Cancer Circle is a web-based platform that enables patients and survivors to connect in a secure, relatable, fun, and supportive way. We’re your friend during tough times.
Founded by two pediatric cancer survivors, Jonathan Edelstein and William Scherr, Cancer Circle aims to provide patients with the same friendly, contextually-aware support that William provided for Jonathan when he was first diagnosed. We bridge the gap between the sensitivity of patients’ situation and their desire to interact with others their age in a friendly way.
Currently in testing, we encourage prospective users to reach, so they can help in the process and gain access after launch.
Our top priority, we accomplish frictionless security through a simple code and parental consent. This enables Cancer Circle to verify your treatment status and gain parental approval quickly before allowing you to start connecting with others.
