“… one woman that was diagnosed with the same breast cancer mentioned she was having issues with tingling in her hands and feet from the chemotherapy and I told her I had the same issue and it sounded like she had neuropathy. I told her my oncologist put me on medication for it and it worked. Through this app I have helped at least one person and that feels good.“

Writing and creating a narrative of our journey is proven to help us to cope with cancer.

“I was not brave enough to share all my feelings in my ordinary social media because I didn’t want to be a burden for friends, family. So I decided to download the War On Cancer app and even that there’s people I never met I know that we have the same experience, thoughts and feelings.“

“Since we started War On Cancer I’ve learned a lot about myself, but also about others going through cancer. As a best friend and a loved one I can only support and I shouldn’t try to fix ‘the problem’.”
