Free App and Helpful Resource

I recently learned about a new website and free app called This is Living With Cancer. The program is designed to share the stories of all kinds of people who are living with cancer and their caregivers. Additionally, there is a free app to download that helps to manage life after cancer.

The idea is to give patients and caregivers a single place to save and organize all of their health-related information. It enables people to stay connected to their communities, to send requests to family and friends for assistance as needed, to track mood, pain, sleep and to integrate with other fitness apps and wearables and to keep track of questions and other information from appointments. Seems potentially valuable, and, remember, it is free.
