The Hackathon challenge is to create an app which gives worldwide Leukaemia sufferers and their families access to a vital resource that connects them to patients through a dedicated Cure Leukaemia community. This will offer key information on their illness and suggestions that can help them throughout their battles, including ways to strengthen self-esteem and mental wellbeing, diet advice and what to expect throughout their treatment.

Paul Shepheard, Head of Development Engineering from Deutsche Bank, said: “Great Hackathons rely on having inspiring, challenging problems for engineers and designers to solve. From our very first conversation, it was clear that Cure Leukaemia had just that. The opportunity to create something which will benefit leukaemia patients around the world is hugely exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing what our teams produce.”
