Our Mission

Housing During Cancer Treatment In New York

Shazzy's Lodge Inc. is a New York State nonprofit organization providing subsidies to qualifying cancer patients and their families that require temporary housing during outpatient treatment at a New York State cancer center far from their home.

Oftentimes outpatient cancer therapy causes toxicities that require repeated emergency trips to the hospital during treatment. Shazzy's Lodge subsidies helps patients afford temporary housing close to specialized cancer centers which are typically located in metropolitan areas with high price short-term rental markets.
