An all-in-one companion for those impacted by cancer, documenting their journey from beginning to end.

Designed for cancer patients, their caregivers, and advocates to stay organized through this journey, the Manta Planner has gone through four iterations, starting with the first prototype from our founder's early days as a cancer patient seeking a tool to organize her treatment and recovery process. Since then, this planner has undergone revisions spurred by user feedback and input from leading cancer research organizations, advocacy groups, and other stakeholders.

This all-in-one companion will help you stay organized, keep track of treatment options, track and manage symptoms, while mindfully checking in with your emotions. Doubling as a journal, the Manta Planner includes sections where you can write about your thoughts, feelings or experiences during treatment. Inside you'll find:

  • Frameworks to know how to make decisions around treatment
  • Activities to support your symptoms and nutrition
  • Nudges to help you heal through treatment
  • "Your Space" pages for your thoughts and reflections
