This week on The Not Mini Adults Podcast - "Pioneers for Children's Health and Wellbeing" we talk to Dom Raban, CEO of Xploro. Xploro came about as a result of Dom’s personal experience as a father when his daughter was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. Now, aged 20, she’s cancer-free, but when she was ill nobody told her what to expect and that made her feel scared, anxious and alone. Unfortunately across the board provision of information preparing children for hospitalisation could be better. The few resources that hospitals do have, such as books and leaflets, become worn out quickly and are costly to replace and there are not always enough play staff to spend time with children, preparing them for procedures. Research shows that if you provide patients with information prior to treatment you reduce their stress and anxiety and improve their clinical outcomes. Dom decided that it was about time to give children the information they need and deserve and so Xploro was born.
Listen to his extraordinary story as he discusses Xploro and how it is providing children, parents and siblings going through cancer treatment with much needed information.
Hear also how Xploro is now available to any child and family anywhere in the world who is currently going through cancer treatment.
