Our Mission

At Controlling the Odds, our aim is to equip individuals diagnosed with cancer with the comprehensive information and guidance they need to navigate a clear path back to wellness.

Matt and his Mum Angela

Founded by Matt Straight, our commitment stems from a deeply personal experience. Matt's own frustration and heartbreak, fuelled by the lack of accessible, quality information when his mother faced a misdiagnosis and ultimately lost her battle with pancreatic cancer, became the driving force behind our mission.

We are determined to ensure that no one else must endure the agony of wasting precious weeks or months searching for crucial information that could save their lives. Together, we stand as a beacon of support and knowledge, dedicated to helping you control the odds in your favour.​
