2017 Spring Ourtreach: Cy's Place Pediatric Transplant Hospitality House

Kids battling cancer or receiving bone marrow/organ transplants come to the Mayo Medical Center in Rochester, Minnesota from communities all over North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin – and the USA and the world. The medical treatments that these children have to undergo often leave them with compromised immune systems. Extremely vulnerable to germs, these boys and girls need a super-clean place to stay and mend that is still within reach of their doctors and emergency medical facilities.

Cy’s Place wants to build a new facility in order to make it possible to hold out a hand to more of these kids (and their families) by providing such a place. Cy’s Place seeks to be God’s hands and feet and to minister to families in need. The vision for Cy’s Place is to provide welcoming and affordable accommodations and support services for children and their families who are undergoing transplant and stem cell treatments at the Mayo Clinic and Eugenio Litta Children’s Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota. 

The need for affordable housing for out-of-town families facing the challenges of a child in cancer treatment at the Mayo Clinic is extensive. Cy’s Place honors the world-class medical professionals at Mayo Clinic who are helping children, and wishes to offer support by providing lodging for out-of-town families with children who are facing significant medical challenges.


A Bella Christmas: Thankful Hearts
