Hackathons for patients
For Cancer Patients with Complex Treatment Decisions
To help cancer patients with complex treatment problems find their best options.
Some frontline treatments are not curative and patients run out of options. They’re beyond the standard of care and clinical trials, and have ‘hit a wall’. Everyone is unique, which means that for many people the “standard of care” process doesn’t work. They need to search for their own unique solutions, which can feel lonely and overwhelming.
