What are people saying about Bluem?

“Bluem will empower your patients with easy and immediate access to the many colorectal cancer supports and educational resources available in a centralized space. This allows the care team to remain treatment-focused but still empathetic to their every need from diagnosis or at any stage of survivorship. As a physician, Bluem is the first item I provide patients when diagnosed.”

–Dr. Megan Lambeth, MD, Caregiver to Josh (Survivor)

“When Andy was diagnosed, there was so much research to do. Having Bluem as a single point of contact to so many great organizations and resources makes things so much easier for new patients.”

–Kim Schoolcraft and Karen Fogarty, Compliance Managers, Caregivers to Andy (Stage IV CRC Patient)

“Having a resource like Bluem would have been invaluable to me when I was diagnosed. Once I heard the phrase, “You have cancer,” the next few weeks became a whirlwind of doctors appointments, CT Scans, and blood draws. I had no idea where to turn to find people going through the same thing as me or resources to explain net steps. Bluem solves that problem for so many newly-diagnosed patients and makes the whole process a lot less scary.”

–Stefanie Rein (Survivor)
