Co-designing an app with people living with cancer to help them take back control of their lives

Macmillan Free on the AppStore

My Organiser provides a convenient way for people with cancer to save all their important treatment information in one place. The app allows people to record appointments, contacts and medication information and it also offers useful tips and cancer information.

Working in an agile way with weekly sprints, we quickly developed a prototype that Macmillan and their dedicated group of people living with cancer could feedback on at the end of each sprint.

As a charity it was important to Macmillan that we would put forward the most cost effective solution. One of the requiremnts was that it had to be coded in a language familiar to Macmillan’s in-house digital team so that they could to carry out further work and updates themselves. The app was developed in HTML5 and Cordova for both iOS and Android.

At the time of launch, My Organiser was the first planning tool designed exclusively to help people living with cancer take back control of their lives, and was featured in ‘Best New Apps’ on the App Store.

Great app

This is a great app that allows you to be organised and have all your Cancer information in one place, no more scrabbling about for appointment cards/letters. No more remembering names of medication when you need to let certain people know. No more having to try and remember a consultants name. If you have Cancer or care for someone with Cancer, then this is for you.
