      have you called the ACS?? they have places for cancer patients and caregivers to stay. In Tampa, Hope Lodge is right next to Moffitt Cancer Center..and they even provide transportation to and from the lodge. So do call the ACS.

      Yes, there is a hope lodge in NY too. I would also ask the Livestrong network. They may be able to connect you with a Y in the area.

      Ask the hospital immediately for a social worker or cancer navigator, they should know immediately if there is local housing available and how to apply for it.
      Good luck to you!
