Untire, The First Mobile App for Cancer-Related Fatigue Patients

UTRECHT, Netherlands, June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Tired of Cancer expands its launch of the new cancer-related fatigue (CRF) app Untire. Fatigue is one of the most common side effects of cancer and its treatment. Untire's easy-to-use self-management program provides support to the 30-40% of cancer patients and survivors suffering from cancer- related fatigue worldwide.

CRF is characterized by feelings of tiredness, weakness, and lack of energy related to cancer or cancer therapy. It often impacts daily living, reduces quality of life with debilitating social and economic consequences.

Untire is available in the App Store and Google Play in 25 EU Countries, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Users can sign up for a free trial with the option to subscribe.

"CRF is a very important topic, however both patients and doctors tend not to talk about it. One of the reasons is that there was no concrete solution. Now there is," said Tired of Cancer co-founder Door Vonk.

The Untire program provides:

  • Education to better understand fatigue
  • Tips and reminders to improve lifestyle
  • Exercises for bodyand mind to increase energy levels
  • Online community for additional support with other CRF individuals
  • Weekly measurements to track energy levels and progress

At the heart of Untire are two decades of psychological interventions and academic research that show the combination of physical and psychological interventions results in a reduction of CRF. The app is designed to help all cancer patients and survivors irrespective of diagnosis or stage. For more information visit
