Of course, West U is located right next to the Texas Medical Center. In fact, I’ve been told that we have more doctors per capita than any other city in the nation. And many of them work in cancer research and treatment.
These dedicated professionals have seen their many of their patients struggle with life-and-death decisions. Treatment at the Medical Center may be their best chance of survival – but staying in Houston for the length of those treatments can financially crippling.
Now we have Halo House Foundation, a brand-new 501(C)3 organization. Halo House provides inexpensive furnished housing to lymphoma and leukemia patients. They have just received a grant from the drug company Cephalon, and they plan to have their first patients housed in time for Christmas.
Here’s how you can help…
- Donate furnishings online. Halo House is registered at www.Target.com
- Donate to Halo House directly, at their website www.halohousefoundation.org
And if anyone has an un-used guest house or garage apartment, what about hosting a cancer patient and family?
