Meet the Team: Chandler Groves, MBA

What brought you to the field of survivorship?

As a 26 year-old graduate student, I was diagnosed with (and survived!) spinal cord tumors. During my treatment and recovery, my family and I had to navigate impacts on my access to student health insurance and housing and the lingering effects of my treatment. I met the OncoveryCare team and was inspired by their vision for better survivorship care—the care that survivors deserve! 

What excites you most about the future of survivorship?

I’m excited about survivorship care that meets patients where they are. OncoveryCare builds relationships with oncologists, non-profit support groups, and other local community organizations to deliver the right care to survivors. Survivors shouldn’t feel alone as they navigate treatment and its impacts. I hope for a new survivorship care model that’s tailored to each patient and their community so survivors have the support they need to thrive.

What’s the best part of being part of the Oncovery team?

The team! The OncoveryCare team rallies around a real belief in a new standard of care for cancer survivors. From my first day, the team has been thoughtful, kind, and dedicated to building better survivorship care.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

It was always changing…when Discovery’s Shark Week was playing, I wanted to be a marine biologist, when I watched The West Wing, I wanted to be the President, and when Grey’s Anatomy was my go-to TV show, I wanted to be a surgeon. 

What’s your favorite way to spend a Sunday morning?

When the weather is nice, I like to go on a bike ride and enjoy the sun. I did a cross-country cycling trip in college to raise money for cancer research, and cycling has been a big part of my life ever since. When I’m not cycling, you can find me reading fiction or walking my (very old, very lazy) labrador, Tessa, around the block.
