The CancerAid App

We built the CancerAid app to empower patients to take back control of their diagnosis. The CancerAidTM app will always be free to patients and their loved ones.

  • Read up on the latest research, resources, and stories from other patients. All content provided to you is evidence-based and carefully vetted.
  • Easily track the severity of symptoms, medication effectiveness and side effects to help your care team make better decisions.
  • Keep a summary of your diagnosis and treatment information to refer back to when you need it.
  • Nominate your champion to monitor your progress in the app.

What's the evidence behind the app?

  • Individuals who are more engaged with their own care have better outcomes1. The app enables you to better understand your care, self-manage your treatment and learn from others in a similar position.
  • Patients who share their symptoms their clinicians experience a better quality of life, have fewer emergency visits and can even live longer2. In consultation with hundreds of patients, we built a symptom tracker that is one of the most widely used symptom reporting tools worldwide.

App testimonials

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, Survivor

"As her champion, this app enables me to see her daily symptoms which is very helpful. We speak everyday by phone or text however I was probably only hearing half of her symptoms. This is also a great tool for Dr’s appointments as you often forget important information."

Cathy, Caregiver

“CancerAid was extremely attractive for the reasons that I felt empowered and in control to face cancer and I could look at the information remotely”

Lisa, Survivor and Patient Advocate
