About Jean M. Schoen (Toledo, Ohio Author)
Jean is the Founder & President at Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio, Inc.
Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was created because of my personal cancer experience. Having realized a need in the community for additional support on behalf of cancer patients and families, this organization was established to provide the support and guidance I wished my family had when we went through it.
Since forming in December, 2008 we have helped thousands of people through their cancer journey. We continue to research the unmet needs of cancer patients and their families in our community and strive to create the additional programs that fulfill those needs. We do not compete with any programs already in place; instead we partner with local businesses and other organizations in order to ensure that all of those affected by cancer are served.
We have created 12 new programs that are unique to our organization and its mission. I have published 3 children’s books to raise awareness and educate young people about cancer in an age appropriate way that is not frightening. We have been recognized for our collaborative projects on an international level.
