Amazing support app

The CancerBuddy app is so innovative and was just what I was looking for. It makes it so easy to connect with other cancer survivors, patients, and caregivers. Love that I can filter people who live in the same state as me or have the same diagnosis I had!! I have nothing but good things to say about the app. I’ve met a hand fun of survivor that I’m so glad to call friends now because of the CancerBuddy app!

Great in theory…

Wonderful idea but the app doesn’t seem to work well. It took lots of time to create the profile due to crashing and not loading properly. Once I was done I tried searching the groups but nothing showed up when I typed in the keywords box. All that shows up is the preloaded groups. Finding buddies isn’t very easy either. I can’t search by state. And when I do get results from the filters, they are minimal. So either there’s not many people using the app or it’s not loading properly. Either way, I wish it wasn’t so hard to use. I’ll be looking for other options that are similar.

The Healing Power of Community

When my Dad was diagnosed with AML and underwent a bone marrow transplant, it was difficult to find people who could related to our experience. Cut to Cancer Buddy. My Dad and I are able to connect with other patients and caregivers. Hear their experience, strength and hope. The power of community and these relationships have been paramount in my Dad's healing and my own mental health as a caregiver.
