Our aim is to empower people living with cancer to achieve the best possible health outcomes through positive behavioural change.

Our values.

We want to make sure people affected by cancer have access to up to date resources and guidance. That’s why we keep track of the latest medical research and let it guide us when creating accessible user-friendly tools for the patient of the future.  

We are constantly working on innovative ways to assist our patients and partners in embracing positive behavioural change for a healthier tomorrow, today.

For us, purpose is not a buzzword - it's in everything we do.

We put patients and people first
We set people up for success and better outcomes.
Trust and integrity is key
We are responsible risk-takers. We care about results, but not at the expense of others and their privacy.
Empathy always wins
We listen and understand team members, patients and partners to the best of our ability.
Collaborative by nature
We always make an effort to produce the best possible results. We help each other out.
Making ourselves accountable
We swim as a team, we sink as a team. We don't run from responsibility.

Born out of a dedication to better
support patients

CancerAid was founded in 2015 by cancer specialists who saw the struggles their patients went through during their care programs.

Co-founder Dr Raghav Murali-Ganesh saw the potential for technology to assist his patients with tools needed to successfully complete treatment. After initial evaluation the founding members of the CancerAid team noticed that patients who were empowered through support networks and up-to-date resources achieved better health outcomes – together, these experiences helped shape what we offer at CancerAid today: science-based patient support programs and an empowering digital companion for cancer care.

We know cancer is a challenging experience – mentally, physically and practically – and comes with a whirlwind of emotions, but that doesn’t mean people affected by cancer should be excluded from engaging in their own care. In fact, we know that individuals like to lead healthy lives with the help of our technology. Currently, the CancerAid app is top-ranked in Australia, the UK and in the US and is used in 127 countries globally by over 23,000 people.

CancerAid was founded to empower people to reduce the hidden burden of cancer; the overwhelming, isolating and confusing symptoms and emotions that comes with a diagnosis.
