The Cherry project seeks to address the information needs of young cancer patients, their parents, and health care providers. It aims at helping the patients to understand various aspects of their disease and treatment, and allow them to assess and record their disease related quality of life. It uses elements of social media to offer a meeting point with the physician and peers. Information is presented in a way that is both understandable and appealing to young children in school age and adolescents. Preschool children will be studied as a separate user group to address their needs and possibilities to meet them. The Cherry system wants to utilize Internet and mobile technologies to benefit patient outcome.
