People often ask us - what motivates you? Why struggle so hard to bring technology to healthcare? When we hear from patients like David, we are reminded of why we do what we do. So let me introduce you to David: a courageous man who not only recently learned he has lung cancer, but has made the bold decision to launch a blog and chronicle his journey as he undergoes lung cancer surgery.It was a pleasant surprise when David reached out to us last week to tell us he got SeamlessMD from his surgeon, and has been using it to prepare for his upcoming surgery.As he puts it:

"The app has many benefits. One that is not obvious initially is the comfort it gives to the caregiver. Cancer brings with it a lot of stress and anxiety, especially for the partner or caregiver, who wants to help but isn’t sure what they can do."

With a true passion for technology and innovation, David asked to do an interview and he wrote a wonderful piece about SeamlessMD on his blog which you can find here. He will also write about his experience using SeamlessMD throughout his recovery.What David's doing by sharing his story is truly brave and remarkable. We urge everyone to follow David's story and share it with your family and friends.Thank you David for letting us support you on your journey, and we wish you the best of luck in your recovery!
