  11. LETTER FROM FAMILY MEMBERHOPE LODGE NYC “Words cannot describe how much I appreciate all you do for my parents at Hope Lodge. It has been an extremely difficult for us since August when my dad was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a very rare and serious cancer. We were worried about my parents being away and so far from home while undertaking such difficult treatments. But, after meeting your amazing team of caring and compassionate people this weekend, I can now put my worries to rest and know that they couldn’t have been in better hands. The activities really help them get their minds off the fact that they are sick. It is especially helpful for my mom to meet people in our same situation, even though each patient is battling their own form of the disease. The caregivers and families at the Hope Lodge are the good people and good things are happening everyday. My mother sends our family an email daily that updates us on my dad’s condition. Once she tells us about him, she always goes on to say things that have happened with them and other patients (friends). She mentions them by names. On my last day in New York for my visit with them, I went with my dad to the hospital and ran into patients that live at Hope Lodge. Their faces lit up when they saw each other and each wished the others a good day with treatment. I felt happy that they were surrounded by each other as I left for the airport. Thank you again for your support. I also thank you, our friends at Hope Lodge, for your dedication to my parents, your dedication to other guests, and your dedication to your mission. You have truly given my parents the ‘Hope’ they need to keep fighting.” Kimberley (Daughter of Hope Lodge Patient and Caregiver)
