Hi, we are
We’re glad you’ve found us - we are here to help you through the difficult, unfamiliar experience that is cancer. Whether you’re a newly diagnosed patient with questions about everything, a supporter trying to organize care, or a survivor seeking community, you’ve made it to the right place.
At OneVillage, we provide a space for everyone that has been touched by cancer.
Over the course of their lifetime, 40% of people will be diagnosed with cancer, and the remaining 60% will support at least 4 loved ones through cancer. So why isn’t there one place to find the resources, products, community, and support you need when cancer enters your life?
That’s why we are here.
Our mission is to inform, support and inspire cancer patients and their supporters throughout this journey by democratizing access to personalized content, tools, community and services. These are the resources we wish we had when cancer changed our lives.

came to be.
Meet Villager Ashley
In 2017, Ashley, our Founder and CEO, was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer. As she went through treatment she was surprised by the lack of modern, effective, online resources available for patients and the people who were supporting them.
“We live in a world filled with technology. It just didn’t make any sense to me that during one of the most difficult times of my life, there were no tools or resources available that didn’t feel depressing and clinical,” said Ashley. “I knew there were people like me who needed that community and support and so we decided to do something about it.”
Prior to founding OneVillage Ashley spent 15 years as a venture capital investor, building and scaling high growth companies creating new markets. She brings the leadership, network, and experience necessary to build this valuable community product, and is most excited about its potential to ensure that no one else ever has to experience the same loneliness, isolation, and fear that defined her personal journey.
Meet Villager Katherine
Ten years ago, Katherine witnessed her younger sister, Ellie, go through a terminal brain cancer diagnosis. As Director of Marketing and Communications at OneVillage, she hopes to provide comfort to people like her sister and parents.
“It’s hard enough to watch your loved one suffer. But having to worry about financial burdens, communicating and understanding doctors, and keeping your entire network updated? Even at a young age, I could see what a toll that took on my family” says Katherine. “I didn’t know how to find other kids that had the same experience as me. It’s a very isolating experience, but it shouldn’t have to be that way.”
Joining OneVillage with skills in PR, communications, and marketing strategy, Katherine helps the team reach patients and supporters through a hopeful, honest tone. Katherine is most excited to build a strong, authentic community that can support each other within and beyond OneVillage.
