About Us

Iris is closing the gaps in care and gaps in society for people affected by cancer.

Powered by technology, delivered with empathy.

Iris was custom built to expand access to care and improve the quality of life for people living with cancer.

Our Approach

Cancer isn’t just physical. It’s emotional too. That’s why we’ve gathered a team of oncology experts to support the human experience of navigating a cancer diagnosis.

Our Why

We believe where you live shouldn’t determine the care you receive. We see a future where excellent cancer care is available at home, in the community, and with your doctor.

“When you can find someone who gets it, it’s life changing.”

Bethany, cancer survivor and Iris peer mentor
