Our History

In their fight against cancer, Bill and Barbara Hawthorne bequeathed money to The Johns Cancer Foundation to provide a resource center for all cancer patients in the community.

In 2001, with the support and backing of The Johns Cancer Foundation and CJW Medical Center, The Hawthorne Cancer Resource Center opened through the vision of Co-Founders, Robin P. Yoder and Melanie Dempsey who wanted to centralize the essential cancer resource to help patients and loved ones cope.

In April 2015 the name of the foundation was officially changed to the Hawthorne Cancer Foundation.
