We are primarily funded by donations and work largely on a volunteer basis to carry out this important mission. We therefore welcome any kind of support to realize our common mission. Support us now, because together we can achieve much more for the young affected and their families!

With YouCan! - You can.

The YouCan! App supports adolescents and young adults with cancer from the time of diagnosis through the entire course of treatment with a variety of scientifically based target group-specific functions.

Promote processing

With the help of regular documentation and recapitulation of your own treatment process, daily mood, and symptom queries as well as age-appropriate psychoeducative content and information about your illness, the YouCan! app makes it easier to deal with the ups and downs of the disease and helps those affected to gain new courage.

Stronger together

With the YouCan! app teenagers and young adults can search for other affected people and share ideas with them. This allows you to encourage and support each other and benefit from the experiences of others.
Scientifically based
The YouCan! App is based on a scientifically founded app concept, which is oriented towards the latest findings in the field of psychooncology.
Protection of sensitive data
The YouCan! app meets the latest and highest security standards in the areas of data protection and data security.
Target group specific
The YouCan! app is adapted to the specific problems and needs of adolescents and young adults with cancer.

Developed in cooperation with those affected

During the entire development process, we regularly create feedback as well as suggestions and requests from those affected. These findings are always taken into account in the further development of the app in order to suit the YouCan! app even better regarding the needs of adolescents and young adults with cancer.

The YouCan! app is available throughout Germany
