SAN MATEO, CA – Today, MORE Health, a global digital health company, has announced a “new addition” to their family: MORE Health for Kids.
“I refused to accept anyone giving up on a young child,” says Hope Lewis, Co-Founder and CEO of MORE Health. Lewis was working as an international finance attorney when her client’s 18-month-old daughter was diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer. When physicians declared the case hopeless, it was a second opinion and new treatment plan from world-renowned oncologists that provided hope. Today, that little girl is fifteen, healthy, and cancer-free.
This story inspired the formation of MORE Health and directed the company’s mission to give people access to the best medical minds in the world when they need it most when facing a serious life-changing illness.
Guiding their mission and new brand is Jonathan Finlay, MD, ChB, FRCP. Finlay is a world-renowned pediatric neuro-oncologist, or as he likes to call it, “a child’s brain tumor doctor.” He is an Emeritus Professor of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and is Principal Investigator of NEXT / Head Start 4 Consortium Trial at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Among his many awards, he is the first pediatric specialist to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Neuro-Oncology.
Finlay will serve as Pediatrician-in-Chief of MORE Health for Kids, providing parents virtual second medical opinions with the leading specialists from world-class academic medical institutions. This service will be delivered through MORE Health’s proprietary digital platform and can be accessed in the U.S. or internationally.
“I have worked with families and physicians throughout the world for the last forty years and have seen how devastating cancer can be to a child, parents, and siblings,” Finlay said. He goes on to say, “I’ve also seen how new treatments have provided children with both improved survival rates and improved quality of life—which is why I’m delighted to join MORE Health for Kids to provide children and their families with the highest level of healthcare when they need it most.”
