Support for Cancer Patients

Putting you in control

Everyone’s cancer journey is different, individual. And with so much information to stay on top of, we know it can also seem overwhelming.  

The Cancer App has been designed to help you stay in control of your care, appointments, medications and contacts, with relevant, expert information specific to your cancer. It is our mission to make living with cancer that bit easier.

Easy to use, free to download, the aim of The Cancer App is to be useful. If you are living with cancer, we are here to support you. Help at hand.

How The Cancer App can help you...

All your important information in one place – on your phone or tablet!

Easy to use. Free to download.

Support for you - general and cancer-specific information.

My Appointments - helping you stay on top of your calendar.

My Medication - take the right dose at the right time.

My Contacts - Easy to input, update, manage, view and use.

All the information that you put into the app is safely stored on your phone or tablet, not on a server somewhere else. It is your information, and it is secure.

My Medication

Staying on top of your medications can be challenging. You might have different drugs and doses on different days at different times. Your medications may change or be altered in some way throughout your treatment.

Rather than depending on memory, The Cancer App helps make sure you’re taking the right medication at the right time, with easy to manage planning and reminders.

My Appointments

Cancer treatment can involve a lot of appointments. Stay on top of your care calendar – not only can you see what's happening next, but also keep notes and reminders and track of past appointments.

My Contacts

This is your A team. Your VIP numbers and emails. Easy to input, update, manage, view and use. List by expert type eg Oncologist, GP, Maggies Centre, Pharmacist etc

You can even phone, email or message your contacts directly from the app.

"The Cancer App is one of the most innovative apps I have seen.  I was able to upload all the information I usually carry with me in files on to this one comprehensive app."

Penny, Lung Cancer Patient

"If you don’t want to bother your medical team, you also have lots of information and support at your fingertips, instead of having to look through numerous bits of written information, and avoid the dangers of Google search. Well done"

Laura, Breast cancer patient

About The Cancer App

The Cancer App was the brainchild of William Yeoward, one of Britain’s leading designers.  His vision, endeavour and energy saw his ambition to help support cancer patients come to fruition.  William was a cancer patient just like you.  He saw the need for a modern solution to personal management of cancer care, and so The Cancer App, under the umbrella of the Screw Cancer Charity, was born.

William’s ambition was to “navigate an adjusted life”. To help living with cancer that much easier.

Through the generosity of many private donors, the app is free for all to use.

We are particularly grateful to Julia and Hans Rausing for their substantial and generous support - from the inception of William’s idea and through every step of the app’s development.  

Thank you William
