I am excited to help promote a new app specifically designed for breast cancer patients. Outcomes4me, recently launched, is the brainchild of a team of healthcare professionals, engineers, and patient advocates. The founders of the company focused on breast cancer, as this common diagnosis can often be overwhelming and difficult to come to terms with for many women, and men. Utilizing their expertise and clinical experience, the Outcomes4Me team assembled an easy to use app that allows patients to learn about treatment options, understand symptoms and explore clinical trials. Patients are able to ask questions and share their own journey. The app connects breast cancer patients across the United States and hopes each individual experience can lead to a deeper insight and improved outcome for those involved. Recently added to the app is a questionnaire regarding genetic testing. Outcomes4Me aims to empower the patient and lend a hand during a difficult time. I encourage you to check it out and pass along the information to friends and family. Click here for more information: Outcomes4Me
