American Cancer Society

Through our partnership with ACS, we have been able to save and celebrate lives by supporting cancer survivors, improving cancer patients’ access to care, finding cancer’s causes and cures, and increasing the delivery of healthy education and care. As part of this amazing partnership, Henry Schein Cares provides Hope Lodge guests with welcome kits that include personal care items. Each Hope Lodge offers cancer patients and their caregiver a free place to stay, when their best hope for effective treatment is far from home.
