Welcome to the SON Foundation!
About the SON Foundation
Every day, many cancer center patients come from outside Indianapolis for cancer treatments. These patients are in town for multiple days receiving treatments and often their family members want to be present for comfort and support. These patients and/or their caregivers are confronted with many care and treatment decisions. Often underestimated during this time are the financial burdens associated with a family member's illness or injury - the added expense of travel, food, lodging, out-of-pocket medical expenses, and the possibility of loss or reduction in wages.
Lodging can be difficult to afford when a family member must be in treatment for an extended time. The SON Foundation Hospitality House is meeting this basic need by accommodating the patients, primary caregivers and/or family members. These accommodations are available to any patient, caregiver and/or family regardless of religious affiliation.
About the SON Foundation House
Located near downtown major hospitals, the SON Foundation Hospitality House has 5 private guestrooms, 3 shared bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, eating space, prayer room, community room with comfortable furnishings, and a business center with computers and Internet service. The hospitality house provides "a home away from home" where patients, caregivers and/or families can eat, sleep and take care of even the most mundane daily tasks, such as laundry. The SON Foundation Hospitality House also provides emotional and spiritual support to families. Guests also have the opportunity to form new relationships and gain support from other guests. Free resources related to treatment and healing are available. There is a requested donation of $15 per night at the SON Foundation House; however, guests unable to pay the full amount will not be turned away.
