CANCERAID IS YOUR MVP CHAMPION AND IT’S FREE
CancerAid is a FREE app that helps address issues cancer patients experience. It is the digital companion, travelling with a patient from the moment of diagnosis, through to treatments and into survivorship.
“I am very impressed with the information, care and support available in CancerAid. I can’t thank you enough for helping my husband and I will be passing this information on to friends in a similar situation to myself” - Sarah (caregiver)
Designed by oncology physicians in conjunction with patients and caregivers, CancerAid has quickly become the most comprehensive cancer resource available globally. The app provides information for over 150 adult, pediatric and rare cancers and their treatments.
“I find myself always referring back to CancerAid, to do what it takes to have a better understanding of all these body changes and feels…” - Rosemary (cancer survivor)
Randomised evidence has shown that cancer patients who track and record their symptoms can have improved outcomes. CancerAid is the first cancer app globally to allow for symptoms tracked in-app to be made available for care teams in the hospital.
“The CancerAid app is the one place I write down all my symptoms and how I feel. Since I always have my phone with me it saves me from having to remember every fortnight what I needed to say to my oncologist, and they also have access which is great! - Kerry (cancer patient on treatment)

HELP YOUR CLINICIAN HELP YOU
CancerAid is designed to be used in conjunction with your clinician and is ultimately as much a tool for them as it is for you. Ask your clinician to assist with compiling your cancer information and treatment data, then facilitate your cancer journey with them via CancerAid.
“CancerAid assists me with clearer communication with my patients, and it saves the need for them carrying paperwork in between appointments” - Paul Hu (Oncologist)
The app has been featured by Apple, Shark Tank, TechCrunch, CNBC, The Huffington Post and Variety.
“I love the platform for both patients and oncologists alike, and the passion and competence of the founders blows me away” - Andrew Banks (Shark Tank investor)
Launching in reputable health systems worldwide like Cedars-Sinai Health System, CancerAid has fast become the number 1 cancer app in the world and is helping 20,000 patients across 53 countries.

ABOUT THE DEVELOPERS
CancerAid is the brainchild of two oncologists and a team of 16 dedicated and passionate individuals who care about improving the lives of those affected by this awful disease.
We have updated the symptom list view! Now, when you open your symptom journal, you can view all medications and notes for each symptom you track.
We have also updated the Journal tab. Now, when you go to the Journal tab, you will see your Symptom Journal first, and then your Personal Journal can be accessed by the journal icon in the top left hand corner. This way, it's easier for you to keep track of your symptoms. We know that tracking your symptoms helps you be more in control in your care, helping you have better quality of life and in some cases even live longer.
As usual, we’ve squashed some bugs, and improved some things under the hood to make our app faster and more reliable for you.
Ratings and Reviews
Breast cancer survivor
I am 4 years cancer free
Double mastectomy chemotherapy radiation hysterectomy and left with horrendous nerve pain that has crippled me and basically knocked the wind out of me
As a paitent I never found any cancer group helpful
The whole time I found concentrating on distracting myself with keeping busy and go as more in deep breathing meditation and yoga deep water running and hydrotherapy Being treated also by a physiotherapist I also fostered rescue dogs to help me get out of bed and not cry all day in pain
All you want to do is what works the best for you which is taking care of your pain and joints
I found getting involved in cancer groups or getting dressed in pink to do fun runs for charity is just time taken away from rehabilitation
Your whole world is getting back to being strong
One stop shop App
I’m so impressed by the CancerAid app. It really is a one-stop shop for patients and caregivers, providing access to resources, other services and an opportunity to link into a broader support community. It’s very user friendly and overall a fantastic resource.
As a doctor, I know that the journey from cancer diagnosis to treatment is a complex one, and I find that this app has a useful place helping people through that journey. It has lots of useful, relevant and easy to understand information. Highly recommended
