My Breast Cancer Journey” and “Cancer Journey Supporter” free apps are now available in Spanish and are available for download at
Expert data from the American Cancer Society indicates that cancer is the leading cause of death among Hispanics with breast cancer being the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Hispanic women. That’s why “My Breast Cancer Journey,” a free app and part of the Cancer Journey App solution series created by Willowglade Technologies, will be a critical tool in helping patients that are battling the disease and why the company has translated the popular apps into Spanish. The Spanish versions are available now in the US as well as Spanish speaking Latin American countries.
“It has always been our goal to have everything we do available to the widest possible audience. Making these apps available in Spanish is a big step toward achieving that critical goal,” said John Papandrea, CEO and President of Willowglade Technologies. Every study shows that breast cancer is less likely to be diagnosed at its earliest stages in Hispanic women as compared to non-Hispanic white women. As such, the need for post diagnosis educational information becomes even more acute for this segment of the population. We believe that providing our technology in Spanish will have a strong impact on quality of life indicators and outcomes in the US, and as more people come online through Latin America we expect to see those same results.”
The Cancer Journey Apps series of apps provides educational content to cancer patients that is personalized to the individuals’ diagnosis, treatment, clinical and emotional status. Using patented algorithms, new content is provided throughout the journey so that the patient has access to the right information at the right time.
Patients can also engage with invited friends and family to create a private social network, where the patient can share their personalized educational content, discuss the content, have one on one conversations and engage in group discussions. Public support networks are also available in the app. The app allows patients to record and graph medical tests, and record non-cancer conditions that allow the creation of a comprehensive clinical picture of the patient.
Cancer Journey Supporter is a companion app for other Cancer Journey Apps. Once a supporter receives an invitation from a cancer patient using My Breast Cancer Journey, the supporter app allows the loved one to review educational content that has been shared with them. They can also participate in a private social network as well as conversations about the content with the patient and other supporters invited to review the content.
