The Prostate Cancer Network
We built Progether to make it easier for patients and their families to find and share information about their prostate cancer, in order to compare treatments with other patients and to improve prostate cancer research.
A personalized web service
... for prostate cancer patients where they can educate themselves according to their exact disease state, and safely store and share their anonymous prostate cancer related data.
An educational platform
... where prostate cancer patients receive up-to-date and relevant articles tailored to their disease and enable them to get an improved understanding of their medical condition and take a more active role in managing their own care.
A decision-making platform
... where prostate cancer patients can compare their treatment options to others, get to know what therapies worked best for men matching their exact situation and what side effects they have experienced.
A research network
... to support cancer research. Your experience living with prostate cancer will help cancer researchers find better ways to treat the disease.
Progether is a Norwegian company founded by two prostate cancer survivors (Roger Larsen and Birger Magnus) in cooperation with the German registered voluntary association Prognostik e.V. (established by the leading prostate cancer researchers Dr Thorsten Schlomm and Dr Guido Sauter). The goal is to improve prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment.
Through collaboration with national and international urologists’, patients’ and research organizations, we promote an united voice for prostate cancer patients, as well as knowledge, good practice and information sharing between patients and research organizations.
Progether is supported by Innovation Norway, the Norwegian Government's most important instrument for innovation and development of Norwegian enterprises and industry. They support companies in developing their competitive advantage and to enhance innovation.
