Everyone’s life has been touched in some way by cancer. Today, some 1 million Americans are newly diagnosed with cancer and approximately 12M are living with cancer ….and most are unaware of their testing, treatment, and clinical trial options at the time they’re diagnosed. The potentially deadly disease is complicated, overwhelmingly difficult to understand, and downright frightening. But new technology is helping ease the burden of effectively dealing with cancer Swellter– an innovative life sciences company based in Temecula, California is developing an app that will change all of this.
