Surely you have someone near you who told you his/her cancer story. Those stories are always present in your mind, right ?
A new initiative is looking to share those stories. Smartpatients is a California startup by the former Chief Health strategist of Google Roni Zeiger and Gilles Frydman, who founded the ACOR lists. They are building an online community where cancer patients and caregivers learn from each other about treatments, clinical trials, the latest science, and how it all fits into the context of their experience.
They are looking for stories and funding to collect 100 real cancer stories (in the US at first) on Indiegogo. You might want to have a look. Only through real stories we can understand better how to help patients with this disease in addition to research.
