The Doug-Out is a two-bedroom house that provides a home for parents to stay while their child is receiving treatment at no cost to them. The home was opened in 1981 and was named in remembrance of Doug York, a 13 year-old boy who lost his battle to cancer in 1982. This program relieves some of the financial and transportation stress of long term hospitalization our parents face during their child's treatment. A caretaker, who lives behind the Doug-Out, is available at all times in order to provide the best hospitality possible for current house guests.
Through programs like the Doug-Out we see a continual impact in the lives of children diagnosed with cancer, their parents, siblings and the community.
Services available at the Doug-Out:
- Overnight Accomodations
- Shower Facilities
