Founded in 1944, CancerCare is the leading national organization providing free, professional support services and information to help people manage the emotional, practical and financial challenges of cancer. Their services include counseling and support groups over the phone, online and in-person, educational workshops, publications and financial and co-payment assistance.
BodyMind Sessions created a branded mobile app for CancerCare which allows them to deliver a new range of services to their clients. The app features many educational programs created by CancerCare as well as hundreds of guided meditation sessions from the BodyMind Sessions library which target the needs of their community. Sessions focus on reducing the side effects of treatments, letting go of stress and anxiety, getting better sleep, coping with pain, easing depression, and more.
For people who suffer from cancer symptoms and treatment side effects, mind-body therapies, such as meditation, have been shown to help relieve anxiety, stress, fatigue, and general mood and sleep disturbances, thus improving their quality of life. - The National Institutes for Health
