What happens when you are diagnosed with cancer? How do you find the right information and support, and communicate to your friends and family? Is there a difference between you and the normal population of sufferers due to your age?
This session is the result of 10 interviews with young breast cancer patients to try and answer some of these questions and proposes a model for information, applications and services that will meet their needs.
This activity is important because as we age, we will use a combination of online and offline resources to manage the diseases of our children, parents and ourselves. We will need to reach out for support with our peers and communicate to our networks of family and friends, and increasingly we will do this via digital means.
