We use technology and a patient-firstapproach to democratize clinical trial access, so that every patient has the best chances of recovery and leading a healthy life.
We provide unbiased clinical trial information by collecting information from public registries so that patients, their healthcare professionals, and their loved ones can evaluate all potential treatment options. We believe it is important that every patient has a full overview of their options, separate from financial interests in the industry. Ancora does NOT recommend particular trials and does NOT limit results because we have a commercial deal with a sponsor.
Empowering patients is important to us. Ancora helps patients and their doctors and caregivers make the best personal decisions for their treatment plan. Ancora is free to use for all patients. We believe that clinical trials are an amazing way for patients to access the latest advances in medicine, and we are dedicated to helping raise awareness about clinical trials as an option to be considered.
Clinical research has a diversity problem. For example, currently, 86% of participants in US clinical trials are white. This has resulted in some serious problems, as if only one kind of person participates in clinical trials then the findings are not always generalizable in other populations. We can develop better, safer, more effective treatments if clinical trials are more reflective of diverse populations (e.g, all ages, genders, races and ethnicities). Ancora allows ALL patients to search for and learn about clinical trials directly, without any education, insurance or physician-related barriers, making clinical trials more diverse.
Why do I care about breast density?
The more dense your breasts are, the higher your risk of breast cancer.
Dense breast tissue on a mammogram is white. Cancer also appears white on a mammogram. Therefore, the more dense tissue you have the more difficult it is for the mammogram to find the cancer.
This creates THE PERFECT STORM that might leave cancer undetected . . . and left to grow and spread.
Panacea is supported by a diverse group of innovators, scientists and entrepreneurs with healthcare, technology and business backgrounds. Each individual adds invaluable perspective, experience and outside-of-the-box thinking.
Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) analyzes every known human gene, providing valuable information about individual disease risks such as cancer, neurological conditions, and some forms of cardiovascular disease. The report from Panacea focuses on “actionable” genes—those with known risks and available medical interventions—enabling individuals to take proactive measures with physician oversight and expert genetic counseling all in one place.
When Sue Weldon was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she began searching for information on therapies that would complement the medical treatments she was receiving. What she discovered was a lack of easily accessible resources on topics like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.
In 2009 Weldon founded Unite for HER to Help Empower and Restore others diagnosed with breast cancer.
Unite for HER’s outreach began in Philadelphia, PA, and has since grown to provide services, support, and education to those affected by breast and ovarian cancers nationwide.
Every person with breast and ovarian cancers will feel the support of a loving community, and will have access to comprehensive education, services, and tools that enrich their health and well-being.
