The inspiration behind iOWNA
Dr Millicent Stone’s inspiration for iOWNA came from her own experience of being a mother of a very ill child and also the way that she interacts with her own patients. Millicent’s daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at a young age; she realised the importance of having the right information at the right time, which helped her and her daughter better understand the nature of the treatment path and how to navigate each step on the way to survival. The other factor that inspired her was her approach with her own patients: Millicent builds relationships with her patients and is evangelical about the benefits of engaging patients in their treatment journey. Above all, the purpose behind iOWNA is to enable people to live longer, healthier lives.
