Blood Cancer Awareness Month may be drawing to a close, but for HealthTree, we are taking a substantial leap forward. HealthTree is expanding its blood cancer reach from supporting multiple myeloma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) to now all blood cancers.
HealthTree is poised to revolutionize the landscape of blood cancer support with the launch of HealthTree 2.0 on October, 23rd 2023. Our groundbreaking platform will now support 35 types of blood cancers, including all types of leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloproliferative neoplasms. This new era reaffirms our dedication to providing unmatched support, knowledge, and resources to a wider community of blood cancer patients and their care partners.
An Overview of HealthTree Foundation
In addition to offering unparalleled educational resources aimed at helping patients become active members in their care, HealthTree is known for its first-of-its-kind data portal called CureHub, where its primary mission is to accelerate a cure for blood cancers. CureHub allows patients to securely share their validated diagnosis, lab values, disease genetics, patient-reported outcomes, family history, and more in a single place for researchers and scientists to analyze with the goal of accelerating research toward a cure.
For the past decade, our accomplishments in the fields of myeloma and CLL have been a source of inspiration. From helping patients access clinical trials to fostering collaboration between patients, caregivers, and medical professionals, we have strived to be a trusted ally in the battle against blood cancer. But we recognize that blood cancers come in a wide variety of forms, and our vision for a world free of blood cancers extends to every patient and every type of blood cancer.
Now, with the introduction of HealthTree 2.0, we embark on a new chapter, extending our mission to all forms of blood cancers. To view all the blood cancers that HealthTree now supports, visit www.healthtree.org. Enter your or your loved one's blood cancer name in the search bar to visit the disease-specific website and access the programs and resources that are personalized to your type of cancer.
HealthTree’s 3 Pillars: A Glimpse into the Future
All of our core programs and resources will be tailored thoughtfully for each of our 35 blood cancer divisions. Everything we do will lie within HealthTree 2.0’s three foundational pillars:
- Lifetime Personalized Support and Education: This pillar empowers individuals with the knowledge and tools necessary to make informed decisions regarding their treatment and care.
- Meaningful Patient-to-Patient Connections: By fostering personal connections between patients, individuals will find comfort in knowing they are not alone and become able to support one another, share key resources and feel empowered to help find a cure.
- A Powerful Patient Data Portal called HealthTree Cure Hub: This powerful portal revolutionizes the sharing and utilization of patient data in the fight against blood cancer.
You can view a detailed breakdown of the programs and resources each of our 35 blood cancer divisions will have within our three pillars in the picture below. All of our new blood cancer websites will start with news, a specialist directory, HealthTree Journal, patient navigator support, HealthTree Connect, HealthTree Moves and every section of Cure Hub except treatment options. Our dedicated and passionate 60-person team will be working hard to roll out the remaining programs and resources throughout 2024!
