War On Cancer is launching its second-ever Health Study in the War On Cancer app, aimed to understand how to foster emotional resilience in female breast cancer survivors in the UK. In partnership with FRAME, a study conducted by King’s College London (KCL), it is now possible for members of the War On Cancer app to become eligible to partake in a study that trials a new way to support women who have experienced breast cancer in fostering emotional resilience.
Health Study: Fostering emotional resilience in women who have experienced breast cancer
Previous research has shown that people who are treated for cancer experience low mood, worry, anxiety, and depression. By partnering with FRAME, a Research Project at King’s College London, War On Cancer’s latest Health Study aims to contribute to research on how female breast cancer survivors in the UK can foster emotional resilience after experiencing cancer.
By making it easy for cancer research institutes to access real world cancer patients through an in-app survey in a place they already hang out to share their cancer stories and support each other, cancer research can move forward more quickly with a more diverse range of real-world, patient-reported data. In doing so, War On Cancer is bridging the gap between patient experience and cancer care and making it possible to effectively align the future of cancer care with the needs and wellbeing of everyone affected by cancer.

Second partnership with global research university institute
In September 2020, War On Cancer released its first study in collaboration with Karolinska Institutet to understand how cancer patients are being impacted during the global Covid-19 pandemic. The patient-reported outcome data, which hadn’t been accessible to any researchers or academic institutions prior to this Health Study, helps researchers at Karolinska Institutet improve cancer care throughout the waves of the pandemic.
Just two months later and War On Cancer is releasing this study in partnership with King’s College London. The demand for understanding patients and informing research through real-world data is at an all-time high, and War On Cancer leverages its patient-centered app and technology to push for patient-centered and diversified cancer research, while at the same time making it easy for research institutes and pharmaceutical companies to access a large number of people affected by cancer around the globe.
