When cancer patients live too far from the hospital to travel for daily treatments, they can find housing and support at the Patrick Taylor Hope Lodge operated by the American Cancer Society on River Road in New Orleans.

Members of the Metairie Rotary Club recently provided a meal of spaghetti, salad and cupcakes for people at the lodge. Among those helping out were Luke DeLouise, Lindhe Guarisco, Tom Kennedy, head chef Michael Martin, Dan Milham, Roy Perrin, Janice Ray, Jim Ray, Bob Rogers, Steven Russo and Russ Van Norman.
