Tell me … do you feel scared? Confused? Overwhelmed? Hopeless? Lost?
Whether you are a patient or a caregiver, a cancer diagnosis can be frightening.

You do not have to go through cancer alone!

We created Cancer University aka Cancer U for cancer patients and caregivers. Cancer U is an online membership platform that will educate and empower you to become an advocate for your cancer care. Through coaching, teaching, and training, Cancer U is designed to mimic a university setting with online courses, a library, a community, events, and more.

“After my own cancer diagnosis, I realized quickly that I needed to learn a lot about my disease and how to communicate with my providers more effectively. Cancer U is an excellent resource that provides everything you need in one location to help educate you and your care team to prepare you for what’s ahead.”

‘Whether you are a patient or caregiver, the moment you hear the dreaded ‘C’ word, your life changes. Forever. Your power is stripped away as you react to your new normal of tests, treatments, doctors, and medications.

A cancer diagnosis puts you into a reactive state. I lost the most important person in my life to cancer, and I remember swimming in the chaos of helplessness. Even after starting a non profit to combat her cancer, I realized patients needed more than information and education.

They needed to be empowered to advocate for their cancer care. I began to wonder…

What could I do to change a cancer patient’s journey?
How could I empower cancer patients and caregivers from the moment they hear the ‘C’ word?
How could I combine my talents of teaching, coaching, writing, and advocacy to create better outcomes for cancer patients and caregivers?

When you ask the universe questions, you often receive the most surprising answers.
