"When I was around 7 a dear friend lost her younger sister to cancer. We were from a very small town in Maine, so all treatment and care were done in Boston which was over 3 hours away. The Boston House was their home away from home.

The Boston House offers low-cost accommodations for the families of children receiving cancer treatment at BCH and DFCI's Jimmy Fund Clinic. A home providing comfort and assistance to families during very stressful and scary times while undergoing cancer treatment. I am so thankful Hallam-ICS is offering this donation to such a wonderful organization."
