We’re Changing the Way People Face Cancer

It’s coming soon. Finally, a tool that will go beyond education and awareness. What patients and caregivers need most is actionable guidance from the moment they hear those two words:

“It’s cancer.”

SURVIVEiT® is currently raising funds to build a revolutionary tool that will offer this.

“It’s all the things I wish I would have known and done when I was first diagnosed – in a way that’s approachable.”

What Cancer Patients Do First, and Next, Matters

We’re developing a revolutionary tool that will change the way people face cancer.

What does one do immediately after receiving a cancer diagnosis? What are the first steps and how can they take back some control? Many want to advocate for themselves or their loved one, but don’t know how. That is about to change.

Most survivors (and even treatment centers) advise those facing cancer to advocate for themselves. We agree. But without the guidance, knowledge, and support to do that, patients and caregivers don’t know where to begin. This tool will replace the guess-work with simple, actionable guidance, for the entire journey.

SURVIVEiT®’s new digital tool will provide the answers using a personalized 5-step guide that anyone facing any type of cancer can use to access the best care and get some peace of mind.

No longer will cancer patients and caregivers have to aimlessly navigate or be reactive. Survivors, caregivers and medical experts are behind the tool that will empower patients and caregivers to make informed decisions.

We’re With You Every Step Of The Way

Once built, our tool will empower cancer patients and caregivers to:

1. TESTiT – Get a thorough diagnosis, based on today’s science.
2. VERIFYiT – Connect with an expert to review your unique case.
3. MATCHiT – Be part of the decision-making process.
4. SUPPORTiT – Access symptom management support.
5. LIVEiT – Find the right resources to help you thrive with cancer.

Your Role In This Change

What Can I Do To Help?

We want to equip those facing cancer with a tool that replaces chaos with control, uncertainty with peace of mind, and isolation with meaningful support. 

 

We need funds to build the tool and volunteers to test it before we launch.

Standard treatment protocols exist, but doctors and treatment centers can have very different opinions on treatment strategy.

It’s not a matter of IF a patient needs to advocate for themselves, but HOW.
