Traveling away from your own community for cancer treatment can be expensive, exhausting and complicated. Accommodations and appointments are difficult to organize and many patients are feeling their most vulnerable during this time and need to focus on their health. Being in familiar surroundings near family is an important part of emotional well-being and improves one’s ability to cope with the stress of cancer.
At North Star Lodge, our goal is to make every patient’s journey with cancer as stress free as possible. Our medical specialists, support services, radiation and chemotherapy treatment equipment, laboratory and pharmacy services, are located under one roof.
