About 18Loop

18Loop is a 501c3 nonprofit company that deploys advanced XR technology to
kids with cancer to help them tolerate treatment, recover and thrive.


What We Do

18Loop deploys Extended Reality (XR) technology to help kids with cancer tolerate treatment, recover and thrive. We have tested the efficacy of Virtual Reality (VR) on pediatric. cancer patients with the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO), the oldest and largest grassroots nonprofit to fight pediatric cancer. It is 18Loop's goal to advocate for XR adoption for pediatric cancer patients and to distribute the technology to as many cancer kids as we can through our partnership with the ACCO. Gaming, virtual stress management and immersive learning will strengthen our kids in their fight against the disease. 85% of our kids report better mood with 18Loop VR.

​Why We Do It

18Loop recognizes that 16,000 children get diagnosed with pediatric cancer in the United States every year. Treatment is taxing and often leaves young patients with side effects. Our team has recognized that there is a lack of funding for custom treatments and that kids sometimes don't receive optimal care. The industry of health and wellness XR is progressing rapidly and we continue to push for the adoption of the technology in our constituent population in order to ensure that XR is brought to bear against this terrible and debilitating disease. We stand beside our partners to make small steps to combat childhood cancer one 18Loop child at a time.
