The right cutting edge equipment can make life more comfortable for a child who is undergoing cancer treatment.
Valuable contributions from our donors have helped My Room fund equipment such as:
An interactive portable 3D pain distraction system. This is an exciting virtual reality technology for patients to immerse themselves in sensory experiences and fantasy adventures. This helps reduce stress, anxiety and trauma for the child and their family, enabling clinicians to administer intensive treatments, including chemotherapy, more efficiently.
A interactive touchscreen educational whiteboard. This is used to facilitate interactive learning connectedness with home schools and communities, as well as provide vital distraction and entertainment for adolescent and young adult patients.
The direct purchase of at-home IV pumps. It gives selected patients undergoing chemotherapy the ability to have treatment in the comfort of their own home. This would result in fewer patients being admitted to a hospital ward or as outpatients, in a more relaxed setting for them and their families. My Room has contributed over $28,000 to purchase IV pumps to assist with this trial.
