Co-founded in 2017 by Dr Gandolf Finke and Dr Jan Simon Raue, Mika provides a mobile app that works as an assistant for cancer patients and their families to receive suppport during the therapy processes based on their unique condition.
Developed in partnershio with the Berlin university hospital Charité and University Hospital Leipzig, the app provides information on diagnoses and
treatment options, nutritional advice, relaxation exercises and concrete support for everyday living with cancer. In addition to background information and
motivating stories from former patients, users can use it to document their physical and mental wellbeing, complaints and side effects in a patient diary, which they can reference in later discussions with treating physicians.
