CHAM, ZG, SWITZERLAND, March 23, 2022 / — Imagine a social media platform for healthcare – what would that mean? Well, it would mean a platform where everyone around the world could manage and deal with their health journey – whether that is a painful journey or not. They could compare notes with other people around the world, feeling less lonely about the journey they are on. Getting hope, help and putting themselves in control of their own health.

Some people who have been through a difficult journey write their story down and share with as many people as they can. They do this because they want to help other people avoid the suffering that they endured. And it also helps them. Imagine if all the people who might be interested in such a story could be told about it – rather than, by chance, happening to come accross it in some strange part of the internet. Wouldn’t that be good?
