“Norm vs. Cancer takes us on a roller coaster of rollicking good fun to deep despair. It is the most unusual and stirring portrayal of someone’s fight against cancer that I have ever seen. It is entertaining, enlightening and inspiring. Bravo!”
Robert Fletcher, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care

“…One man’s  battle with cancer turns into a triumph for all who are privileged to witness Robert Hawke’s fearless, funny, moving, and amazingly virtuoso performance. Are you ready to meet your body?”
Steve Turtell, Development Manager, THANC Foundation

“…a refreshing and remarkably humorous look at a very serious topic….Robert Hawke is an incredibly talented writer and actor… his one-man show pulls off the seemingly impossible – showing amazing raw talent.  I laughed for an hour – on a subject which previously only brought tears… “
Erika Rauscher Markowitz, Executive Director, THANC (Thyroid, Head and Neck Cancer) Foundation

“Watching Robert Hawke’s Laughing in the Face of Cancer was not only hilarious, but it helped to break down barriers of isolation by allowing the room to laugh and appreciate the shared experience of illness. Being able to laugh at something that can be so traumatic and draining, was empowering and set the tone for the rest of the day.’

Nicole Foster, Ovarian Cancer Canada

“This compelling tour inside Norm’s body brought to life his personal struggle with accepting and then dealing with cancer. But what was most amazing was the way that Rob Hawke used humor to guide us through a fearful journey that resulted in hope for us all. NormVsCancer brought tears to my eyes from laughter and inspiration – a must see!”

Harvey A. Skinner, Dean, Faculty of Health, York University
