Concept

Live Better With is doing exactly what it says for cancer patients.  It collects and curates hundreds of recommended products into a one-stop online market place. Live Better With offers hundreds of products that are meant to be beneficial for those with the disease, to save them the hassle of shopping around. These include acupressure bands and specialist teas that help people deal with nausea and vomiting, to scarves and scalp treatments for those suffering from hair loss.

How they’re disrupting

Whilst money and time is rightly invested into treatment, research and curing cancer treatment, there is an opening for the day-to-day, non-medical support of patients. Live Better With fills that gap. They have built an online platform, cataloguing over 800 products that cover a huge variety of potential wants and needs of patients that are available in one place, with a focus on new and developing technology. They have a platform that suggests products based on how the patient is feeling, something unique to this area.

Disruption potential

Some 15 million cancer cases diagnosed worldwide each year. As a unique marketplace for cancer patients that provides non-medical care, it has the potential to become an essential tool.

Investments and future

The company has received $2.4 million seed funding, including lead investment from Fig. With more and more of us seeking health solutions online, Live Better With is well positioned to be a major online marketplace for cancer patients. In addition, the company is poised to provide products for those suffering from other illness’ but with similar symptoms.
