A new cancer app, designed to help cancer patients manage their treatment journey, is scheduled for worldwide release on 20th May 2017 coinciding with Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
Timing the cancer app’s release with such an important fundraising campaign made sense to the app’s developer, Mrs Sadaf Khurram, Founder and Manager of CyberGenie Solutions, a Ballarat-based technology business.
Suitably named, GenieCanHelp will be launched as a free app for android users at a Biggest Morning Tea event in Ballarat hosted by CyberGenie Solutions.
“Making life easier for cancer patients and caregivers was our goal. Feedback from a preliminary survey, and our own experiences, indicated that an app with a positive focus on healing, during what can be a very tough time for cancer patients, was needed”, says Sadaf.
GenieCanHelp is easy to use and designed to help cancer patients approach each day feeling organised and in control.
“GenieCanHelp offers useful tools and coping strategies across different areas of the patient’s life, including handy ways to store important contacts, manage medications, keep appointments, create lists and take notes.”
“Plus, we’ve included an interactive mood tracker to help monitor and reduce feelings of stress and worry”, says Sadaf.
Sponsors are being sought to ensure GenieCanHelp remains as a free app for cancer patients and caregivers, and to help cover the costs of ongoing improvement releases, maintenance and hosting.
In return, sponsors will be acknowledged on the app’s various marketing channels.
GenieCanHelp is in development for Apple devices and will be launched later in the year.
