The Cancer Journeys Foundation is an organization that strives to give cancer survivors the tools they need to deal with the aftermath of cancer. “Hearing the words “you have cancer” is a devastating experience,” the organization says. “Those words begin a journey that will last a lifetime, a cancer survivorship journey. As of January 2019, there were 16.9 million Americans living with cancer in the United States, and that number is projected to increase to just over 18 million by 2020, only a year away. If there is good news in the cancer story, it is that cancer survivors are living longer. Part of this is due to earlier detection, part to better treatment and in part to lifestyle changes by survivors themselves that allow their immune systems to more effectively battle their cancer.”

Many cancer survivors find that support from their medical team stops once they are cancer free, and they are often left on their own with no real support from other parties. While the cancer may be gone, the process of recovery is still difficult to endure, and many people are left to go through it all alone. This is where the Cancer Journeys Foundation comes in. Founded by Robert Hess, a cancer survivor, the foundation has been providing cancer survivors with the support they need to get through the recovery process for years.

Over the course of the 10+ years that Hess has been a cancer survivor, research has revealed that there is no structured post-treatment program for cancer survivors and their caregivers. He opened the foundation with the mission of creating a central digital hub of survivorship information. The ‘no one left behind’ ethos Hess picked up during his time in the US army is the central guiding principle behind the foundation. “Cancer affects us all. Every family in America,” observes the foundation. “The Cancer Journeys Foundation provides cancer survivors and their caregivers the information and support they need to develop and implement effective survivorship plans and move forward with their lives.”

Hess has been honored twice at the Los Angeles Times Business Journal Health Leadership Awards for his prostate cancer advocacy. In 2015, he was chosen as a National Cancer Champion by the Amgen Corporation’s Breakaway from Cancer program. Through the many foundations, organizations and projects he has worked on, he has helped many cancer survivors work through the aftermath of cancer treatment.

With the Cancer Journeys Foundation, one can contribute meaningfully to improving the lives of cancer survivors. The foundation’s website has a great deal of information for cancer survivors, or those currently fighting cancer, that is aimed at improving their lives and increasing their chances of beating the disease, both physically and psychologically. The King and Queen of The Mountain Competition is just one of the many ways in which one can get involved and help. Read more at

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent.

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Mar 28, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun earns 900th career win

Mar 28, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...

FRISCO, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys will introduce Mike McCarthy as the ninth coach in franchise history Wednesday. The club made the announcement Tuesday, a day after McCarthy reached agreement on a deal to replace Jason Garrett.
