About the Foundation

The A Way With Words Foundation was created for people who are survivors, relatives, and those touched by cancer. The A Way With Words Foundation, Inc. is a literary non-profit 501 c 3. We publish poetry, and stories of inspiration to help others fight their battle against cancer, at no cost to any writer/survivor or caregiver.

The primary goals are to provide avenues of expression for cancer survivors, especially after treatment; to generate resources for healing and surviving; to increase awareness of cancer in children; and to raise money for cancer research and cancer survivors. We also work to raise awareness about cancer challenges and survivor tools in a way that creates a positive force in our communities. More....

The Foundation sponsors the ROCcK Children's Choir. R.O.C.c.K. means Raising Our Commitment to cancer Kids. The choir is comprised of cancer survivors, siblings and those touched by cancer ages 3-18. The choir started ten years ago in Youngstown, Ohio and on average performs 100 plus events a year. Every performance is a donation to who needs us. Our mission is to inspire hope when all seems lost, and direction when needed. More....
