If you don't get any offers from private residences, there are possibilities for reduced-cost hotel stays, it that's an option for you guys.
For example, you can google "cancer patient local accommodations" (without quotes) and pull up a number of sites which may offer some suggestions.
In particular I noticed that the American Cancer Society offers what they call "patient lodging programs":www.cancer.org/treatment/supportprogramsservices/patientlodging/index
Of course these are technically temporary housing assistance programs for people who are going somewhere for actual treatment, and from your post that doesn't appear to be exactly what Paul would be doing. However, since the purpose of your trips would be to qualify yourselves for financial savings in an air carrier program, as I understand your post, and financial saving is what the ACS programs in the link above are supposed to be all about
, then you might possibly be able to argue that you and he should qualify for that reason. I don't know if the ACS people would go for that, but it might at least be worth a try to ask. The site above gives an ACS toll-free number you could call and at least ask about
The ACS site also mentions something they call "Extended Stay America":www.extendedstayamerica.com/?mid=ps-bran-geo-goo-
which you can also take a look at. The ACS describes it as "… Through a generous nationwide partnership with Extended Stay America, the American Cancer Society will offer free or reduced rate lodging in cities [Ft. Lauderdale is one of them] with Extended Stay hotels for those who qualify for the program." You might have to present the same argument about
Paul qualifying, but, again, it's possibly worth a try.
You can also try googling "ft lauderdale cancer center" (again, without quotes) as this pulls up some organizations in the Ft. Lauderdale area that may be able to help or offer suggestions.
If all else fails, I suppose there is always that "priceline.com" thing, pushed in ubiquitous TV commercials by the former Captain Kirk.
In any case, good luck.
