Our mission

Curve.life exists to help cancer patients feel better and live longer, whatever the prognosis

The number one question patients ask their doctors after a cancer diagnosis is “what can I do to help myself?”.  According to the science, the correct answer to this question is “a lot”, but that is not normally the answer patients receive.

 

Patients then turn to the internet for help, but are promptly overwhelmed with information, much of it bad, some of it dangerous.

 

Curve.life empowers patients and their families to help themselves by providing easy to understand information based on the latest research.  We focus on the things that patients / families can do alongside their medical team to help.

 

Curve.life’s sole aim is to help patients feel better and live longer, whatever their position.

Meet the team of cancer experts from different fields who together bring you Curve.life
