Practical stuff like working, finances, etc

Working with cancer.  “We help both employees and employers to manage cancer and work. We advise employers on how to successfully manage cancer in the workplace, and we advise individuals affected by cancer on returning to work, remaining in work or finding employment at any stage during or after cancer treatment. Our work with commercial organisations subsidises our work with many cancer charities. Find out more by watching a short film about the work that we do.

No More Grapes is a fabulous website which allows someone who is going through cancer treatment, to set up an account and invite friends and family to that account, from which he/she (the cancer patient) can share information about their treatment, share a calendar to allow people to offer help when needed, keep friends and family updated and generally allow friends and family to help as and when needed.

Chemo Wave is a free mobile app designed to navigate you through your treatment journey. It tracks your symptoms, mood, and activities – and then goes further to give you personalized insights to help you take control of your chemotherapy experience.
