Help from people who have been there
The Network Manager program partners with our cancer community in an effort to join hands with you as patients and care partners to further enhance health literacy. The Network Manager program was launched in March 2020 by Tamara Lobban-Jones and has grown exponentially into an award-winning hub of true patient empowerment.
Our Network Manager program is made up of highly passionate empowerment ambassadors volunteering from around the country, engaging with PEN’s network of cancer patients and families, and serving as a direct conduit of empowerment. Our goal for this program is to support health communities around important topics and provide navigation for the path to empowerment.

Our strong team of compassionate volunteers does not give medical advice, instead, they help health communities adapt to the realities of living with a serious illness. PEN Network Managers pay it forward as the communities’ human bridge to survivorship as they understand first-hand the anxieties and uncertainties that come with a cancer diagnosis.
“Joining PEN’s network of cancer managers has truly been inspiring. Although we’re all across the world, conversing with them via email and Zoom chats and hearing their stories and thoughts of how to resonate with more patients is what feeds my soul. PEN is constantly growing, with their goal of representing all cancers.” — Carly Flumer, PEN Network Manager, excerpted from The Power of the PEN Network Manager Program
