My Cancer Pal was inspired from cancer patients not having the opportunity to access their own personalised and tailored cancer treatment management tools on a daily basis. We believe EVERY cancer patient has the right to be educated, supported and empowered throughout his or her cancer journey.
In Australia alone, one in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85 (Cancer Council Australia, 2014). Cancer patients report information as their biggest unmet need.
My Cancer Pal was designed and created by a team of successful specialised nurses, with over 30 years combined nursing experience in education, oncology, intensive care and critical care nursing. Their passion lies with empowering, supporting and educating their patients to reduce cancer treatment side effects, ultimately decreasing anxiety and stress levels, and improving their quality of life.
