Little did I realize that when I started this website there would be people from all over the world reading it. This came to me in an e-mail. It is fantastic information and I asked Jelle if I could please share it. Since there is not as much information on blood cancers as some of the other types we need to inform and help each other! However, this would help anyone with any type of cancer! If anyone else has information they wish to share please e-mail me at Jane.M.Biehl@gmail.com
Thank you so much Jelle!
With great interest I’ve read your blog on Cure Today on cancer fatigue. My name is Jelle Damhuis, 27 years old and I live in Utrecht (Netherlands). I am reaching out to you in hopes that you could help me share some important information. Unfortunately I suffered from cancer myself and I want to share my positive experiences with the app Untire with you. At age 21, I was treated for a spinal cord tumor and last year January was diagnosed with a non-hodgkin lymphoma. After a successful treatment with chemotherapy I am now in complete remission. After treatment I suffered, like 30-40% of the cancer patients and survivors, from extreme fatigue. During a walk through the city of Utrecht, I came in contact with the company Tired of Cancer and their app Untire.
Untire is an app which helps you understand cancer fatigue, gives you exercises to reduce stress and tips to improve your mood and energy. The app was developed by a team of psychologists and researchers specialized in psycho-oncology with the mission to help as many cancer patients and survivors as possible. Untire is free to download and use for everyone. You can find more information about the app on the website www.untire.me or watch this short video: : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsrEJS96iC4
Currently I am reintegrating in to work by being part of the Tired of Cancer / Untire team. My goal is to make as many people aware of this as possible, as Untire is a really valuable app. Through your blog I would like to share this ‘digital medicine’ so others can find help just like I did. I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences with the app and it would be great if you could share Untire with others affected by cancer related fatigue. We are open to other suggestions on ways we could spread the word together.
Enjoy your day and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
With kind regards,
