Fabian Bolin

Fabian Bolin is the CEO & Co-founder of WarOnCancer AB, a digital health company aiming to make the world a better a place for everyone affected by cancer – today and tomorrow. The company is on a mission to accelerate healthcare through enhanced patient self-management, improved research and treatment programs, and more patient-centric delivery of care.

The company is currently developing the WarOnCancer App – a niche community for cancer where patients, survivors and loved ones can share journeys, health data, boost health literacy and build their own tribes.

After being diagnosed with leukaemia in 2015 at 28 years of age, Fabian began documenting his cancer battle on a blog, which quickly gained global attention. His first post, shared over 13,000 times on Facebook has led to over 100,000 messages, e-mails and letter of support to date. By recognizing the power and potential of storytelling and combining it with a strong urge to empower others affected, the idea of WarOnCancer was born. A movement to unite the world.

Fabian won the award “Journalist of the Year 2015” for his blog by CancerRehabFonden and was selected as a Swedish Super Talent 2018 by Veckans Affärer. He was recently ranked No. 1 on the list of most influential in the Swedish MedTech industry 2018.

Jorge Cortell

One man’s quest to revolutionise cancer treatment

As love stories go, it could win an Oscar: Boy meets girl, girl falls seriously ill, boy nearly bankrupts his company to help save her, girl recovers, boy realises he has built incredibly successful business that could help save millions of lives, they both live happily ever after.

Except this isn’t Hollywood; this really happened.

Jorge Cortell risked the company he founded, his livelihood, everything, to save the love of his life from breast cancer.

Now he has teamed up with the UK’s National Health Service and Microsoft to make his inventions available to the doctors who need them most.

What started as a personal quest has revolutionised how we tackle cancer, which claimed more than 163,000 lives in 2014 in the UK, according to Cancer Research’s latest figures, and nearly three times that number were diagnosed with the disease.

People can now be treated faster and more effectively, potentially saving the NHS millions of pounds a year.
