breast cancer

A guide for using Kith + Kin in partnership with Living Beyond Breast Cancer

No matter where you are in your breast cancer journey, managing and organizing all of that material — 
recommendations, lab orders, prescriptions, test results, bills, receipts, referrals — can feel like a full-time job with no clear way to keep everything organized and accessible.

Kith + Kin exists because we know the “binder” isn’t a great solution, but it’s the only one you’ve had - until now.

Replace that heavy binder with an easy-to-use app!

Kith + Kin puts you completely in control of your information, from how you organize it to how you share it. All so you can make the most of your time and focus on what's most important to you.

Organizing Your Kith + Kin

Create Notebooks for Medical History & Diagnosis, Tests & Procedures, Treatment, Providers, Insurance & Billing, and Resources.

Here are some tips for using Kith + Kin to help manage your journey:

Medical History & Diagnosis

  • Your diagnosis, including the specific cancer type and stage
  •  Date you were diagnosed
  • Create a notebook detailing your medical history

Tests & Procedures

  • Notes for each type of testing, e.g., bloodwork, biopsy, ultrasounds, etc.
  • Copies of test results and pathology reports can be added as Smart Items so they can easily be referenced and found later


  • Notes on treatment plan, including start and end dates and treatment benchmarks
  • Chemotherapy dates, drug names and doses
  • Radiation therapy dates, sites and doses
  • Notes for each visit, including who you spoke with, the date and time, your questions and the answers you received


  • Create Smart Items for each practitioner you see; you can include their contact information, a link to their patient portal (make a note of your password here, too!), their address and any notes you want to add
  • Snap a photo of business cards and add them here, especially if you receive a card for a referral or recommended provider but haven’t established care with them

Insurance & Billing

  • Upload documents or photos of any communication with your health insurance company. (You can take screenshots of emails or live chats and add those just like a photo.)
  • Add copies of any cost estimates, bills and payment receipts


  • Add links to websites, blog posts, online communities and other helpful resources, such as Living Beyond Breast Cancer
  • Share selected notebooks with trusted members of your support circle so they can directly add resources without overwhelming you with texts, emails and other messages
