“My father was diagnosed with a number of medical issues causing him to go on dialysis. At first, he had a catheter placed in his chest, requiring him to take off his shirt for treatment.

Celebrate Veterans Day With Us
Being a veteran isn’t just a badge of honor. It’s an entire experience that you share with another group of people. It’s a community that never quite disbands.
My father, the man who inspired me to create this business, served for 26 years in the Marine Corp. He worked his way up the ladder to Master Sergeant before he became a recruiter to help bring more young men into the ranks of the brave with him. Throughout his 26 year career, he served in Vietnam two separate times, the first for 6 months and the second for 18 months as a roving office staff member.
Whenever I think of my father, I swell with pride. He didn’t just inspire me to start my own business; he showed me how to be a good American.
It’s my duty to help others, just in a different way. Celebrate Veterans Day with us. Shop for the dialysis clothing you or your family members here.
