Cancer

Country of origin: USA

Create to Heal app developed by the The Women with Wings Foundation helps cancer patients with stress reduction techniques. Stress is a major reason for inflammation and adds to the disease burden in cancer patients. This app has 4 guided meditations, 10 music tracks, 36 pieces of art and 60+ inspirational messages which cancer patients can employ in their day-to-day practice. The app claims to have been tested in many hospitals and cancer centers over 5 years, with hundreds of cancer patients, survivors and their families as users. This will be a good tool to recommend to patients battling with cancer.
