With necessity being the mother of invention, I used my own experience to come up with the solution that millions of oxygen-users are looking for every year: a convenient and attractive solution to carrying the very thing upon which they depend on to stay alive: oxygen. Confronted with the fear of being a first-time mother to a baby born three months premature who required oxygen, and the frustration of having to carry a purse, diaper bag, bottles and an oxygen tank, my company BUSY BREATHERS was born.
500,000 babies are born prematurely each year, and many of those will go home requiring oxygen tanks and equipment. In addition, millions of Americans with other health issues have to find the solution to carrying the oxygen equipment with them that sustains life. BUSY BREATHERS is the better system to carry all of your oxygen and medical items in one convenient and attractive bag.”
Huggies brand diapers recognized me for my innovative idea, as well as my tenacity to take it to market, with a $15,000 grant from its new Huggies® MomInspired™ Grant Program.
