Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home

Free Home for Incurable Cancer


Since 1939, the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne, Servants of Relief for Incurable Cancer, have cared those suffering from incurable cancer who cannot afford care elsewhere. The Sisters strive to provide a place where the sick can experience comfort, peace and security. 

Our Services

We provide a loving, peaceful, home-like environment to our Guest patients.  All patients admitted to the Home have a diagnosis of incurable cancer.  We strive to meet their physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs, and to give comfort and consolation, knowing that we cannot offer them a cure.
