Hamburg Woman Battles Cancer With Support From Fellow Survivors on an App

Her support team carried her through chemotherapy that shattered her immune system along with her cancer cells, and a stem cell treatment that kept her hospitalized much of last summer.

An online support group called GRYT has helped bring her through a slow, continuing recovery.

“I've joined different Facebook groups. I've been on social media, different chat rooms,” said Pohrte, 48, of Hamburg, “and GRYT is really the only place that I feel comfortable enough to be open and honest about my experience.”
