Breast cancer is a shock diagnosis that many women feel left alone with. This app gives those affected emotional support.
On average, one in eight women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives. This diagnosis arouses the most violent feelings and brings prospects of life to collapse. In addition to the stress of the treatment, affected women often struggle with depression, fear of the future and lack of understanding from other people. Many worry about the extent to which the illness affects their family life and feelings such as sadness, anxiety, social isolation, low self-esteem and the fear of dying overshadow everyday life.
Emotional support via app
That is why there is now an app to help breast cancer patients deal with their disease on a daily basis. EmotionSpace offers a sheltered place in which feelings can be captured. A few clicks are enough to sort out the emotional chaos, to define possible triggers and to understand them better. In addition, patients can find out what helps them in the respective situation and share this with family members and friends anytime and anywhere.
Exchange with other affected persons
The app also offers the option of contacting other breast cancer patients. A list of regional patient organizations and information events in the vicinity offers the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with other affected persons.
