Why I made Manta Planner?
Patients & CAREGIVERS LOVE MANTA PLANNER!
This planner gave me back control during the most overwhelming moments of my life.
Patient Advocate, Bay Area Hospital
We've tried making this for our own patients for the last 8 years. It's one of the most thoughtful, well-executed patient tools that I believe will revolutionize patient care.

It's comprehensive, structured book that helps you make decisions on the treatment. It helps you document the various opinions from doctors, with the medications, and any subsequent changes in the treatment.
It's one of the most thoughtful gifts I received during my cancer care. This diary has become a part of my daily rituals.
Based on Science
Tracking leads to better outcomes!
Manta Planner is based on science. We know from Dr. Ethan Basch's work that those who track symptoms tend to have better outcomes. We know from behavioral science that being organized and systematic leads to feelings of control. From BJ Fogg's work we know that subtle nudges can help us learn new behaviors (e.g., not eating certain types of foods). Lastly, we know that staying grateful and hopeful can improve our ability to ride this cancer train.
Why is it call Manta Planner?
Manta Planner is named after Manta Rays. These beautiful, elegant rays have learned to harness the power of the ocean to swim through even the most tumultuous weathers. They are graceful and gentle, even as they glide through a storm.
In Spanish Manta also means cloak or cape. Cancer patients and caregivers sometimes dawn a cape to transform into a hero, and sometimes need a cloak to shelter from the storm. Here's hoping that Manta Planner can serve as your cloak through this journey.
