Mission Statement

Shazzy's Lodge Inc. is a New York State nonprofit organization providing subsidies to qualifying cancer patients and their families that require temporary housing during outpatient treatment at a New York State cancer center far from their home. Oftentimes outpatient cancer therapy causes toxicities that require repeated emergency trips to the hospital during treatment. Shazzy's Lodge subsidies help patients afford temporary housing close to specialized cancer centers which are typically located in metropolitan areas with high price short-term rental markets.

Description

The inspiration for Shazzy's Lodge is Shazzy Shajahan. Shazzy was 5 years old in 2012 when she was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor, a common childhood kidney cancer. Shazzy is a U.S. born citizen but at the time of her diagnosis, was living in India with her mother and grandparents. Shazzy was able to fly back to the U.S. for two months of state-of-the art housing and care at a renowned childrens hospital. After surgery and follow-up observations, Shazzy's prognosis was favorable for a cure however she required an additional 5 months of outpatient chemotherapy with scheduled weekly hospital visits. Shazzy was set to receive her 5 month outpatient treatment at a hospital in Long Island, New York however she and her family were not able to afford to pay for 5 months of temporary housing near the hospital. And Shazzy didn't qualify for housing support from existing charitable organizations that she reached out to. Shazzy's friends stepped in to help. Dr. Alex Pearlman was Shazzy's mother's former manager from her time working with him at a research lab at the NYU Langone Medical Center. Dr. Pearlman organized a group of friends to raise funding for temporary housing on Long Island. This enabled Shazzy and her grandmother to live a few blocks away from her hospital during 5 months of outpatient chemotherapy. Shazzy's struggle inspired Dr. Pearlman and his fellow Shazzy's Lodge board members to form a charitable organization to help patients like Shazzy.
