About the Personalized Medicine Foundation
The mission of the Personalized Medicine Foundation is to help individuals impacted by a cancer diagnosis understand the growing role of genetics, genomics and precision medicines in the treatment of their cancer and provide a community where rapidly advancing treatment information essential to personalized cancer care can be accessed and shared in a safe environment. This has become increasingly important as cancer patients defer or delay cancer treatment as a result of the pandemic this year.
In 2020 record numbers of cancer patients lost access to traditional information sources, and their doctors as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the government response. In fact, 2020 has become the single greatest health care crises ever facing cancer patients. As cancer patients turned to the internet in record numbers PMF programs served over 1.8 million individuals in 2020 as requests for PMF programs and services grew.
