chemoWave is a health app that helps cancer patients track their activities and treatment experience, and provides people going through cancer with insights that enable them to work more effectively with their support team to better control the side effects and symptoms they experience during cancer.
Cancer patients don’t have to feel overwhelmed by chemotherapy any longer; much can be done to control what those with cancer experience while undergoing treatment. Many treatment side effects (like nausea, constipation, fatigue, hair loss, loss of appetite, dehydration, depression, etc.) can be significantly reduced, if not eliminated altogether.
chemoWave is a virtual advocate for cancer patients, a companion helping them to do everything in their power to feel better.

Ratings and Reviews
I love this app! One of the worst things about receiving a cancer diagnosis is the overwhelming feeling of hopelessness. You feel like there is nothing you can do. This app changes all that. There ARE things you can do, like tracking your eating habits, moods, energy level, side effects, etc. and communicating all of the information to your doctor. It not only helps you feel like you are more in control of your situation, but it also helps your doctor provide the most effective treatment possible. Healing becomes a team effort. Beneficial adjustments to your treatment can be made. God bless the creators of ChemoWave. It is a great tool that is helping change and save lives.
I learned of this app on TV & shared it with few friends who experienced chemo for the first time as well as another who's cancer returned. They were both pleasantly surprised how helpful this app was for their personal use (and being in control) as well as for their physicians who had valuable insight of their patient at their finger tips! Tracking symptoms and getting ahead of it actually resulted in less unnecessary medications! Win win! Chemowave puts the patient in control and ahead of the game by managing symptoms like nausea.
A great tool
Whenever I have gone to the doctor I never can remember exactly what I wanted to say. I find this app very helpful because it allows you to record what and how you are feeling in a particular moment each day so you don't forget between doctor visits. It's a game changer. Thank you ChemoWave.
