Health Studies

Choose to participate in health studies and improve the future of cancer healthcare. By participating in optional health studies and actively sharing information, such as symptoms experienced during treatment, perceived quality of healthcare or quality of life experienced after treatment, you’ll play an important role in shaping the future of cancer healthcare.

Mission

We aim to democratise and normalise cancer in order to radically improve the mental health of everyone affected by cancer. We’re building the world’s leading cancer support app, connecting people during and after treatment with others that can relate. Helping those affected by cancer process, psychologically and emotionally, their experiences and enabling anyone affected by cancer to participate in health studies to improve cancer research and cancer care.

Founder’s Story

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.

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.

Sharing his story gave him a higher sense of purpose which he had never felt before
