From the devastating moment of diagnosis, patients and families are faced with an overwhelming volume of information as they navigate highly complex journeys under unimaginable strain and pressure.

Where young patients are involved, parents undergo the additional heart-breaking challenge of how to communicate information to their child in ways that will be accessible and un-threatening.

The Chartwell Children's Cancer Trust is supporting a new tech powered solution that will give children and families fighting cancer easy access to comprehensive resources in one easily accessible place through their phone or tablet on an inspiring new app.

This user friendly app will contain dynamic and engaging education resources including clinical information, details and explanation of procedures, practical tips and advice, where to seek help with financial assistance and specialist support., and links to research and clinical trials. The app will also include real life testimonials from children and families who have gone through the same situation.

The app will be written using a combination of written text, animation and short videos, and presented in a friendly, accessible and interactive way for specifically for oncology families.
