The Launch of Navigating Cancer

userNews

Navigating Cancer has launched! We’re excited about being publicly available for cancer patients, survivors and their friends and family to better manage an overwhelming cancer diagnosis.

Overwhelmed! What we continue to hear from patients is that a cancer diagnosis is overwhelming. Navigating Cancer is here to help! Whether it’s reading about the experiences of others, learning about your disease, keeping track of your treatments, or using our tracking reports to better communicate with your doctor, we hope Navigating Cancer helps you feel more in control throughout your cancer journey.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the hundreds of patients, survivors and supporters over the past several months who tested our application and provided us feedback, encouragement and support as we built Navigating Cancer. We couldn’t have done it without you!

We’d also like to thank the many cancer bloggers who have supported us, provided feedback and have written about us. You can read their comments here.

Thanks also to our partners who are providing important information and resources to specific patients groups on Navigating Cancer including GRACE, Caring for Carcinoid Foundation, The Prostate Net, and Cancer Lifeline.

So what’s next? Our priorities moving forward are to continue to refine the site to build the best possible user experience for patients. We will also be working with a few cancer clinics to explore how we can further support your interactions with your healthcare team so that they can provide you the best care.

Most importantly, please provide us feedback! We’re listening and we’re here to help. Today is just the beginning of our journey…thanks for taking the first steps with us!
