Patient Leader

I started after losing my 47 year old husband to cancer to help others avoid the same frustrations we experienced while navigating this disease. My goal is to connect cancer patients and caregivers to groups and resources they never knew existed or even thought to seek out. I share information and advice on topics ranging from financial assistance to support networks to cutting-edge research- anything that might benefit a particular person’s situation. I am also a featured writer for Huffington Post on all things cancer.

After Robyn lost her husband to cancer she started CancerHawk, a blog that shares resources and information to help cancer patients and caregivers. She wants to educate people on what is available beyond the basics. Her sassy wit, straight forward blog is filled with so many great resources, it is easy to navigate and fun to read.  — Lisa
