Cancer survivors to celebrate at ‘Keys of Hope’ reunion

SECAUCUS – To honor National Cancer Survivors Day, Extended Stay America and the American Cancer Society are sponsoring a ”Keys of Hope” reunion on Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14, featuring a special keynote by “Good Morning America” host and cancer survivor Amy Robach.
An estimated 1.6 million Americans will be diagnosed with some type of cancer this year. Of those, thousands will travel away from home for treatment. “Keys of Hope,” a flagship program between Extended Stay America Hotels and the American Cancer Society, is helping patients overcome the financial stress of traveling for treatment via an ongoing donation of nearly 50,000 free and reduced room nights that has already impacted 6,700 lives.
Cancer survivors and their families who have taken advantage of “Keys of Hope” will converge on Secaucus for a weekend of fun, celebrating survivorship and honoring those still fighting. During the event, Robach will share her powerful testimony about her battle with cancer, and an extended message of hope to patients and families.
Attendees will be varied groups of people whose lives have been affected by cancer, including men, women, young and old, mothers, fathers, patients, survivors, and caregivers. In addition, executives from American Cancer Society and Extended Stay America Hotels will be available to share more about the program and ongoing partnership.
The event will take place at Extended Stay America, The Plaza at Harmon Meadow, 1 Plaza Dr., Secaucus.
