Hope Lodge

design-trends-nurse-07Tomorrow, October 8, New York City’s Metropolitan Home Showtime House in TriBeCa is opening its doors for a benefit for ShowHope, raising funds for the New York Hope Lodge.

Hope Lodge is a program of the American Cancer Society that offers free, temporary housing for cancer patients undergoing treatment and their families. As their website says: “Fighting Cancer is hard. Finding help should not be.

Getting emotional and social support from other survivors can be as important as getting the proper medical care. At the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge, guests share similar experiences, and are supported by caring staff and volunteers. The nurturing, comfortable environment at Hope Lodge allows patients to focus on what is most important – fighting cancer.”

The Met Home Showtime House is a quirky venue in the city where the design magazine, leading designers, and the Showtime cable network have created unique spaces in two outstanding downtown penthouses. Suites of rooms and terrace spaces are decorated as interpretations of six of Showtime’s leading shows: Weeds, The Tudors, Nurse Jackie, Californication, Dexter, and The United States of Tara. Each set of rooms will have a themed cocktail and food offering during the event. It’s a creative way to raise funds for an incredibly important program. If you’re not in New York or can’t make it to the benefit, explore the American Cancer Society website and find a way to make the road a little less rocky for someone you know, in someone’s memory, for yourself, or just because it’s the right thing to do. There are 28 Hope Lodges throughout the United States.
