Cancer Expert Now aims to empower members to make more informed decisions throughout their cancer journey by providing them with access to top tier experts from home.
“Our mission is a personal one, because cancer is personal. We hope to provide families with the opportunity to get rapid expert input in any cancer type they may be facing, so they can make informed, confident decisions about their path,” said Jeff Meehan, CEO and Co-Founder of Cancer Expert Now. “The experts we have in our network are many of the people that are considered ‘thought leaders’ in the type of cancer they treat.
