Who, How and Why?
Tobias Tree is open for specialized doctors and researchers. The participant must be authorized by
an institution. This authorisation must be renewed regularly. The system detects when an
authorisation is about to expire. The participant and the institution will then be contacted.
Participation in Tobias Tree is free of charge. No doctor or institution should have to opt out of participating for financial reasons. Apply directly here on our website. If you want to recommend Tobias Tree to a colleague, please
direct him or her to this website, or send us a note and we will invite your colleague.
Specialist doctors in general already have established contacts with colleagues nationally and
internationally by specialist’s conferences and e-mail lists.
But speed and relevance in these forums is likely to fail. Doctors are drowned by e-mails and an emergency
message might not get immediate attention.
With Tobias Tree the question can be sent to a relevant focus group, and the time needed to
reach any kind of result through a regular e-mail list would far exceed the time between alert and
answer using Tobias Tree.
The idea came to me during my son Tobias long struggle with a rare form of leukemia
A struggle that ended on October 18th 2016. During one of several long periods in intensive care, in a situation when the doctors didn’t know what had caused the acute, life-threatening complication, I desperately asked one of the doctors:
“Why not just send a question out to the world?
"I often talked to Tobias about my idea. He was very positive to it and encouraged me to try to make
it a reality. During his struggle, which he lived through with admirable strength, courage and
positive spirit, he often said that if someone else could at least benefit from all he went through,
then it wouldn’t be totally in vain. He also gave his consent to me naming my idea Tobias Tree.
For me it is a matter of course that I will spend the rest of my life to make sure Tobias Tree will grow
and flourish in order to save lives. That I have promised my son."
