Zaggo, Inc. is a non-profit organization borne out of the experience of its Founder and President, Roberta Carson, who was thrust into the role of caregiver for her son Zachary during his 27-month ordeal with pediatric brain cancer. Zach lost his battle in September 2007. Since Zach’s death many people have asked Roberta to share the story of how she coped – what information, tools, and resources helped her to manage her family’s medical ordeal and reduce their stress. These discussions brought to light the urgent need for a practical, easy-to-use product and service that educate patients and family caregivers about how to navigate through a medical ordeal and become an integral member of the patient’s healthcare team.
With the creation of the ZaggoCare™ system, Roberta Carson has created an entirely new approach to reduce the stress and empower patients and their families to get more from their medical care.
Zaggo’s mission is to empower patients and their family caregivers who are involved in a medical ordeal with the educational information, tools, and resources they need to make informed healthcare decisions and be more effective caregivers.
Zaggo seeks to reach patients and caregivers directly, as well as through various other channels such as healthcare professionals, hospitals, corporations, health insurers, voluntary health agencies, and nonprofit healthcare associations.
As a charitable organization, 100% of the profits from the sale of ZaggoCare will be donated to innovative brain tumor research.
