Screw Cancer - The App

Diagnosis of cancer can leave you very confused - and more than a little frightened - uncertain of what will happen next.  It is not that everyone isn't tremendously helpful but your thinking  is muddled and the ability to process can  be hard.  Vital information seems to be everywhere but not in one place.


The Screw Cancer App is designed to provide you with a single place on your phone where you can store information specific to you and your cancer treatment.  


The App is personal to each patient.  A quick swipe and up comes your key information, all in one place.  Vital contacts, your appointment schedule, help and support and who to call if you are worried, scared or just feeling low.

  • Your personal information including insurance and NHS details
  • Your key medical contacts, support network and emergency hotline
  • Your appointment schedule
  • Help and support - links to useful information about living with your type of cancer


Initially we have developed the App for patients with colorectal cancer but it is our intention to broaden the scope and support to cover all types of cancer eventually.  Many of the key issues are the same but each individual illness does also have its own particular challenges.


The App has the backing of clinical providers in the field of cancer care and we are actively seeking patient feedback to help inform how we can continue to improve our support for cancer patients and their families.


Screw Cancer - helping patients to find clarity.

Maggie's

Screw Cancer are delighted to support Maggie's and the amazing  practical, emotional and social support they give to people with cancer (and their family and friends), following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks.

Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie's Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need.

They are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well, places where qualified experts provide emotional support, places to meet other people, places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea.
