Dragonfly co-founder Ria Davidson interviews a Dragonfly dad named Jeremy, whose 6-year old was diagnosed with Leukemia. In the interview, Jeremy discusses how Dragonfly helped his family endure and overcome a variety of challenges related to pediatric cancer, especially at times when his son was immune-compromised.
The interview includes information about how Dragonfly families, including Jeremy's family, benefit from emotional, relational and practical support and numerous patient/family events. Recently, Jeremy's family and other Dragonflies participated in the Findlay Market Opening Day Parade with Stonelick Township Fire Department's Dragonfly Truck and the Dragonfly Train created by Todd Stine, and Fluke Skywalker. Jeremy helped coordinate his employer's support of Dragonfly, and with the help of Oggo arrange transportation of families to/from the parade.
Dragonfly is grateful to iHeart Radio host, Scott Sloan, for recording the introduction/closing of the podcast. The executive producer of Dragonfly's podcast is Joe Strecker.
