An appy award winner, the GRYT Health Cancer Community App is the only cancer community that empowers people to be in charge of their own health. Our patient support app for cancer patients is built by patients and caregivers for patients and caregivers.
It’s a digital cancer support group in your pocket.
Unlike other apps, your information and data is never sold.
Start by creating your profile. This is where you will fill in details such as your name, age, location, and any specific cancer details you wish to share.
Any elements you fill in help match you with others that share similar characteristics in the community. Knowledge is power, and there is no greater way of collecting unknown knowledge than asking others who have gone through what you've either gone through yourself or are staring down.
You are also able to fill in about me details as well as list favorite resources you find valuable.
This section of the app will display users of the community who match the same characteristics that you filled in with your own profile.
Tap on the avatar to read a member's public profile to learn more about them.
When you're ready, tap "say hello" to send the user a message.
Matches will update over time when new community members join and fill out their profiles.
Messages / Chatrooms
Your text interaction will take place in either a 1:1 text chat or in a chatroom setting.
For 1:1 chats, you will receive a notification on your device when you receive a chat from a community member. In 1:1 chats, you also have the functionality to share images.
In a general chatroom setting, all users can access and participate in chats.
