About our project

The problem we solve: When diagnosed with cancer, patients often miss information shared with them by their doctors, especially when the information is particularly upsetting. As a consequence, cancer patients often feel they lack information, which can lead to uncertainty, anxiety and depression; adding to the burden of facing a life-changing diagnosis.

About our solution: Our goal is to leverage the success of our interactive, virtual education platforms to provide patients with NHL, and their caregivers, access to the latest information about their diagnosis from leading experts and from other patients with NHL. Our program will provide clinical and supportive information in a manner that gives patients and caregivers a sense of control over their diagnosis, from the comfort of their own homes. We will utilize our strategic interactive marketing team and partnerships to reach as many patients as possible, when they need information the most.

Progress to date:We have developed CancerCoachLive.com for our first program, focused on b-cell non-hodgkins lymphoma, which launched on August 4, 2016. We hope to grow to include education for patients with other types of cancer as well.

How We Help Patients

Our platform provides education and support from leading experts for cancer patients who are looking for answers upon diagnosis and throughout their cancer journey.

How We Help Physicians

Cancer patients are overwhelmed in the face of their devastating diagnosis, and often leave their physician’s office feeling like they missed information. Patients with higher self-efficacy and the capacity to cope with the disease and treatment are better able to adjust to their diagnosis and experience a greater quality of life. This patient education program aims to provide a resource for doctors to provide their patients, in the face of a devastating diagnosis. Leading experts will provide reliable, accurate information and resources for patients in an engaging format, in language patients can understand, in the comfort of the patients own home.

How We Help Hospitals

Patient education can impact healthcare costs by saving your hospital money and lowering readmission numbers. Cancer patients are facing a life-changing diagnosis and need as much support both in and out of your hospital as possible. When visiting your hospital, many patients miss information as they are overwhelmed by upsetting information. Let us help to fill the gaps, and provide clinical, supportive and reliable information from experts in oncology through an innovative, interactive, virtual patient education program.

How We Help Partners

In addition to promotional opportunities, and our ability to provide partner communities with education through our site, we are able to share content as well as educational outcomes data with partners.
