“As a caregiver, cancer survivor, and in honor of my sister Selma Schimmel, founder of Vital Options International and who died three years ago after 30 years of being a passionate patient advocate, I wanted to make sure that cancer patients feel supported,” says Debby Bitticks, Chairman Emeritus of Vital Options International and co-founder of Digital LifeCloud®. “In addition to discounting the price of Digital LifeCloud®, we are making The Cancer Concierge® (www.thecancerconcierge.org), a free organizing eBook based on the time-tested strategic system Selma used to manage her own treatment, available via our site.”

According to a 2015 AARP Public Policy Institute and National Alliance for Caregiving study, 9.5 million adults between the ages of 18-34 are caregivers. Strapped with job and family responsibilities, many rely on systems such as Digital LifeCloud®, which allows them to stay on top of caregiving responsibilities and manage important documents, even from afar.
According to Dorothy Breininger (a.k.a. “Dorothy the Organizer’), a best-selling author, problem solver and co-creator of Digital LifeCloud®: “I manage my life, the care of my elderly mother and sister, who is battling stage IV breast cancer, all the while traveling the world for work. I know that if I lost my purse or briefcase, I would still have access to my family’s vital information 24/7.”
Recent National Cancer Institute statistics show that of the approximately 1.6 million people diagnosed annually in the United States, most at some point will require the caregiving services.
