A diagnosis of cancer is life-altering and devastating. And that’s a gross understatement. Navigating a treatment plan and knowing about, much less making sense of, the information & the resources that already exist to help a cancer patient and their caregivers is as challenging and confusing as the disease itself.
While battling my husband’s cancer, I learned about so many amazing groups whose sole purpose is to help cancer patients and their caregivers on their journey. But the challenge is finding them. How can you search for things that you don’t even know exist?
To help answer this question, I created CancerHAWK. Some resources I knew about during our journey; others I wish I had known about. My hope is to make anyone else’s cancer journey a tad bit easier by sharing this information.
BTW, in case you are wondering, I chose the name CancerHAWK because hawks are symbolic of messengers and protectors. Keen vision is one of their greatest gifts, which is why they can see things that others may miss.
If you know of a resource that I can write about, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
