Because There Is Hope continues its mission of providing temporary lodging to those touched by cancer coming from out of town to Spokane for treatment. Last year, as we faced many challenges, we were able to serve 25 patients and caregivers with lodging. Current lodging is provided at 3 hospitality houses, Tammy’s house, Mike’s house, and Roger’s house. All three are now available to receive patients in need of a place to stay, free of charge.
Annual Brunch & Auction Fundraiser
Because There Is Hope went virtual this year for our Annual Auction. It was a fun time with our Auctioneer, Patty Roll, Miss Cheney Rodeo Queen Sierra Bos as our very own Vanna White and many volunteers. Thank you to our Sponsors & Donors. We raised over $11,000. These monies provide free lodging and gas cards to those going through cancer treatment. Sponsors: Cancer Care Northwest, Great Clips, House of Hose, Inland Imaging, Plastic Surgery NW, Paul & Michelle Inserra.
