NPR is pleased to welcome new client, Joe’s House! Joe’s House is a nonprofit organization that helps cancer patients and their families find a place to stay when traveling away from home for medical treatment. They are not a physical house but list cancer treatment centers and hospitals across the country with nearby lodging facilities that offer a discount.
Every day more than 3,500 people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer. Many must travel to cancer centers specializing in their particular treatment needs. Combined with the millions who are already fighting this disease, it means tens of thousands of cancer patients every day throughout the United States are looking for a suitable place to stay. Cancer patients who must travel for treatment accompanied by family and friends, must research a wide variety of accommodations in unfamiliar cities. Research methods include word-of-mouth, traditional hotel websites, and relying on social workers or other healthcare professionals. Joe’s House mission is to centralize the various lodging options that cater to patients and to streamline the reservations process.
We’re so excited to be supporting and working with this wonderful organization. Welcome to the NPR family, Joe’s House.
