Sawera Health Foundation
Sawera is a digital health initiative which helps children and their families to manage their everyday lives better around childhood cancer treatments.
Families with a child living with cancer face countless challenges. Treatment regimens for cancer types such as leukaemia are extremely complicated and include several cycles of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery. This complexity adversely affects the child’s life and has a profound impact on the whole family.
The Sawera Health Foundation is developing a personalised digital diary. It enables affected families to organise all treatment-related information including appointments and medication via an app – with the aim of improving their quality of life and communication with medical teams.
New functions for the app
The Sympany Foundation is providing funding to further develop the app. The focus is on developing functions that help to keep up with prescriptions and avoid gaps in supply during long periods of treatment.
The goal of the Sawera Health Foundation is to support children and families affected by cancer, both during and after the cancer treatment. Its mission is to improve the health and overall quality of life of those affected using digital aids.
The Foundation was established in 2021 by a family whose son was suffering from cancer.
