I Am All Children: Peyton
Most little girls don’t skip down the hall to see their doctor. But Peyton is not your average little girl. This three-year-old from Brandon spends at least one day a week at All Children’s Specialty Care of Tampa, undergoing treatment for leukemia. One new item used in her care is Virtual Reality Glasses; goggles and a headset that she wears to watch movies whenever painful procedures are needed. Prior to using the goggles, it would take 2-3 nurses to hold Peyton still for a lumbar puncture - even after medication. Now the staff’s biggest concern is picking a movie that won’t make Peyton giggle throughout the entire procedure.
