Cancer Empathy Network
After the end of treatment, cancer patients often describe that they feel “like they have fallen off a cliff”. This project addresses this issue and attempts to solve it by helping people after cancer treatment connect with people with specific knowledge, such as other cancer survivors, carers, or doctors. Users can also add their family members and friends to create their own empathy network to notify their close ones whenever they are in need of support. Additionally, there is a suite of tools, handy objects with different textures, that can be used to soothe the user while waiting for a connection.
