A Matter of Fact

There are limited options for blood cancer and stem cell transplant patients because of the patient’s unique and complex needs.

Gift of LIfe Transplant House provides housing for patients and caregivers. It is a communal space that provides private rooms with public kitchens and shared spaces.

Hope Lodge provides housing for cancer patients, but not for blood cancer patients.

Travis’ House through the Red Drop Resources provides 2 apartments for blood cancer patients.

Are there other options for housing like the Ronald McDonald House?


We have lofty goals and with the generous support of our donors we hope to house 100 patients and families our first year and double that the following year. It is our dream to offer housing support to every family in need. Although it might seem out of reach we are determined to dream big and produce places of space and grace for these cancer warriors.

How many people does Home4Healing expect to help each year?


According to the leukemia and lymphoma society, one person is diagnosed with a blood cancer every three minutes. Mayo Clinic treats thousands of blood cancer patients a year.

If you are diagnosed with leukemia and need a stem cell transplant, you and a caregiver need to stay for a minimum of 3 months within 20 minutes of Mayo. - Shannon’s stay was 9 months, that is $27,000 in housing costs! 

How many people are diagnosed with blood cancers in a year?


Cost of housing varies tremendously, but all short and long term options are expensive. Subsidized care facilities like Gift of Life Transplant house charge $1000 a month for a communal living space whereas a furnished apartment or hotel room averages $3000 a month.

According to Mayo social workers EVERY patient needs some type of accommodations if they don’t live in the Rochester area. Overnight visits for appointments, ongoing testing and procedures, and outpatient care during treatment and transplant all require a patient to stay nearby.
