Gather the health of your cancer.
Predicting if the treatment will work:
As an example, some types of cancer are chemo resistant, but most doctors don't check to see if yours is one of those before they start you on chemo. They typically do this after you have done 6 months of chemo and failed.
We just can't understand why today's standard of care is determined by the location of the tumor, not the genetics of the tumor. But we can change that.
We can do this using blood.
Or samples from your cancer.
Genomic Testing helps you get the fingerprint of your exact cancer cells, because all cancer cells aren't built the same. This allows you to dial in the right healing approach... and predict if some treatments won't work for you.
MOJO Health wants to be careful not to overpromise and under-deliver.
We do not have clean data yet to identify what every cancer pathway means. But until we have this data for every person who gets cancer and map this to their outcomes using different approaches, we never will.
This is what MOJO Health is working on....

Predicting if the treatment is working:
Why wait until the end of the cycle to see if it is working?
For many cancers, we can track cancer cell counts using blood tests along the way. That means instead of waiting until the end of a 6 month chemo cycle to see if it is working, you can predict if chemo will work after one or two sessions.
How do we know this works?
Because MOJO Health exists.
These tests are how our founder Julie Stevens could inform her oncologist she was chemo resistant and move to immunotherapy after enduring only two chemo sessions.
Why would anyone want to do chemo for fun?
You wouldn't, so use this information before and during treatment to see if any blood markers will be a good indicator of treatment effectiveness for you.
There are two ways you can measure to see if the treatment is working:
you could measure how many people are likely to be at the party by the number of invitations sent.
You could measure how many people were at a party by the number of cans in your recycling .
