Indian Cancer Society, in collaboration with Roche Pharma India, has introduced the ‘Rise against Cancer’ a multilingual mobile application offering rich content in audio-video format on oral, breast, cervical, and lung cancer curated by leading doctors from across the country.
The mobile application, available on both Android and iOS platforms will provide comprehensive information and support covering emotional, and informational needs of the patients and their families dealing with cancer. It will also facilitate patients and their families with knowledge sharing events.
‘Rise against Cancer’ offers a wide array of features and functionalities. Users can gain access to the latest, relevant information on all types of cancer, their causes, symptoms, prevention, and treatment options. Connect and engage with a community of cancer survivors, patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals to share experiences, knowledge, and support. It is an extensive library of articles, videos, and resources to help users make informed decisions about their cancer journey.
It helps to have access to local and virtual events, support groups, and workshops to connect with others facing similar challenges. Further, it helps to stay informed with the latest news, breakthroughs, and research in the field of oncology.
The app will initially be available in English, Hindi, Marathi, Kannada, and Bengali, and is freely downloadable from the app store.
Indian Cancer Society has curated and produced all the content with support from more than 100 leading oncologists and will manage the app's operations. The technical application backbone of ‘Rise against Cancer’ has been developed with the support of Roche Pharma India. The core objective is to proliferate awareness about cancer, ensuring that conquering cancer becomes a matter of choice, not chance.

This app represents a significant step forward in our collective battle against this pervasive disease."
V Simpson Emmanuel, CEO & MD, Roche Pharma India, emphasized, "This collaboration with the Indian Cancer Society to develop 'Rise against Cancer' app brings me great joy as Roche Pharma is committed to improving the lives of the patients suffering from this deadly disease. In a world inundated with misinformation about this disease, our goal is to empower patients with accurate and credible information, arming them for their battle against cancer. Moreover, this platform will serve as an extended support system, fostering connections between patients and caregivers in their collective fight against cancer."
