A digital health start-up has won an Appy Award for its cancer support app.
GRYT Health’s Stupid Cancer App won the award for “Best Non-Profit App” at this year’s Appy Awards.
The Stupid Cancer App was launched last year to provide instant, anonymous peer support and tailored information to anyone affected by cancer. Users complete a short profile and are then connected with others based on their similar experiences. They can also take part in moderated group chats and programmes which are hosted by experts in their field. The app has had over 500,000 interactions and is now the most used peer network and resource platform in oncology.
The annual Appy Awards are dedicated to acknowledging the creativity and excellence app design throughout the industry.
Dave Fuehrer, co-founder and CEO of GRYT Health. Said: “GRYT recognises the value of building authentic human connections. Connecting to others who ‘get it’ and building a strong, reliable network where patients, caregivers, and all stakeholders can contribute and be heard is critical to improving health outcomes and experiences. We are honoured to be recognised for our work and incredibly thankful to the members of our community who are working hard alongside us to change the lives and futures of people impacted by cancer.”
