The CancerHawk Foundation (www.CancerHawk.com) makes cancer its prey by connecting cancer fighters and their supporters with the information and resources they need to navigate nearly every aspect of their individual and evolving treatment and recovery needs.
Created by outspoken advocate and visionary Robyn Stoller, the CancerHawk Foundation website is home to Robyn’s award-winning blog which offers the latest cancer-related news and research written in her signature no-nonsense style. The site also houses the newly created and launched CancerHawk Navigator, the most comprehensive searchable database of its kind. Patients, caregivers, advocates, social workers, as well as major cancer treatment centers and thought leaders turn to the navigator to quickly and easily connect with resources based on a specific cancer diagnosis, stage of disease, state of residence, age and gender. The 37 categories of assistance range from academic assistance and childcare, to fertility, lodging, nutrition and financial help, to name a few.
