Get Control of Your To-Do List

The list of things that need to happen when you’re diagnosed with cancer is huge…and keeps changing. There’s so much research to be done, doctors chosen, appointments scheduled, records requested, insurance disputes, disability claims, trips to the pharmacy, someone to pick you up after appointments. Your life is taken over by the endless task of coordinating care.

But the world doesn’t pause after a cancer diagnosis.

When I ask Savor Health clients how we can better support them, the answer is always ‘come clean my house.’

The laundry keeps piling up, the dog still needs to be walked, the utilities need to be paid, the kids still need rides to parties and someone to make dinner. What about work? How are you going to pay for all of this?

Ashley Reid founded Wellist to help you shorten your to-do list. Wellist helps your support network take over the little things so you can focus on what’s really important.

One of the biggest issues faced by people with cancer is that you don’t know what other people can help you with — and people who want to help you don’t know how.

This not knowing what to do makes things more stressful for everyone — and can have serious consequences. A strong social network of informed caregivers provides patients with a level of care that can’t be matched by social workers and home health aides.

Forty percent of health outcomes can be attributed to social and economic factors, like safe housing and healthy food. “If you can’t get ride to your appointment, you can’t get your cancer treatment,” explains Reid. Wellist is your key to non-clinical care.

Wellist addresses those factors two ways: by connecting patients to reliable service providers and helping patients get the financial support they need.

Patients don’t always know what they’ll need until they need it, leaving them to scramble to find service providers. Doctors are restricted from recommending for-profit services, so patients and caregivers are left to wade through listings on their own. Wellist solves both of these problems by helping patients and their families understand what services they might need and providing verified listings with reviews from other patients.

Once patients have figured out what services they need, there’s still the matter of paying for it. Wellist makes it easy to share a list of the services needed so friends and family can make donations. All of the money donated — 100% — goes directly to the patient.

Covering the cost of parking or make sure groceries get delivered is something that’s easy for loved ones to chip in for. People want to help and are happy to know what you need. And it’s one less thing for you to worry about.

Wellist is a young company, but they’ve got support from MGH Cancer Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Quest Diagnostics. Thanks to these partners, Wellist is free for users.
