Roberta Carson

Patient Leader

I started the non-profit Zaggo to help patients & family caregivers manage illnesses and injuries, after my experience caring for my teenage son Zach during his 27-month battle with terminal brain cancer. I realized patients & families urgently need practical, easy-to-use information and tools. Zaggo’s mission is to empower patients and families with the educational information, tools, and resources they need to become empowered, engaged, effective members of their medical teams for the best possible care. With an easy-to-use guide book and organizational tools, the ZaggoCare System is unique. 100% of profits are donated to pediatric brain tumor research in Zach's memory.
