180 Medical Supports Comer Children’s Hospital Race for the Kids

by Jessica October 21 2013 11:35
On Sunday, October 6th 180 Medical helped sponsor the University of Chicago Medicine Corner Children’s Hospital RBC Race for the Kids. There was a 5K Run/Walk, Kids’ Dash, and Kids’ Mile.

This event raised money to further support research efforts of University of Chicago medical students and some of the top pediatric physicians in the country, along with enabling the Comer Children’s Hospital to continue to provide excellent care for all of the little ones in their hospital.

180 Medical was glad to help out with this event to further influence Comer Children’s Hospital’s critically important pediatric programs, and we are proud to be a provider to many families across the nation with children in need of catheters and urological supplies.

If you have a child currently using catheters or who may need to begin self-cathing soon, please feel free to give one of our trained specialists a call to discuss the best option for your call, as we understand each person and their specific needs are unique, or begin by checking out our pediatric catheter options online here and joining the 180 Medical Kids Club (a program created to make the transition to independently self-cathing easier and smoother for your child and you).

Paralysis Research Breakthrough

A paper published by the British medical journal
The Lancet noted a paralyzed man, Rob SummersRob Summers, stood, took steps, and now can voluntarily move his legs using epidural stimulation. It has been all over the news and is the current buzz within the paralysis community. This study was funded by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and I could not be more proud to be a supporter.  

This this could lead to some really exciting things in the future. It really gives me great pride that 180 Medical supports the Reeve Foundation so they are able to fund important initiatives like this. 

Since my injury almost 17 years ago I have heard all sorts of things regarding a cure. At first my nurse told me there would be one in 5 years. I waited and still no cure. Then they said it would be another 5 years but they would get one. Still nothing. I began to think I was going to be stuck in a wheelchair for my whole life but now I have renewed hope for myself and others like me to be able to walk again someday.

If you are paralyzed or know someone who is, check out the Reeve Foundation. They are doing great things.
