Many people are impacted by cancer
Many people are impacted by cancer – directly or through someone near to them. The fight against cancer affects both physical and mental health, commonly leading to feelings of social isolation, loss of identity, clinical depression, and even PTSD. These feelings and conditions are often undiscovered and undiagnosed by healthcare. This is not because physicians and healthcare staff do not care, but because they do not always have the right tools or the time and resources to take note of and diagnose them.
More than 65,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in Sweden each year. Many more are impacted by the disease. We asked ourselves if we could help these people get better support and at the same time provide assistance to healthcare.
