History of the app
We wanted to know exactly what support and resources kids with a parent with cancer had, so we commissioned Dr Claire Wakefield (of Sydney Children’s Hospital and the University of NSW) to undertake the largest comprehensive worldwide literature review. What she discovered was that there is a distinct lack of age-appropriate information about cancer, and that it was an issue that urgently needed to be addressed.
Looking to fill this gap, we held focus groups, consulted with health professionals and other not-for-profits to develop our very first app, aimed at answering the most common questions kids have about cancer. Providing this information in plain English to kids without confusing or scaring them was also an important focus for us.
The app is developed by 2and2 and is proudly funded by the Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation.
