"The American Center Society has done an amazing job of working with foundations and private donors in building a network of facilities that house diagnosed victims of cancer for free throughout the US. In one recent example announced on October 10th 2014, a gift by the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation will help establish a Hope Lodge in Jacksonville. The center, run through the American Cancer Society, will provide free lodging for adult cancer patients who travel for treatment to Baptist Health, Mayo Clinic, St. Vincent’s Healthcare, UF Health and other healthcare facilities in Northeast Florida from outside the region.
