The Hawthorne Cancer Foundation is currently working on a new program to support our local cancer community.
Our Mission and Vision Statements reflect the values and aspirations of The Hawthorne Cancer Foundation [501c3] and the Sara Cannon Cancer Institute at Johnston-Willis Hospital, supported by a network of community resources. We strive to join the oncology community of Central Virginia, empowering breast cancer patients with a private space of their own while healing at home with dignity and caring.
