About Cancer Central

Cancer Central, Digital Leaders HealthTech Innovation of the Year 2019 is a new and growing digital platform. It has been created to provide a central source of information for those affected by cancer and those who care for them. A breast cancer survivor, Avril Chester founded the company after facing first-hand the many challenges in finding targeted information, resources and support during her own cancer journey. Whatever the question or needs, Cancer Central aims to signpost businesses, services and charities - locally, nationally and online - who can offer advice and support.

Over time, Cancer Central will become the go-to place to find cancer support. Support including but not limited to, benefits advice, insurance products, counselling, complementary therapy, respite care, hats, wigs, lingerie, skincare, financial help, nutrition advice, local societies or communities, meals on wheels, books, blogs, forums, local hospital taxi services – all based on geographical location and cancer type.

Created through a pioneering combination of corporate sponsorship, community support and crowdsourced innovation, Cancer Central has built significant momentum in the 12 months since it was officially launched.

“Cancer Central has been created from over 25,000 donated hours by 200+ individuals and 30+ organisations, with major contributions from TechFINIUM, ROQ and Evouke. We are right at the start of our journey but over time this centralised resource will become a rich go to place to find products, services and support” said Cancer Central Founder & CEO, Avril Chester.
