Mobile app: MY alma
A mobile application for every woman with metastatic breast cancer
If you are a woman with metastatic breast cancer, we have made a tool to have information and support… in your hand.
We know that the diagnosis of metastasis is a fact that brings many changes in the lives of patients and can create a new reality.
Guided by the needs of patients with metastatic breast cancer, the Hellenic Association of Women with Breast Cancer “Alma Zois” has created a mobile app that aims to become a useful tool for every woman with metastatic breast cancer.
The main axes for the design of the application are the information of the women with metastatic breast cancer on the issues that concern them, their support through useful practical tips for their daily life and the communication with support structures.
Through the app, women with metastatic breast cancer have the opportunity to be informed about the latest medical data, points of interest such as Hospitals, Health Structures and Pain Clinics, to receive useful tips for managing their emotions and the side effects of their treatment, to set goals that improve their quality of life and see suggestions for improving their life.
The mobile app “MY alma” is designed for both Android and IOS mobile devices and is already available, completely free of charge from Google play and the Appstore.
The Mobile app “My Alma” is implemented with the support of the international SPARC award given to “Alma Zois” through the collaboration of the Association for International Cancer Control (UICC) and Pfizer Inc.
Scientific supervision: Oncology Clinic of the University of Thessaly
