Our Team

We could not, and would not be what we are without the incredible people that make our team. From doctors, nurses, holistic practicioners, to chefs, specialists, and even an interior designer as a founder – our team is diverse, but joined by one goal: to spread awareness about the importance of early screening in cancer detection, and to make the lives of cancer patients a little bit better.
