EUREKA, Ca. (KIEM) – St. Joseph Hospital’s Evergreen Lodge for Cancer Patients receives a donation for $10,000 dollars from the California Cancer Crushers organization.
The Evergreen Lodge is a low-cost home away from home for cancer patients and caregivers who are undergoing extensive medical treatments at St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka.
It is the first facility of its kind on the North Coast.
In 2019, 325 people stayed at the lodged for over 3,200 nights combined.
Half of the funding the California Cancer Crushers raise each year goes to support a variety of cancer related causes in Humboldt County.
