Cancer treatment sucks.
We’re pretty sure it does, anyway: we’ve seen friends and family go through it and the phrase “Laugh a minute” really doesn’t spring to mind anywhere along the way. It’s just one reason why being a Caregiver is hard, because you have to watch as someone you love goes through that. For the survivor actually going through it? We can only imagine. So many of us in the Faire community – and within the Relay – have our own tales of seeing or experiencing that journey, and there’s no doubt in our minds that if we can’t quite yet prevent it all of us want to make the next person’s journey a little easier.
That’s just the treatment, though. Now imagine that you’ve got to travel to get to that treatment, because the nearest centre is a hundred miles away, or two, or three…
That’s where Hope Lodge comes in.
