It’s our passion to make sure cancer patients and their loved ones have a cancer professional to be their guide. When it comes to a complicated disease like cancer, we understand that patients encounter many individuals who will help them along the way. But what’s missing is that one person who stays by the patient’s or family’s side throughout the journey.
We are committed to walking this path with you, using our expertise to create a roadmap for your travels and shining a light on the journey ahead. We provide a consistent, human connection that doesn’t leave you when you move on to your next stage of treatment.
Wherever you find yourself on the journey, we will be there with you.
Our co-founders, Nabeel and Vanessa, were united by a shared vision: to untangle the complexities of navigating cancer care. They each came to this goal through a personal experience with cancer. For Nabeel, it was watching a friend’s family struggle through the cancer process. For Vanessa, it was feeling overwhelmed by her mother’s cancer diagnosis despite a 20-year career in biotech oncology.
When Nabeel and Vanessa first connected, they each had prior experience starting healthcare companies. Nabeel co-founded Evera, an at-home medical testing service, and Vanessa founded My Health Concierge, an early incarnation of Navvisa. Buoyed by their shared belief in what technology could offer in delivering personalized cancer guidance, they assembled a team invested in the mission of providing personalized cancer navigation services to patients and caregivers.
