Hello Dennis--I am going to jump in here if that is okay with a suggestion. If you are traveling for treatment, you can contact the American Cancer Society and inquire about their Home Away From Home Program. This program has participating hotels--such as the Marriot, Embassy Suites, etc. that provide accomodations for patients/families who have to travel for treatment. There is no cost to the patient/family--this is a donation participation by the hotels. Also, one need not have to prove financial need. That is not a criteria. The only criteria is that the patient travels for appointments, treatment, etc. Also, the U of W Clinical Social Worker may have information on this. My husband and I availed ourselves of this program when he had to make trips to Denver for clinical trials--some which required he be there for several days. Hope this information is helpful. Take care, Sandy
