The right places and tools

There are tools, resources and services out there that can help you each step of the way. We can help take the pain out of it all.

CAN.Recall App

Patients diagnosed with cancer are confronted with vast quantities of life changing information at a time of great stress. They are also under pressure to communicate details of their condition and treatment to many family and friends.

Our app can help you recall the important details, and communicate them effortlessly.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are conducted in a series of steps which investigate the safety and efficacy of new cancer treatments and new drug combinations. The ultimate aim is to discover what the best standard treatment is, and whether a new treatment is better than existing ones.

Trials do not always focus on drugs, radiotherapy and surgical approaches, but as a rare cancer patient these are probably the ones you will be most likely to participate in.
