Someone With Opens its Doors to Create Online Marketplace for Breast Cancer Products and Services
Date:5/9/2011

s and Public Relations for UUNet, Jagemann previously founded Online Office Supplies and eCommerce Industries (ECi2), which she sold via Friedman, Billings, Ramsey Group, Inc. (FBR) for approximately $90M in 2006. Today, ECi2 stands a $100M software company that leads the industries it serves.

The exact cost of each individual's breast cancer treatment varies from woman to woman, perhaps topping $300,000 or more in a worst-case scenario. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that the amount of money women with breast cancer (who have employer-sponsored health insurance) spend out of pocket exceeds $6,500.  A survey by the American Cancer Society indicates that one out of four people with cancer has used up all their personal savings and close to one in 10 has declared bankruptcy, sometimes resulting in patients cutting prescriptions, not going to their doctor, or not getting preventive services. "If pooled together, the hundreds if not thousands of dollars spent on flowers, balloons, and sympathetic, yet unproductive, gifts from friends and families could have a meaningful impact on their out-of-pocket medical and mounting financial burden," commented, Ms. Jagemann.

Among Someone With's web features is a patent-pending patient Registry™ that works like a baby/bridal registry for breast cancer patients.  Once registered, So
