IDTTYS was developed by Martin Manka due to his isolation and lack of communication while being treated for Leukemia. He felt that staying connected with the rest of the world created a more positive environment for him and helped to avoid loneliness. Martin knew he was not the only one experiencing these difficulties and wanted to make a change in the world of cancer.
Isolation and the feeling of uncertainty about the future creates stress, which degrades quality of life. IDTTYS was created to be there when the need is the greatest… When patients are feeling alone.
IDTTYS is here to provide a link between cancer patients and survivors, their families and their friends. The donation of these laptops enables them to communicate with others for support, helps them understand cancer and its treatment and makes living and coping with the disease a little easier.
