Coordinate help from family and friends during cancer
Our free App makes it easy to reach out and coordinate the help needed while isolating at home.
It's hard to watch someone you care about go through cancer – and even harder to know exactly how to help
Sending flowers, dropping off a meal or saying “let me know how I can help” are common reactions, but are they REALLY helping?
Gather My Crew is a free and easy to use app that lets you coordinate the support that is really needed.
Our app can help you roster transport to hospital, playdates for the kids, laundry, grocery shopping, social visits and more.
Set up a ‘support crew’ today and make sure that the person you care about gets the help they need.
HOW THE APP WORKS
The right help at the right time makes all the difference
How an App Captain helps
It’s common to feel overwhelmed during hardship. This is the reason why 80% of users enlist a family member or close friend to help set up the app.
Gather your Crew
Invite people to join your Crew. Think of friends, family and anyone who’s offered to help. You can use mobile numbers or phone contacts to send an SMS invite.
Identify help opportunities
If the person you’re assisting is overwhelmed, it’s likely they’ll struggle to think of what others should do to help. Our handy 1 minute questionnaire can make it a little easier. We’ll use the answers to build a list of common help requests, all saved in the Help List.
To request help, create a task. You can start with a suggestion from the Help List. Or create your own.
The description, date and time for new tasks will be added to the shared calendar and published task list.
You can use in-app messages to send updates, upload photos and share materials for specific tasks, such as shopping lists or recipes.
“Wednesday is my day off. So I’d be more than happy to walk the dog.”
“I’ll take Anna’s kids with mine to school. Easy since they’re so close by”
Many hands make light work
Using our innovative platform, thousands of everyday people have worked together to support one another. Building a community of kindness to provide sustainable support that meets the needs of those they care about.
