Breast Cancer Care has launched the first app of its kind to help people move forward after a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The innovative Breast Cancer Care App (BECCA) provides trustworthy and tailored information and support for people trying to adapt to daily life once hospital treatment ends.
Bitesize tips are delivered daily to users as a deck of cards, letting them flick through ideas on topics like exercise, diet, hobbies and mental wellbeing whenever they want. They can then favourite the cards they are interested in and use these to support them in taking small steps towards approaching life after breast cancer with confidence.
The content of the app has been developed by Breast Cancer Care, with the support of healthcare professionals and women living with breast cancer to gain insight on the type of content needed. The charity found the content most women want is topical, breast cancer specific and sourced from other women with the disease.
The BECCA app can be downloaded now from the App Store, and on Google Play from next week2. Join the conversation with #CareApp
