Our team's mission is to help end cancer
Welcome to HelenHealth!
When my mother Helen was diagnosed with cancer back in 2012, I remember feeling overwhelmed, not knowing who to turn to, and where to get advice. Simple things like what to eat became complicated for my mom. Whatever healthcare services and resources available locally were all we had access to.
My mom, unfortunately, passed away. Since then, I’ve often wondered about what we could have done to improve our situation. Then I started thinking about how we could make things better for people going through their cancer journey. I wanted to help other people in similar situations find the best resources they need to fight their battle against cancer and most importantly prevent cancer!
During the past few years, I’ve met really amazing people: physicians, scientists, engineers, healthcare professionals, cancer survivors, and people who have been deeply affected by cancer.
Together, we created this platform named after my mom, HelenHealth.co that connects people with the best oncology resources in the world.
On September 2019, we soft-launched HelenHealth.co in Santa Monica, California, and Boston, Massachusetts. The venture was further developed at the Harvard Innovation Labs' Venture Incubation Program and was accelerated through Harvard Medical School's Healthcare Innovation & Commercialization (HIC) Fall 2020 cohort; wherein we were part of a team recognized by leading healthcare industry experts and top tier venture capitalists with the "Winning HIC pitch."
Our team is also very excited to release our artificial intelligence-driven version, HelenHealth.ai this December 2021, which incorporates all of the invaluable feedback from the ever-supportive HelenHealth community.
As always, we’d love to hear from you! Please let us know how we can keep growing our community and digital health ecosystem, to make this the best platform to help prevent cancer around the world.
Each and every one of you inspires us every single day! We appreciate you!!
