Tru by Hilton, which recently opened on the Vestal Parkway, and the Fairfield Inn on Upper Front Street in the Town of Dickinson have joined the Cancer Society’s national hotel partner: Extended Stay America.

To be eligible to receive housing through the program, patients must be traveling for a cancer-related medical appointment, be in need of housing near their treatment center, have a permanent residence and be able to care for their personal needs or travel with a companion who can assist them.
