The Lydia Project is a grassroots 501(c)3 nonprofit charity whose mission is to provide cancer patients support for their financial and emotional needs, including lodging services, in order to facilitate their treatment and healing. Hundreds of volunteers make an impacting, healing difference. There is no other agency in the CSRA providing cancer patients financial and emotional services like The Lydia Project provides.
