Mission & Vision
Our mission is summarized in 3 words – Empowerment, Simplicity, and Trust.
Empowerment: We want to empower cancer patients and caregivers to take control of their journey by giving them the right information at the right time.
Simplicity: Cancer can overwhelm the best of us. Ankr (pronounced “anchor”) is fiercely patient-centric and simple to use so that you spend less time figuring out how it works and more time getting the help you need.
Trust: There’s lot of misinformation in the world and we’ve seen thousands of cancer patients and families get harmed by pseudoscience and miracle cures. We are driven to protect our users and get them the most updated and accurate information from reliable, scientific sources. Our team of patient advocates ensures that our content is unbiased but thorough. Finally, we go above and beyond to protect and secure your data using technologies and processes similar to those used by banks to protect your money.
When someone gets diagnosed with cancer, we (the health system) overwhelm them with important information. I always thought that there has to be a better way to give patients what they need, when they need. This multi-year process resulted in the creation of Ankr.DR. ARPIT RAO
Our vision is to get Ankr into as many hands as possible around the world and make the lives of cancer patients and caregivers a little bit better in a difficult time in their lives!
Here’s What Patients Say About Ankr:
When my father got diagnosed with lung cancer, we spent 5-6 hours in doctor’s offices. There was too much information – surgery, then chemo and then immunotherapy and my mom and I could not keep track of all of it. We found Ankr through a common friend and it had everything we needed. Especially useful were audio notes feature and the way the App guided us through his treatments. Thank you Ankr team!
