CancerAid is a mobile app that empowers cancer patients to navigate their journey to recovery. The app connects patients with their medical practitioners by delivering personalised and reliable cancer and treatment information. It supports patients by providing a tool to help them stay organised and cope with what is an overwhelming experience
A team of oncologist doctors wanted to help practitioners support their patients through a frightening experience. Over the course of their work, they noticed that medical practitioners were challenged with conveying complex information to someone that has been just diagnosed with cancer. They wanted to improve this experience by providing a tool that would deliver accurate facts and trustworthy advice and eventually help empower patients to make informed decisions and manage expectations.
