GRYT Health was started and is run by cancer patients, survivors, caregivers and researchers. We’ve been in the trenches, and know what it means to be alone. To be scared. To lose our identity. But, we don’t assume we know your experience. What we do know is everyone’s experience matters and there is power in numbers.
We are here to support one another and build each other – and the industry – up. We foster honest conversations and embrace vulnerability. We encourage the sharing of experiences and resources. We will be advocates for you – and teach you how to be an advocate for yourself – to ensure your voice is always present and you are heard.
We are here to be a bridge between those that create treatments and those that take treatments. Our goal is to elevate humanity and trust and use your voice to enhance drug development, access and education.
WHY DID WE CREATE THIS COMPANY?
When I was 30 years old, I told my parents I didn’t know how much longer I wanted to be alive.
The reason I said those impossible words is because I had just survived cancer, for the second time. Because I was a researcher, I felt I should have been able to ask for help and find what was available, but I was too overwhelmed by cancer and too full of shame by what was happening to me to be able to ask.
Everyone at GRYT Health has been personally affected by a cancer diagnosis. This is our way of healing ourselves and helping others who are at those same places we each know.
GRYT is a healthcare company that was started by patients and caregivers, for patients and caregivers. We work with bold companies who put the patient and caregiver at the center of everything they do. Together, we are moving healthcare forward, with the people and organizations we respect most.
