Challenge

When put in front of a cancer diagnosis, parents have to consider not only the medical treatment but also the logistics. That's why cancer affects not only the body, but also the mind: parents want to stay close to their child to give them emotional support but their worries are too many. parents end up facing unexpected expenses for travel, accommodation, and food.

Solution

The "Home of Hope" offer families large, comfortable, free of charge spaces where families can stay for all the time they need during cancer treatment. A safe place to avoid the burden of shifts to the hospital, accommodation and food costs and to help keeping the family together when it matters most.

Long-Term Impact

It's been demonstrated that taking care of the "environment" of children affected by cancer improves the survival rates and the quality of life during treatment, as it helps keeping hope and building their future after cancer. In addition, offering a safe place to stay discourages dropout rates and allows families to focus on the process of treatment.
