About Us

Manta Cares came from our founder Samira's personal experiences as a cancer patient. Samira was diagnosed a week after turning 30. As an AYA cancer survivor, she is on a mission to help patients, survivors and caregivers gain back control over our cancer journeys.

I was lucky - I had a lot of support from my loving family and wonderful community. Despite being relatively well-prepared (yup, that's a thing!) this was the most overwhelming 2 years of my life. Sometimes I still feel out of control. 

Planning help me and my loved ones know what is going on and what the next day/week/month will look like. Together we designed Manta Planner as a way to give back to this wonderful family that we now belong to.
