Now loved ones can help make cancer patients harder to kill

Patients and their supporters can now approach recovery through creativity and positive participation with an innovative award-winning mobile app called Cancer Dojo aimed at shifting a patient’s mindset from helplessness, to being actively engaged in their own healing, which is shown to build resilience.

Often people don’t know how best to support their loved-ones facing cancer, but as of this month supporters can help patients, by gifting the app via the Cancer Dojo website.  The app is then sent to the patient to download and begin their positive and vital recovery journey. Developed by Conn Bertish, who was diagnosed with a rare form of adult brain cancer which he beat using this creative methodology, The Cancer Dojo mobile app is like a cancer coach in your pocket that guides cancer patients through 16 levels of positive behaviour change methodology and gamification to build their resiliency and strengthen their immune function over time.

Version 1 of the app enlisted the help of cancer patients, designers, animators and filmmakers from all over the world to create a simple, informed, user-friendly journey that teaches people how to actively engage with their chosen treatments, stay motivated, generate their own meditations, learn how to visualise, be more mindful, eat better, live better, laugh more and ultimately become happier, healthier and harder to kill.

Cancer Dojo is available to download from mobile app stores or you can send it as a gift to someone you care about by visiting www.cancerdojo.com. The first three chapters are free and the full app can be purchased for R850 once you have completed level three.
