What is Navigating Cancer?
Navigating Cancer, Inc is a new venture founded by medical and technology veterans. The mission of the service is to empower cancer patients and their loved ones to better manage and navigate their way through the cancer journey. The site will help people learn about various types of cancer, track their daily health and specific cancer symptoms, and share their status with their family, friends, and care team. It is a place where patients and their loved ones can connect, feel supported and learn from others.
At Navigating Cancer, we believe that cancer affects us all. In the next 12 months over 1.4 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States alone. In fact, the odds of someone being diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life are a staggering 45%.
We also believe in everyone’s ability to make a difference and to make living with cancer a more empowering experience for those involved. If you or someone you care about has been touched by cancer, you know how confusing and stressful this journey can be. For this reason we’ve developed navigatingcancer.com – to enable cancer patients and their loved ones to better manage and navigate the cancer journey.
When will we launch the site?
We are just days away from our first iteration of the “Sharing” section of the site. We decided to focus first on people: providing patients with tools to connect to the people who matter most in their cancer journey; to provide encouragement, assistance and support. We have heard overwhelming feedback from patients and survivors who express a desire to give back and to support and encourage patients who are in the earlier stages of their cancer experience. That’s why we have built the My Experience feature as one of the first areas to be released. This is a place where cancer patients can find stories, narratives, tips or words of wisdom from others who have walked some part of this road before. They can learn and be encouraged on the subject and at the point where they need the information the most.
