TaketheFight is a Radical Intervention in Healthcare
Cancer Strategists fight alongside patients at their local cancer center to help patients be more supported, more engaged, and more efficient in their fight.
“It removes the anxiety from the patient better than anything I’ve ever seen.”
Dr. Brian Lally, The Comprehensive Cancer Center at Wake Forest Baptist
We Give Patients an
Edge Against Cancer
Students attend doctors’ appointments and treatments with patients, facilitate the exchange of medical information, increase compliance to the doctor’s treatment plan, and provide emotional support.
“You’re supporting patients, and not only that– you’re supporting the whole healthcare system in general.”
Dr. Brandi Page, Johns Hopkins
