1 in 3 people will get cancer in their lifetime.
Cancer is personal. It touches all of us. Whether you’re a survivor yourself or you’ve been there to hold the hand of a loved one fighting for their life, you’ve felt the strength that comes from knowing you are not alone.
We started The H Foundation because one person inspired us. As our organization has grown we’re still inspired every day by the thousands of people who’ve shared their stories with us. And now we invite you to share your stories of who has inspired you to find a cure for cancer.
Raise your hand on Social Media to bring attention to finding a cure.
1. Write the name of someone who inspires you on your hand and take a picture.
2. Share the picture on your social media with your #CancerIsPersonal story.
- Post on your social and #CancerIsPersonal on: Facebook - Instagram - Twitter
- Help us spread the word by making your post public!
3. Encourage your friends to get involved.
4. RAISE YOUR HAND TO PLEDGE YOURSELF IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER!
We would love it if you would share your story with The H Foundation visitors too!

Rena has been like a second mother to me. I grew up across the street from her and her family...her three sons, daughter and husband were considered like a second family to us.

My Dad was never sick, until he got gallbladder cancer. He did everything that he could to fight back including a clinical research study.

I lost my brother this past April to lung cancer. He never smoked a day in his life. But when he was diagnosed he was already in stage IV and it had spread everywhere.

August 10, 2015 was the day my life took a drastic turn. My back and ribs had been hurting. I kept going to my Chiropractor as I thought I had a rib-head out.

I was born in Raleigh, North Carolina. I grew up in a small town outside of Raleigh called Youngsville. I seemed normal as a kid. Played sports. Got into trouble.

Losing someone to cancer changes your outlook on life. In October of 2015, I watched my family deal with the grief that comes from losing someone to cancer. My cousin John passed away after a stem cell transplant that we hoped would save his life.

I am alive because of cancer research and some very good doctors. I had adenocarcinoma with a fistula connection. A form of colorectal cancer that appears where it shouldn't be.
