How do you create an anti-social social network for cancer patients?
Research also shows that your social support during cancer treatment can increase your survival by 50% - that your relationships can have a physical as well as emotional benefit. (‘Social Ties Boosts Survival by 50 Percent’, K. Harmon, Scientific American, 28 July 2010.) The trouble is, the sicker you get from your cancer treatment - the harder it is to stay connected to all of these powerful networks.
‘Touchpoints’ is a social networking app – flipped. It’s so private, secure and sensitive to the patient’s feelings, that
it’s almost the ‘anti-social’ social network. It helps a cancer patient maximise their support network and the Cancer Council to support their cancer journey.
