cancer support for longer, healthier lives.
Cancer is a complex genetic disease. Unfortunately, navigating cancer care can be just as complex, leaving many feeling confused, isolated and unsure that they are getting access to the best treatments available for their specific cancers.
Cancer Guardian is a comprehensive support program that leverages genomics and technology to address real-world challenges while managing cancer. It is the first-of-its-kind program that solves the problem of awareness, affordability and access to services than can help improve prevention and outcomes.
Developed by Wamberg Genomic Advisors (WGA), Cancer Guardian is a first-of-its-kind benefit program designed to provide affordable access to comprehensive DNA testing and cancer support services that have typically been limited to those with financial means and connections to experts at genomic testing institutions. It is WGA’s vision that actionable genomic solutions will be available to everyone, everywhere, to reduce the burden of disease.
Cancer Guardian is not an insurance plan or a provider of medical care. Instead, Cancer Guardian provides support to patients in accessing resources, technologies and services that are not readily available through standard coverage channels. There are no deductibles, no co-pays, no denials, no waiting, and no additional out-of-pocket expense.
Services provided by Cancer Guardian have been specifically curated from the nation’s top cancer institutions and CLIA certified clinical laboratories. These partnerships are closely maintained to ensure exceptional, personalized support for Cancer Guardian members.
