The problem we solve: Statistically speaking, one in three people will have cancer in his or her lifetime. Moreover, according to the Journal of Clinical Oncology, up to 44% of cancer diagnoses and treatment plans are incorrect. If there’s any moment in your life when you want to be absolutely certain, it is when you are diagnosed with cancer. It can take weeks or months to reach an oncologist. Imagine the stress, worry and fear of trying to find the right information and the right oncologists when cancer cells are growing exponentially in your body.
About our solution: We offer a seamless experience that not only saves you time and money but also leads to better health outcomes and happier lives. We use the brainpower of the world’s top cancer doctors to improve health outcomes for cancer patients. We give patients 24/7 remote access to quality-verified oncologists. We’re multilingual and HIPAA compliant. Our 75 passionate, curious cancer doctors are trained and practicing at the best cancer institutions in the world. They have incredible expertise and have significantly lowered their rates to help us cure cancer at scale.Progress to date:
We have initial paying customers who love us. We raised $64K, partnered with ZERO Prostate Cancer and CancerAid to become a trusted source for optimal cancer care, and are participating in the Inova Personalized Health Accelerator.

We challenge the notion that high-quality, accessible cancer care is either unachievable or prohibitively expensive. We’re working to prove that optimal cancer care is affordable and accessible. We offer a seamless experience that not only saves you time and money but also leads to better health outcomes and happier lives.
We make it easy for providers to offer expert second opinions, phone consultations and clinical trial navigation. We give our oncologists 70% of our revenues, as well as manage payments, administration, and logistics, as well as provide medical liability insurance.
Late side effects can occur in new cancer survivors but are often detected by the care team (usually nurses) until they become severe. The reasons for this are partly because survivors are reluctant to report symptoms unless asked directly about them and also because of time constraints during the annual appointment with the oncologist. Using a web-based tool and having regular phone consultations with oncologists overcome these barriers. Our current approach is reactive and inhibits our ability to act quickly. We have identified a communication gap.
Personalized phone consultations with oncologists and web-based system for self-reporting symptoms helps cancer survivors live longer
We can help you achieve measurably better health outcomes for those impacted by cancer, while also reducing healthcare costs. We deliver measurably better outcomes and ROI throughout the care cycle.
