Colors of Cancer (COC) was in need of a predominantly internal facing software solution to enable its main programming service, The Cancer Care and Support Program (CCSP) to properly track its benficiaries' needs and progress. CCSP provides direct and indirect support services to cancer patients and survivors. The CCSP objective is to become a medium for cancer patients and survivors, especially those of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities, to gain access to cancer treatments and services. Moreover, CCSP facilitates support groups for its beneficiaries, in safe and trusted environs with other individuals experiencing similar situations. COC regularly conducts fundraising activities in order to supplement its operating budget and to increase program capacity. In ensuring effective programming service, COC is partnered with a number of medical institutions, clinics, companies, and other organizations across the Houston, Texas area. Together with its partners, COC is continuously identifying and on-boarding qualified individuals for its program, and to that end, COC has been awarded the Gadfly Project software development of their much-needed digital platform. Remote/virtual accessibility of the platform by COC and its representatives, will allow increased ease of tracking beneficiary needs and progress, introducing critical operational efficiencies to COC processes. The Gadfly Project development of this web-based software solution will enhance COC's internal accountability and productivity, and enable COC effectiveness in the delivery of service. COC's subsequent accelerated ability to direct more of its resources toward proactively pursuing its core tenets of helping even more beneficiaries, is in ultimate alignment with the purpose of The Gadfly Project's Maggie's Grant.
