Monica Knoll passed away in 2011 after fighting both breast and ovarian cancer. After being diagnosed with breast cancer she founded CANCER101 in 2002. The mission of CANCER101 is to empower cancer patients and their caregivers to take control over their diagnoses from the moment they learn they have cancer. Having a plan of attack, the means to stay organized, and access to appropriate resources and information is half the battle to getting through a cancer diagnosis. Monica’s dedication to helping the cancer patient and her beauty, grace and joyous personality were an inspiration to the Project Hope team and to all who met her.
