But Where Will We Stay? Traveling for Cancer Treatment

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.


Joe's House is a nonprofit organization providing a nation-wide online service that helps cancer patients and their families find lodging near treatment centers. Founded in 2003, Joe’s House was conceived after Ann Calahan’s first husband, Joe Warnecke, died of cancer. Joe battled the disease for six years. During those six years, Ann and Joe had difficulty finding appropriate accommodations in unfamiliar cities. Ann vowed to correct this problem.


Joe's House feels that patients deserve an accommodation expert to help them with their travel needs. They list various types of lodging throughout the United States. Details on each lodging facility are available with information on amenities, rates, and reservation methods and requirements.
