Untire – About us

How The Untire App Came to Be

Tired of Cancer’s Untire App is based on many years of experience in face-to-face therapy and online therapy with hundreds of cancer patients and survivors who suffer from extreme fatigue. Thousands of hours were spent developing (read more about the development on Lovie for Good) the Untire app with a team of IT developers, researchers, and cancer specialists in the field of psycho-oncology. We use theories and techniques from scientifically proven cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, positive psychology and physical exercise interventions.

Our Business Model

The app is a subscription model in order to keep the app sustainable. This decision was made to ensure the user experience is about Untire’s cancer fatigue support – not about ads or upselling features or content as is often the case with free apps. All users can download and sign up for a free trial with the option to subscribe to a one week, one month, 3 month or 1 year plan.

Giving Back to the CRF Community

Tired of Cancer is a content driven social enterprise. This means that we will invest all future revenues in research and development of existing and new solutions for the benefit of fatigued cancer patients. Our focus continues to be on app development, researching new products and creating awareness about cancer-related fatigue.
