The Hey Amigo app came about as a result of the direct experience multicultural artist Haikaa and her partner Mercuri had during his cancer treatment. They noticed that in addition to the challenges that are part of the treatment itself, many patients face enormous difficulties getting to and from the hospital and also in finding someone who can accompany them during frequent medical procedures.

They decided to seek solutions. In 2017, they initiated a series of conversations with people in different areas and across the globe: IT entrepreneurs, app developers, financial market executives, lawyers, doctors, nurses, receptionists, volunteers and especially caregivers and patients.

Haikaa and Mercuri were joined by developers Danilo Salvador and Seiji Himoro. With Dr Leandro onboard, the vision for the platform was finally completed. In August 2019, this group of “Amigos” took the Hey Amigo app for its public debut on Google Campus. Shortly after, Mercuri passed away but his spirit lives on as hope, joy, love and friendship.

The Hey Amigo team truly believes that there's nothing like an extended network of friends to make life a little sweeter.
