About Us

When Lucas was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, his parents Brian and Erin combed the earth to find the right team to help him, but they knew nothing about clinical trials or published research.

They wasted months fruitlessly scouring the internet. Endless information and magazine “top doc” cancer rankings left them feeling lost. Meanwhile, Lucas’ cancer wasn’t improving and they needed a new plan.

A solution came when they put all those countless hours of research to work. By using data science, they compared information from the National Library of Medicine to find the most specialized doctors for their son.

Finally, Lucas got the care he desperately needed. Instead of feeling lost in a sea of information, they had a map, a compass, and a guide. Now they want you to have this too. CureWheel was created to help families like yours.

Frequently Asked Questions for Caregivers

How do I know if I am at the right center?

This will come down to your gut, but you will know a lot more if you are able to access better data. Data helps democratize your decision process. Data is the great equalizer. If you can unlock the data, then you can educate yourself and learn more about the current team you are working with. This will create more relevant questions and you can ask to have your child treated.

Why do clinical trials matter?

For fiscal year 2021 the National Cancer Institute was granted $6.5bn by Congress to fight cancer. This money is allocated to research and find cures for this deadly disease. Clinical trials are the forefront of medicine. The Primary Investigator is the person running the trial for the institution they work with. They have frequently received grants from governmental and philanthropic resources that selected them for the trial amongst a very large amount of applications. These trials are how medicine grows and evolves. Without trials there cannot be new treatments to cure cancer. Use your tool to find doctors that have been Primary Investigator for specific diagnoses, not just overall , but for the diagnosis you care about. The body of knowledge that exists in research entities is a great way for you to learn the most possible about options for treatment.
