ST. LOUIS, MO — A 21st century house boat will sail this summer on a cancer awareness tour and hvac manufacturer Unico, Inc., headquartered here, is participating in this unique fundraising project.

Called “Jan’s House of Hope,” it is a 3,100-sq-ft home furnished and decorated by Home Magazine with a health and well-being theme. The house will be placed on a seagoing barge that will travel to ports of call between New Hampshire and Virginia from June 1 through July 29.

Scott Intagliata, marketing director of Unico, manufacturer of a high-velocity mini-duct heating and cooling system, said that its system has been donated to condition the house.

“With more than 8 million living Americans with a history of cancer, Unico understands the importance of raising cancer awareness in our society,” he said.

Promoters estimate that the house will raise $10 million for community cancer awareness and hospice programs through public tours, events such as VIP parties, and the auctioning of the house at the end of the tour. For more information on Jan’s House of Hope, call the National Cancer Awareness Foundation at 603-643-2722 or visit its website at
