Glen Mills, PA – Medical Solutions Supplier, a leading provider of home therapy equipment and supplies to treat chronic or acute medical conditions, has embarked on a month-long charitable initiative that links their trademark brownie deliveries to benefit a worthy cause.
“Our Sales Representatives are known for delivering brownies to their referral sources,” remarked Joseph Carberry, Executive Team Leader. “Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and our compression therapy devices help many who are recovering from breast cancer surgery, we decided to make a donation for every batch of brownies delivered during the month to a non-profit organization that focuses on breast cancer awareness/research.”
The “Brownies for Breast Cancer” idea originated from Sales Representative Mike O’Brien, who serves Southern New Jersey and surrounding areas. A simple concept to connect his normal brownie deliveries with a cause grew into a company-wide charitable initiative with a goal to raise $10,000 for a breast cancer charity.
“Giving back is a hallmark of Medical Solutions Supplier,” added Steve Kantor, Founder and President. “Case studies show that 15% of all women who have had breast cancer will develop lymphedema over the course of their lifetime. Our pneumatic compression pumps deliver gentle compression and massage that mimic the normal pumping action of the lymphatic system and produce results that improve quality of life for these patients.”
When lymph nodes or lymphatic vessels are damaged, which can be an unfortunate side affect of lymph node removal or radiation therapy, fluid cannot leave the body. As the fluid builds up, the affected area swells dramatically, making skin fragile. “It is critical to move the stagnant lymph fluid back into circulation, and our compression therapy does so in the comfort of the patient’s home,” noted Carberry.
Joan Caffray from Fort Wayne, Indiana has experienced the benefits of Medical Solutions Supplier’s compression pump therapy first hand. “As a 13-year breast cancer survivor, I use the pump every day for one hour and it helps the fluid waste to leave my body. I wouldn’t be without it.” Jacqueline Smith from Fredericksburg, Virginia wrote to express her thanks: “My arms now have gone from a size 18 to 14. I only wish I had this earlier. It would have saved me a lot of suffering.”
“We have hundreds more testimonies just like these, which has been a motivating force for Medical Solutions Supplier since 1994,” mentioned Kantor. “We are gratified by the results our product produces, and in this 20th year of our Company’s history, felt it was appropriate to offer additional support to cause of breast cancer research and awareness.” The initial Brownies for Breast Cancer plan was for a $1 donation to be made with every brownie delivery during the month of October. Kantor upped the stakes by committing to match each dollar contributed up to a total of $10,000.
