Project Description

  • What is the mission of your company or project?
    • The mission of CanPlan is to empower patients and their caregivers to take a proactive approach to their healing, by providing them with tools to guide them through every step of their journey.
  • Describe the problem you are solving.
    • If you or a loved one is battling cancer, then you know about the stresses that come along with it: the heartache, the pain, the little changes that you need to make each day. You also know, however, that there is a level of stress that comes along with this fight, stress brought on by the seemingly endless march of pills and appointments and tests and operations. It gets so overwhelming, you often just take a passive approach to your healing, waiting on your doctor's every word and relinquishing all power and control over your life into the hands of fate. This leads to a spiral of depression and hopelessness, as you anxiously wait and painfully watch your life grow further away from what you hoped it would be.

      This was the story of my mom's cancer journey, who passed away from cancer in 2014. After a long year of fighting with no tools and anxiously waiting for cancer to take her life, I knew there had to be a solution to give other fighters a chance to have a different end to their story. I spent the next few years creating a tool that would not only return control back into the hands of fighters, but would also empower and guide them through every step of their journey.

  • What is the market size/opportunity?
    • In 2020, roughly 1.8 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States. That is equivalent of approximately 4,950 new cases each day! According to estimates from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in 2018 there were 17 million new cancer cases and 9.5 million cancer deaths worldwide. The cancer market is not only huge, it is greatly underserved.
  • What is your company/product about and how does it solve the problem?
    • CanPlan is a one-of-a-kind planner designed specifically for cancer patients and their caregivers. It provides daily reminders, guidelines for positive living, and methods for monitoring and tracking all of the details of your illness every step of the way. This isn’t simply a planner: it’s a roadmap to recovery, a book that will return control of your life back into your hands. Once you’re sick, you know you need a hand. With CanPlan, you’ll have one.
  • Why are you seeking funding and how will you spend the funding?
    • We want to continue creating the tools patients need in order for them to stay empowered and enlightened throughout their journey. We would love to use this money to purchase our own printer, so that we can come out with extension packs to our planner. These extension packs would be focused on mental health, spirituality, and cancer specific issues. We would also use the money to fund our donation program, where we give planners to fighters who are struggling financially.
  • Thank your backers and make them feel appreciated!
    • My mom lost her battle to uterine sarcoma cancer in 2014. CanPlan was created in order to honor her and give other fighters a chance to have a different end to their story.
    • Thank you so for supporting the work of our small, family-owned business. I am immensely grateful for your support in helping us get CanPlan into more hands. Every day I start by asking myself, "How can I love the cancer community well?" Love is the foundation of all our decisions as a company, and it is the driving force behind what we do.
