We are a tech company on a mission to radically improve the mental health for everyone affected by cancer.
We are You.
We are the one undergoing treatment, we are the friend, the partner, we are the survivors, the terminal, the chronic, the lifer, the partner, the parent and the colleague.
You’re not alone, we’ll fight together.
CEO & Co-founder, diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia
After being diagnosed in 2015 at 28 years of age, Fabian began documenting his cancer battle on a blog, which made him realise the true power of storytelling. Sharing his story gave him a sense of purpose that he had never felt before. This, together with a strong urge to help others affected became the foundation for War On Cancer.
COO & Co-founder, best friend and loved one
When Sebastian saw what positive impacts storytelling had on Fabian’s mental health, as well as himself, he conceptualized an idea for a global platform. In May 2016, the founders launched the first version of War On Cancer and within weeks the platform had storytellers from more than 20 countries.
Chairman of the board Co-founder, friend
Later in 2016, War On Cancer’s first investor, Moha Bensofia, met Fabian. The Costa Rican would within moments understand that War On Cancer was on to something different.
“When this 6’5” tall guy walked in and said that the looks of pity hurts more than the chemo I changed my perspective on cancer entirely. I knew I needed to help out.”
