Our Vision
Imagine a world…

Where there is no need to frantically open a thousand search results. Where health information can be found without huge, confusing navigation bars. Where you are guided through everything you need to know about your medical conditions—and all the other challenges that come with them—when you need to know it. Where you can choose to skip the details or dig deeper into a subject, take a break from a topic, or pick whether you want listen to audio or read a post.

Imagine a world where your health information is as personalized as your health journey. That’s the world we are working to create.

As a physician, I sometimes struggle with explaining how I see a disease process. Dr. Joe helps bridge the gap between medical providers and their patients in a way that connects the two seamlessly. It helps bring back to earth the experiences that a patient may face in dealing with her/his cancer diagnosis.
DR. MINI SOMASUNDARAM
Once you hear the word “cancer” in the same sentence with the name of someone you love and care about, it’s hard to hear anything else. Dr. Joe takes the guesswork out of understanding breast cancer diagnosis and treatment by explaining it in a way that nearly everyone can understand.
Dr. Joe is beautifully written with compassion and from the perspective of a friend. A really smart friend who has your best interest at heart and understands the importance and sensitivity of the topic you are discussing. I was impressed by Dr. Joe’s ability to discuss a woman's worst nightmare - YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER - in an educational and scientific way without losing the emotions every woman is feeling during this time.
There probably isn't anything more terrifying than hearing a physician saying, "you have cancer!" Then it starts, all the strange words, testing, confusion and your mind is overwhelmed. Dr. Joe will alleviate a lot of that anxiety. It can help you understand things and help you and your family feel more prepared for the difficult journey you have ahead of you.

Dr. Joe does a phenomenal job of breaking down the complexities of breast cancer step-by-step and in "layman’s" terms. The artwork, easy-to-read narrative combined with the analogies makes breast cancer education so much easier to digest. Breaking down the barrier of fear and hitting it head-on with concepts we can all understand.
