This is an awesome tool and should help the overwhelmed feeling upon diagnosis!

I always feel like it is me asking the doctors all the questions, because it is all done from the patient's perspective.

…the content is not similar to other sites because you guys focus on explaining it to patients not just doctors. This is a much better approach in my opinion… I used the…information to convince my oncologist to order a ctDNA test….
