Courage Health is a Public Benefit Corporation providing personalized cancer survival rates to patients, families, and the physicians of those battling cancer.

Trustworthy. Smart.

Courage Health uses the latest research and SEER data from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Cancer Institute (NCI).

Personalized.

We provide 5 year survival rates for individuals based upon their unique health profile.  Survival rates reflect the outcomes for people with a similar type of cancer and demographic profile.


Information can be shared with physician, family, or other loved ones.

Powerful.

For patients fighting cancer, knowing survival rates can help to map the journey ahead and prioritize what matters.

For friends and family members, understanding survival rates can help you to support those you love.

For doctors and nurses, we provide the most accurate, current survival rates from NIH's SEER database, a fast and easy interface.
