"When I first heard about WiTT I was drawn to
the innovative way they are addressing the problem all cancer patients face —
asking for help without the guilt. I
believe this platform will not only make it easy for patients to ask for help, but
will turn the 'burden' of asking, into patients giving others the 'opportunity'
to help them. I am excited to be part of
this journey and leverage my voice to have a positive impact on cancer
patients, especially the stigma associated with Anal Cancer," said Cross.
"I am incredibly grateful and honored to have
Marcia as an advisor to WiTT and help us have an impact on cancer
patients. Her insight as a patient
advocate, her commitment to helping patients navigate the stigma of asking for
help, and her advocacy work, will allow us to have a greater impact to help
patients as they go through treatment," said Rahul Mahadevan, Founder and CEO
of the WiTT Group.

The WiTT Group, Inc.
The WiTT Group, Inc. is focused
on solving the non-clinical challenges (financial and non-financial) patients
face as they go through treatment. The
company partners with a variety of organizations including non-profits, cancer
support groups, hospitals, providers, employers and church groups to use its WiTT Support Registry platform. WiTT’s
Support Registry platform de-stigmatizes asking for help by combining the
personalized needs of a patient with the simplicity of a wedding registry and
leveraging a financial tool to facilitate payments, thereby making it easy for
a patient to ask, but more importantly, making their needs visible to those
that want to help. This not only makes it easy for a patient to ask for
support, but it also makes it easy for those that want to support a patient to
know exactly what they can do to help. WiTT's
initial focus is on cancer care, but the platform can be used for all chronic
diseases. More information on the WiTT
