When my wife was diagnosed with cancer, I watched her go through six months of gruelling chemo,
consume thousands of pills (and often struggle to remember if she’d taken them), contend with
two neutropenic infections, and endless blood transfusions, biopsies, scans, and appointments...
the list goes on!
I was so struck that despite being seriously unwell, she didn’t want to be a nuisance.
She became so sick of being sick that we would regularly hold debates over whether she really
had to let her nurses know about the side effects she was suffering, because she didn’t want to go
back to hospital for more prodding.
Fifteen years of consumer health-tech experience meant I couldn’t help but spot the clear
opportunity to support people going through treatment by creating great software and wearable tech,
providing greater control and useful tools to help deal with the raft of things that need managing.
I wanted to connect people with a cancer diagnosis to their family and friends, and to their
clinicians, to give peace of mind that if something needs attention, the people that matter know
about it quickly and can act proactively, before things become more severe.
Careology was born.
