War On Cancer is here to radically improve the mental health of everyone affected by cancer.

Fabian Bolin

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 and how sharing his story helped him cope with his ‘cancer trauma’. Sharing his story helped him to process what he was going through, emotionally and psychologically, but also gave him a sense of purpose that he had never felt before. This, together with a strong urge to help others affected by cancer, became the foundation for the War On Cancer app – a social network aiming to radically improve the mental health of everyone affected by cancer.

COO & Co-founder, best friend and loved one

When Sebastian saw what positive impact writing had on Fabian’s mental health, as well as himself, he conceptualised an idea for a global platform – a place where anyone affected by cancer could connect with others that understood their experiences. In May 2016, Sebastian and Fabian launched the first version of War On Cancer and within weeks stories were being shared by people in more than 20 countries worldwide. Today, War On Cancer is an app, a social network, available for anyone affected by cancer, during and after treatment, as well as their loved ones.
