Feeling disorganised, confused, isolated or overwhelmed by a cancer diagnosis? You are not alone.

CancerAid was founded by two oncologists to assist you in managing cancer. This app is designed to help you take control over physical and psychological side effects from the moment of diagnosis, through treatment and during recovery.

The app lets you keep track of your diagnostic and treatment information, access medically reliable information to learn more about your condition, track and manage your side effects, nominate your care team and gain access to a motivational community, all in one place.

Use the app in the comfort of your own home, in the waiting room or out and about. CancerAid is available when you need it the most, anywhere and anytime.

“I find myself referring back to the CancerAid app to do what it takes to have a better understanding of all these body changes and feels.” Rosemary, patient in remission

Be Better Equipped to Discuss Side Effects with Your Doctor

It’s ok not to be ok. The CancerAid app makes it easy to record and monitor symptoms and medication use over time. We understand that it's not always possible to log symptoms when they occur so we have made it possible to track in real-time and retrospectively.

Research has shown that patients who record their symptoms and share these with their clinical care team experience improved outcomes.

If you are not experiencing any side effects or symptoms, great! Let your care team know that you are feeling well by entering a low severity in the app. Logging your wellness regularly is as important as logging your symptoms, and helps physicians make decisions on your treatment.

“The CancerAid app was the one place I wrote down all my symptoms and how I felt. Since I always have my phone with me it saved me from having to remember every fortnight what I needed to say to my oncologist.” - Kerry, cancer survivor

This app integrates with Apple’s HealthKit and CareKit allowing you to make your activity visible to your medical care team at connected hospitals.

Share Information with All Your Loved Ones at Once

Who’s in your corner? You can nominate your care team and loved ones with the Champion feature to keep them in the loop of how you are going. In your CancerAid journal, you can share your experiences and milestones in a secure place available to you and your nominated Champions.

“A lot of people are separated by distance from someone they love who is going through cancer. Champions is a great feature that allows us to keep track of treatment and prognosis.” - Zelda and Jeremy, mom and son

Support for Caregivers

Cancer is not a one man disease, and CancerAid recognises that caregivers also need useful tools and support through the cancer timeline. If you are caring for someone affected by cancer you can request to follow their progress in the app so that you know when they need you the most.

The app is filled with resources for caregivers. The in-app community lets you read other carer’s tips and experiences, the cancer profile holds information on specific cancer types, treatments and what to expect from them.

“I am very impressed with the information, care and support available in CancerAid. I can’t thank you enough for helping my husband” - Sarah, caregiver

A Trusted Cancer Resources

CancerAid is endorsed by leading Cancer Hospitals, Health Insurance Providers, and Cancer Charities. CancerAid has been awarded Best Startup Creating Social Impact by Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group and Best Global Startup by Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple.

The app has been highlighted as a flagship health app by Apple and has been featured by Shark Tank Australia, TechCrunch, CNBC and The Huffington Post.

“I love the platform for both patients and oncologists alike, and the passion and competence of the founders blows me away” - Andrew Banks (Shark Tank investor)

A tool I wish existed when I was diagnosed

I can't say enough about this App and this company. There are many cancer resources available across the Internet and in local support groups, but CancerAid is special. It provides a full range of information resources and very well written experience stories by cancer community members. There is so much great information and inspiration in these stories for cancer survivors and their caregivers. But one of my very favorite features is the ability to add "champions" to your account. Champions are your support team. Once they join your account, they will be able to see the symptoms you log. If you are tired or nauseous, they'll see it. There won't be any need for the always awkward "how are you feeling today?" question. They'll know how you feel and what they can do to support you. Many cancer survivors are reluctant to share these details in direct conversation. CancerAid makes communication so much easier and more effective. If you are a cancer survivor or a cancer survivor care giver, you really should give this App a try and see if it works for you. I would have loved to have this app when I was diagonosed with prostate cancer 15 years ago.

Very impressive cancer app 😍

I absolutely love this little app! I wish it was around earlier for me and my family. The community is great, and the articles really compelling to read 🙏🏼 The personal diary and side effects journals are helpful, and I really like how I can share them easily too. Hoping that appointments are included soon but other than that this app has really hit the mark. Kudos to the team and canceraid!

Thank you!

I really like the app! I think it is a much needed tool for all those affected by cancer and wish I had known about the app earlier. Not having an outlet and not being able to communicate with others with similar situations makes it even harder. I am thankful for your app and hope to be able to connect with others. Thank you so much!
