Adrian is a retired United States Air Force veteran living with a left leg amputation
Adrian is a retired United States Air Force veteran living with a left leg amputation from Peripheral Artery Disease, a condition that reduces blood flow to the extremities. Only 62 years old, Adrian is determined to continue living an active and engaged life with his wife, regardless of potential physical barriers.
He wants the basic desires: mobility and the ability to care for himself.
Warm Springs, a local rehabilitation hospital we frequently partner with, referred Adrian to Project MEND in hopes that we could supply him with the tools he needed to reintegrate back into his home.
With support from the Texas Veterans Commission, we successfully put Adrian through our Medical Equipment Reuse Program and provided him with several pieces of professionally refurbished and sanitized medical equipment: 3-in-1 commode for easier transitioning in the bathroom; walker with wheels for more stable and secure mobility and walking; and a tub transfer bench that allows him to safely shower rather than sponge bathe.
Adrian feels that the medical equipment Project MEND provided will help tremendously; he is now confident he can return to the life he desires rather than living with limited ability!
EVERY MOMENT COUNTS
By placing the right piece(s) of equipment into the hands of a person who has no other means to acquire it, lives are transformed and valuable pieces of medical equipment are kept out of local landfills. What we do is simple, innovative, and unique: we provide refurbished medical equipment and other assistive technology devices to individuals who need it.
