THE STORY OF LUNA.
CHANGING PAIN FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
The CEO & founder of this company's name is Naomi Van Halteren. At age 11 she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. At age 24 she was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. To date, Naomi has given herself over 35,000 needles and goes for hospital IV infusions every six months.
Naomi is a registered nurse who has worked for over five years in labour & delivery, high-risk obstetrics, and as a flu/ immunization nurse. Watching patients stress and fear needles is hard on the patient, family, friends, AND healthcare workers! Continuously seeing patient's struggle to cope and be debilitated by their fears sparked an idea for CHANGE .
Luna VR is working with Stambol Studios to start this movement by using the best tech that is available. We are very excited to be working with Dogu and his incredibly talented team to make this dream a reality. Click on his picture below to see for yourself how great Stambol Studios is!
" I was TERRIFIED of needles as a child, suddenly I was forced to learn how to work through my fear, pain, and stress because with diabetes you have no choice. "
- Naomi Van Halteren, CEO, founder, RN.
"I wanted to do something to help lessen my patient's fear and anxiety which most people say is worse than the actual pain of a needle."
"We want to make Luna VR vaccines the norm so that children and adults can be excited about the world they get to enter and the experience they get to have. VR will ultimately help them learn to handle the pain with a more positive outlook and with better coping abilities"
-Naomi Van Halteren, CEO, Founder, RN.
