His Story

Rahul Mahadevan, Founder and CEO of WiTT (We're in This Together) is a Cancer survivor and patient advocate. In 2021, when going through his own Cancer journey, he met patients who were choosing to delay or avoid treatment because they did not have the non-clinical support they needed.

He started WiTT to help address the non-clinical (financial & non-financial) challenges patients faced as they went through treatment with the hope, that by removing these "activities of daily living" challenges, patients could focus on what was truly important — their health.

Rahul has over 23 years of healthcare experience, having worked for multiple vendors (Philips, Siemens) and providers (Stanford Hospital & Clinics, Stanford Children's) during this time. He has a passion for technology, digital health, and oncology and is focused on developing innovative solutions to impact the lives of cancer, and all chronic disease, patients.

His Journey

I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in January of 2021. My personal journey made me want to make a difference to those patients that are less fortunate than me, by developing a platform to help cancer patients deal with the financial and logistical challenges they face as they go through treatment.

I started WiTT to focus on helping patients navigate the "activities of daily living" and the non-clinical challenges they face as they go through treatment. As I went through my own journey, I personally struggled with the following:

  • I needed help but did not want to be a burden to others — so I did not ask
  • My needs changed constantly, so not only did I not know what I needed help with, I didn't like people offering help I did not need
  • I had a lot of people who wanted to help but wrestled with the question, "Tell me what I can do" — I didn't know what to tell them in the moment
  • I met a lot of patients in the waiting room and in support groups who were anxious if they would get the support they needed and wondered if they would be able to be there for their family as they went through treatment

His Solution

Our platform de-stigmatizes asking for help and makes it easy for those that want to help to help those they care about. The platform does the following:

  • Makes it easy for a patient to ask for the help they need (think of creating post-its on a whiteboard with whatever you need help with)
  • Makes those post-its visible to those that want to help and make it easy for them to help
  • Provides an easy way to transfer money from them to you so that you have the financial flexibility
While we are starting with Cancer, the platform will be available to all patients who need help, irrespective of diagnosis.

Our goal is to help all those patients less fortunate than us have the financial and logistical support they need as they go through their journey.

I honestly think this is a great resource! I've noticed that others including me have a hard time simply asking for help. Feelings of embarrassment at times for me so I think it's easier to ask and have the choice to make it public or not!
