The Hope Lodge offers a solution to cancer patients undergoing treatment far from home by providing free-housing on a first-come, first-served basis to them and their families during the course of treatment.
How can I help?
The best way to help our cause is by getting the word out about “Uphill Battle.” Let as many people know about the “Uphill Battle” as possible. We want to make this an incredible and very memorable community event. The goal is to have over 1,000 people holding hands and walking up the levee together in unison. If you or a loved one have been impact¬ed by cancer then you really should not miss this event.
Please join the Lympho-Maniacs on Friday, March 19th, 2010 at 5:30pm at the Hope Lodge on River Road. We will form a hu¬man-chain and walk up the levee one step at a time to symbolize that cancer is an uphill battle that needs to be fought together one step at a time.

Do I need to wear 70’s attire to get in?
No, but you might feel like a fool if you don't. The tackier you dress, the more comfortable you will be.
