Hope Lodge breaks ground

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A big crowd showed up Tuesday for a groundbreaking next door to the Ronald McDonald House.  The new neighbor will be the Hope Lodge, which will provide a home away from home for adults facing cancer treatment. 

Don Curry, Chairman of the Hope Lodge Campaign, says, "This will be a lot better environment, I think, for the cancer patients and they'll get to visit with other cancer patients while they're receiving treatment". 

This Hope Lodge will be the first one in Texas and is set to open in September 2010, which is when the office of the American Cancer Society will move there as well.
