William's story

My name is William Yeoward.

I am a designer living and working in London. As many do today I am living with cancer and have been for a while. I have found my experience to be a test of my inner self. Cancer and I have at last come to an arrangement that seems now to work.

My resolve is to make a difference where I can.

After diagnosis and two surgeries I left hospital with many emotions, mainly confusion and a dose of fear... and unsure of what exactly was going to happen next. Life without a map! Home with information that is not clear. It's not that anyone isn't helpful, informative or without care. It's simply that one is muddled and vital information seems to be everywhere but in one place.

There needs to be an App, specifically designed for each patient, uploaded on departure from hospital, to replace confusion with clarity.
