Woman’s club hosts dinner for cancer patients
Members of the GFWC Lilburn Woman’s Club and family hosted a chili dinner at the Hope Lodge the Tuesday before Thanksgiving for cancer patients who could not be home for the holidays. Approximately 50 guests and their caregivers enjoyed several different kinds of chili with all the fixings.
The Hope Lodge provides free lodging and a home-away-from-home for adult cancer patients and their families. Guests who live 50 miles or farther from their treatment center may stay in one of the 52 rooms maintained by the American Cancer Society on a first-come, first-serve basis. Guests can stay for a day or up to a year as long as they are receiving treatment.
