WTF is CancerHAWK?

WTF is CancerHAWK?

Exactly one year and 210 posts ago today, I launched CancerHAWK.  (BTW today is also the 17 year anniversary of my first date with Alan, a day we always celebrated & treasured.)


WTF is CancerHAWK?  Well, according to one of my twitter followers and I quote… CancerHAWK is “Just the most kick-ass #cancer resource site to learn to advocate…be empowered…& survive!!!”  Thank you @Nodiaz21 for this wonderful tweet.  😉


Here’s the dealio (as my daughter always says)…  While battling my husband’s cancer, we met some of the most amazing people (and organizations) who helped us.  You see, Alan’s cancer was really rare and the chemotherapy wasn’t doing what it was “supposed” to do.  We had to fight our way through some unbearably rough times (understatement of the century) and think outside of the box- way, way outside the box.  We were fortunate to find out about an innovative approach and potential treatment option to Alan’s cancer (Top 5 Reason Why I LOVE Champions Oncology) and services like free private air transportation to return home after Alan had brain surgery (FREE Flights for Cancer Patients).  We were lucky to find the “right” assistance at the right time.


It’s a huge challenge to find these “right” resources.  I mean, 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.


Kudos and many thanks to ALL the amazing people who are helping cancer patients navigate their way through this journey.  If you know of a resource or a novel approach to treatment, please email at and I’ll write about it.

    Happy birthday to Cancer Hawk! I started my blog about a year and a half ago, as I wanted to be a resource for others too. Thanks for all you do! This is my first visit. Guess I’m sort of slow…
