The Hospitality Center at Kootenai Health

Construction is now underway on CCF's most ambitious project to date; the Hospitality Center at Kootenai Health. Scheduled for completion in the Spring of 2019, the 20-unit lodging facility will serve both adult and pediatric patients in medical crisis undergoing treatment in Coeur d'Alene. The Hospitality Center is the result of a collaboration between Kootenai Health, Community Cancer Fund (CCF), and Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest (RMHC).

It will provide overnight accommodations that are low cost for adults and free for pediatric patients and their families accessing services at Kootenai Health.

Helping Our Community

Community Cancer Fund works collaboratively with existing regional cancer organizations to identify and fund gaps in services provided to local cancer patients. We are committed to investing donated funds in local programs that benefit Inland Northwest cancer patients, their families, and the organizations that serve them.

Featured Partner: Camp Goodtimes at Camp Reed

Since 1985, Camp Goodtimes has made it possible for children with cancer to be free to experience a traditional summer camp. This medically supervised camp allows children (on or off treatment) to be surrounded by others who know exactly what they are going through.

#NOSHAVENOVEMBER

No Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness.

THE CONCEPT

The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.

GET INVOLVED

Participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs go natural, and skipping that waxing appointment. 

THE RULES

The rules of No-Shave November are simple: put down your razor for 30 days and donate your monthly hair-maintenance expenses to the cause. Strict dress-code at work? Don't worry about it! We encourage participation of any kind; grooming and trimming are perfectly acceptable.
