The Onco’Zine Brief is generally studio based. However, a number of social broadcast programs and podcast will be brought from international medical society meetings in the United States and Europe.

In addition to the regular programming, our presentation team will produces many hours additional programming to be distributed as part of The Onco’Zine Dossier via iTunes, YouTube and a number of public and commercial radio stations in North America and around the world.


What We Need & What You Get

To succeed, we seek US $ 375,000.- to cover our initial development and launch (this includes facilities, key employees for the development of programs and editorial services and training). Following our launch, an additional annual budget of US 695,000.- is required for ongoing (editorial) program development, production and broadcast.

This budget allows us to:

  • Develop and produce a ‘Public Radio’ styled program syndicate to local radio stations in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean  as well as other international networks;
  • Report the latest developments in the treatment of patients with cancer and hematological diseases from international meetings, including the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the annual meeting of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), the European Cancer Organization (ECCO), and many others;
  • Interview Key Opinion Leader/KOLs and Oncology/Hematology Experts;
  • Review and discuss issues related to patient welfare and health, including insurance and other relevant subjects’
  • Discuss some of the latest developments from science and research – leading to new ways of treating patients;
  • Create new jobs and broadcast training or apprenticeship/intern opportunities;
  • Build up a unique team of content experts (and allowing them to developing their broadcasting talents);
  • Offer listeners/readers higher quality information resources focused on all aspects of cancer and cancer treatment.

Each program includes interviews and stories ranging from personal stories from cancer survivors to cancer research, diagnostics, treatment & prevention and the business of cancer care.
