immersive healing experiences

our “patient vision teams” are the creative force behind all of our
experiential media

Every week we ask patients, “If you could heal anywhere in the universe and there were no rules, what special place would best promote your healing?”  Then they receive treatment in their special “healing place” as personalized distraction therapy.

Our immersive healing library is shared between all of our partners and may be experienced via tablets or phones, VR headsets or TV screens. The library includes:

  • Pediatric and Adolescent requested “immersive healing experiences”, directed by local patient vision teams nationwide
  • Live Events (virtual field trips) tailored to the themes the local vision teams select


Immersive Healing Experiences

‟In the water, even virtually, I find the serenity and courage to focus on the positive side of healing. I forget about my life’s struggles and suddenly water becomes my life, my strength, and my healing place.”  Nick / Survivor / Vision Team Lead (Water)

VR Headsets

“Today we got out of the hospital to swim with some new underwater friends!”, AYA Child Life program manager.  VR headsets are available and used for short term distraction during procedures like blood draws and port access, and with custom immersive education” for MRI and radiation treatment.

Immersive Healing Experiences

‟In the world of the future treatment might not have to be like this.  It might be quicker, and way more efficient. Dreaming about the world of the future makes me believe I’ll have one.”  Trevor / AYA Survivor / Vision Team Lead (The Future)

Live Events

“My name is Dr. Moogega Cooper and I’m a planetary protection officer at Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  All of you guys who thought space would be a cool place to heal…?  Let’s pilot the rover on mars.”  Dr. Cooper / Live Event Host & Advisory Board Member

Live Events – We extend our “immersive healing experiences” by taking patients (virtually) to places that inspire them to survive & thrive! One of those places is NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).  This “virtual adventure” is hosted by Dr. Moogega Cooper, Planetary Protection Officer, NASA / JPL.

Live Events – Some of our “immersive healing experiences” involve animals.  Our “patient vision team” at the Miami Cancer Institute felt that an African Safari would be healing.  This Live Event connected our partner hospitals and organizations with Ron Magill at Zoo Miami with a cast of amazing animals!

Turtle Talk with Crush & Friends (trailer)

Live Events – Many of our “immersive healing experiences” involve the ocean.  Some patients want to explore it; some just want to “chill”.
