Just4Cancer Teams Up with Cancer Journeys Foundation to Broaden Mutual Capabilities
Partnership helps cancer survivors find essential resources to navigate once treatment ends.
Las Vegas, Nevada – November 16, 2020 – Just4Cancer, a peer-to-peer fundraising network committed to fighting the financial toxicity of cancer, today announced its partnership with Cancer Journeys Foundation, a Los Angeles based 501(c)(3) charity. Combining resources, the organizations look to notably expand the reach, visibility, and impact of fundraising campaigns that benefit those afflicted with cancer.
“I’m delighted to announce Cancer Journeys Foundation’s partnership with Just4Cancer,” explained the organization’s founder, Robert Hess. “There are many, many people who need help and donors that are willing to provide support. One unique aspect of this platform is that donor recipients are verified by the Just4Cancer team. This means donors have complete confidence that they’re supporting someone who truly is in need. We look forward to working closely with the Just4Cancer team.” Hess has been twice recognized by the Los Angeles Times Leadership Awards for his work in prostate cancer and was selected as one of Amgen Corporation’s Breakaway From Cancer National Champions in 2015.

Cancer Journeys Foundation was launched to provide cancer survivors with a centralized digital hub of survivorship information to support their journey after their formal course of treatment has come to a close. “Research indicates that there’s no structured program to support cancer survivors and their caregivers after treatment ends,” stated Hess, who set out to fill this gap. The organization provides pre-vetted information and resources ranging from iPhone apps through their comprehensive directory of listings that cover everything from emotional well being to veteran health care. The non-profit also provides up-to-date listings on cancer-specific programs and events. In 2018, Cancer Journeys Foundation was nominated for the California Innovation Award for its work in developing ProstrateTrackerApp, a free online prostate cancer early detection system.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Cancer Journeys Foundation and to significantly broaden awareness of Just4Cancer along with our member campaigns,” explained Clifford Rhayns, CEO of Just4Cancer. “By joining forces, we continue our fight to lessen the financial toxicity of cancer.” Learn more about each organization, their mission, and their work at just4cancer.com and cancerjourneysfoundation.org.
