Teaming up with WT Farley to Help a Family in Need

May 22, 2017

Recently we were contacted by a family looking for assistance in acquiring a portable oxygen concentrator or POC for their teen, Caleb, who had become oxygen dependent due to cystic fibrosis.  This family went through a divorce and the mother, a now single parent with 3 children, was unable to find the support she needed in acquiring such an expensive device through her insurance.  Most of the time, insurance carriers will provide oxygen tanks for individuals with low income but tanks are very cumbersome and make it difficult for the patient, especially young and fairly active patients, to get out and enjoy their life.

This was a challenge we were willing to take on, especially given the fact that our Founder’s primary message is one of positivity and resilience.

We were lucky to find WT Farley, Inc., a local medical supply company serving the industry for over 45 years and known for offering Innovative, Truly Relevant and Reliable service for patients needing medical supplies including medical gas, accessories and equipment.  Not only were they helpful and knowledgeable, they were also inspired to donate the equipment to this family, what a blessing!

Working together, we were able to secure a brand new Inogen One G3 oxygen concentrator plus an over the shoulder carry bag for Caleb.  The Inogen One G3 is compact and lightweight making it easy for him to continue his active teen lifestyle.

Caleb’s mother writes “Caleb is so grateful for his new Inogen One G3 concentrator that allows him more freedom to leave the house! Thank you to Claire’s Place Foundation and WT Farley, Inc.
