It is rather ironic that I am posting this article and several links about helpful apps for cancer patients/survivors. I am very techno-phobic, but have come to appreciate the value of my electronic toys. It surely is easier to have the phone at hand instead of driving around, looking for a pay phone. And I really like being able to download books on the Kindle and only carry the iPad, rather than six books, when I go on vacation. It has not been in my wheelhouse, as they say, to extend my appreciation of apps to cancer care. That needs to be changed.
First I am giving you an overview from CancerNet that, if you read the entire article, lists a large number of potentially helpful apps. I will then add links to more information about several of the most useful.
