CanSurround, a Wilmington-based startup that has created a technology enabled solution that reduces distress and creates emotional well being for people living with cancer, won top honors last month at the Doctors 2.0 & You conference on the campus of Cité Universitaire Internationale in Paris.
CanSurround was one of seven digital health start-up finalists competing in the contest, which required a live presentation to a 5-person international jury.
The award-winning presentation was made by CanSurround co-founder Meg Maley, RN, BSN, and CanSurround advisory board member Liza Bernstein, who, in addition to being an ePatient advocate and social media consultant, is also a 3-time cancer survivor.
“This recognition is very special and exciting for all of us on the CanSurround team,” said Maley.
CanSurround is a personalized, innovative web and mobile experience that delivers phase-based (diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, etc.) psychosocial information and intervention via a creative, multi-media technology enabled platform.
CanSurround was incorporated in Delaware in 2013 and the official commercial launch is slated for Fall 2015.
