How the iPhone Helped the Founder of MacStories with Life After Cancer

MacStories is one of our favourite sites and founder Federico Viticci has shared a detailed account of how the iPhone helped him live healthier, after dealing with cancer:

Last year, I decided to regain control of my body, my life habits, and my health. I started tracking everything I could about my activities, my exercise routine, the food I ate, and the time I spent working with my iPad instead of walking, sleeping, or enjoying time with my family. Since then, I’ve made a decision to not let cancer and its consequences define me any longer.

I want to be healthier, I want to eat better, and I want to take the second chance I was given and make the most of it. What started as an experiment has become a new daily commitment to improve my lifestyle and focus.

And it wouldn’t be possible without my iPhone.

Viticci’s story was even picked up and shared by Apple executive Phil Schiller on Twitter:

Definitely a must-read that puts life in perspective and the things we take for granted.
