It is a digital platform that helps people cope better with an illness
We are human beings and inevitably, sooner or later we will have to live with an illness. We know that no matter the illness we are referring to, it means work. But we also think that if we get involved and take action, we will be able to make it more bearable.
What will you be able to do?
We propose you 5 ways of copping better with the illness
Talk with people like you.
Meet people who live with the same illness and speak with them. Pick those with whom you share more similar characteristics and create your own circle of interest.
