Reviews

Reviewer: Thompson-Mason Brain Cancer Foundation, USA
Review: “ ‘SeeWord’ is a game we developed for both iOS and Android, designed to exercise your brain. Up to 50% of all profits from the game are donated to both our foundation, as well as other leading brain cancer research foundations. When my mother was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), her tumour appeared in the area of her brain that is responsible for word recollection and recognition, so it was imperative that she kept her mind engaged with tasks that exercise it. That’s when I had the idea to design and develop SeeWord, to help her and others like her exercise their minds in a new, fun and unique way.”

Reviewer: Voices Against Brain Cancer (VABC), USA
Review: “Voices Against Brain Cancer (VABC), an organisation dedicated to brain cancer research and advocacy, comments on a recently released mobile app that was designed specifically for brain cancer patients. According to a January 26, 2014 article published by WYMT TV, titled ‘Brother creates app for brain cancer patients, loved ones,’ three Kentucky men from Morehead created a mobile app designed to give hope to brain cancer patients. The idea for the app came after Lowell Thompson’s sister, Teresa Mason, was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme—the rarest but deadliest form of brain tumours. He understood their time together was limited so he turned to his two friends, Wesley Mason and David Boarman, and designed the app called ‘SeeWord’ that would attempt to help Teresa keep her brain function as long as possible. Michael Klipper, Chairman of Voices Against Brain Cancer, believes a mobile app designed for those dealing with the repercussions of brain cancer is necessary. “Unfortunately, brain cancer has some of the most devastating physical, emotional and mental effects on the human body in comparison to other cancers,” he says. “It only makes sense to incorporate today’s advanced technologies in bettering the quality of life of those suffering from this terrible disease”.”
