No free lodging. You can get a small discount on hotels. The Hope Lodge (Arizona Transplant House) is on the campus but it doesnt house many patients and because it's also for transplant patients, I would think it's hard to get into for just cancer radiation treatment.

I saw the info on Hope Lodge but it only has 56 rooms and I imagine they're always full especially when the Snowbirds are here

My husband was biopsied December 30 and cancer was found in 11 of the 12 cores. Gleason 7, grade 4+3, strong family history of cancer. Genetic test results are pending. A Phoenix urologist did the biopsy and wants to immediately talk about surgery even before scans are done. So, I made a call to request an appointment with Mayo Clinic. We've both had good experiences with Mayo and both had successful surgeries there. Gathering records to fax to Mayo and awaiting an appointment. I'm having trouble sleeping and tend to overthink like if he needs 48 radiation treatments, where are we going to stay? We live in Yuma. Cannot afford a hotel for a month or two.
