This past May, I received an Exceptional Woman award from Magic 106.7, a local Boston area radio station. The Exceptional Woman Program profiles “women who have overcome obstacles to achieve greatness in their lives” and airs every Sunday morning. Over the years, they have highlighted more than 400 amazing and inspiring women and shared their stories over the airwaves.
Sharing the Spirited Sisters Story
Once a year this program comes off the radio to recognize exceptional women live and in person. This year, I was the recipient of the Exceptional Woman Award for Healthcare. This enabled me to share the story of my sister Claire and how the Original Healing Threads hospital gowns came to be.
Redefining Hospital Gowns
Many people are, by now, familiar with the story of how Spirited Sisters came to be, but this video gives a brief but powerful overview of our lives as sisters, friends and business partners. From childhood to adulthood, family photos tell our story while I narrate. The video is a quick glimpse into how a devastating cancer diagnosis inspired us to redesign hospital gowns to create adaptive clothing that help women heal and recover from illness and medical treatments with dignity, grace and style.
The Original Healing Threads recovery gowns and pants are designed to keep you looking put together throughout your day-from home to work to hospital to the store-without making the entire day revolve around a doctor’s appointment. You do not just have to “roll over” and accept that you are now a “cancer patient;” you are a person, the same as you were the day before, and these adaptive clothing styles will help remind you of your true identity.
Adaptive Clothing that Helps You Feel Like You
The video shows all the unique features of the Original Healing Threads garments and really highlights what makes the collection stand out, not only as fashionable recovery wear, but as a way of asserting yourself and taking control over your disease and your treatment.
