How We came to be
In 2018 I found myself fighting for my life in a system designed specifically to exclude me. And while I argued with doctors to get the care that I needed, ultimately paying for my own tests to confirm what I knew, I wondered, “What happens to all the people that do not know how to or cannot afford to get to the right answer? What would happen to my grandma?” This led me to begin designing a solution.
However, as I considered the millions needed to build, I was keenly aware that founders that looked like me receive less than 2% of available $. I could fight within the current startup funding system or I could create a whole new system, WeDemption.
