check out the experience, through my eyes:
