~ Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present. ~ Albert Camus
North Star Lodge is a non-profit Cancer Care Center and relies upon charitable contributions to provide state-of-the-art care throughout the region. Contributions support the patient emergency fund, nursing education fund, North Star initiatives fund and the equipment fund.
Recently, the patient emergency fund helped local family, grandparents who are fostering three young grandchildren. While the grandfather received treatment at North Star Lodge, their home (a motor home) burned to the ground with pets inside. The staff at North Star jumped into action, donating clothes, food, gift certificates and toys while the social worker utilized the patient emergency fund to locate temporary housing, transportation and grocery certificates.
“It never ceases to amaze me that giving at North Star Lodge never stops at the end of the day. Of course, cancer knows no limits and neither should we if we can help it.” North Star Director Mary Marsh
