The Cancer Awareness Trust is a charity dedicated to providing people with information about cancer that they can understand easily and trust.
We are building a unique digital platform, powered by artificial intelligence, that will be a go-to guide when it comes to living with cancer – essential guidance throughout and beyond treatment.
With so much information available in the digital age, knowing what to believe can be overwhelming. The CAT will assist at every stage of dealing with cancer with accurate, accessible information validated by eminent oncologists.
The CAT’s sole aim is to help people facing the most challenging journey of their lives.
To achieve this, we need your help.
When you or your loved one is diagnosed with cancer, a sense of worry and despair is inevitable. Whatever your doctor tells you, it is natural you want to know more. You will be confronted by a blizzard of information from a wide range of sources. So where do you turn to for the help, hope and encouragement you are looking for?
In this digital age, there are countless sources of information and you can spend endless hours trawling for help on issues such as drug treatments, surgery, clinical trials, diet and recovery. Sadly, it is difficult, if not impossible, to find reliable information all in one place.
The CAT will make a real difference to you and your loved one’s experience of cancer. It will be a unique resource providing personalised recommendations …..the best food, drink and exercise regimes…which vitamin supplements to take or avoid…the most appropriate clinical trials for specific cancer types… We will show how to get world class genomic testing to assist in a precision medicine approach. We also will link both you and your consultant to the latest state of the art cancer care management systems and software to help support you during your treatment. For oncologists, The CAT offers reliable and easy access to world-leading research articles and data.
The CAT will be a clear, accessible trustworthy path to find vital cancer information, tailored for patients and their loved ones. Armed with valuable knowledge, they can not only hope but plan for the best.
The Cancer Awareness Trust is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Trustees will oversee a team of technical artificial intelligence and machine learning experts, who will design and build our digital platform. It will also oversee the development of the charity supporting its fundraising, growth and marketing outreach.
