CHICAGO BULLS DONATE MONTH’S SUPPLY OF HEALTHWEAR TO ADVOCATE HEALTH CARE AND LURIE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

Bulls are first NBA Team to partner with leading innovative healthwear provider Care+Wear on PICC Line Covers

PRESS RELEASE (CHICAGO) - Today the Chicago Bulls announced that, in collaboration with Care+Wear, the team will donate a month’s supply of custom Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICC) Line Covers to patients at Advocate Health Care and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The donated covers will feature the Bulls logo.

"Many of us have been in situations where a family member or friend is undergoing treatment, and we have looked for ways to provide a bright spot or sense of comfort during a difficult time,” said Michael Reinsdorf, President & COO of the Chicago Bulls. “Care+Wear has designed products that do just that, and we are very happy to partner with them to bring Bulls PICC covers to patients at two of our partner health care providers, Advocate Health Care and Lurie Children’s Hospital. We hope these products make the patients feel like they are a part of the Bulls family and let them know that they have support of the team behind them.”     

The donation is the first team activation of the official partnership between the NBA and Care+Wear. In alignment with Care+Wear's give back program, all NBA proceeds from the NBA Team PICC line covers will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

PICC lines are semi-permanent IVs used to administer treatment or nutrition to patients at home or in the hospital. Like all of Care+Wear’s products, the Care+Wear Bulls PICC Line Cover was developed in partnership with leading clinicians, patients and hospitals to make sure the design was both functional and fashionable. These ultra-soft, antimicrobial and machine-washable covers also feature a patent-pending mesh window so that clinicians and patients can monitor the PICC site, while still protecting the line and allowing for proper functionality of the line.

“We are founded on the principle that while technology has continued to evolve the treatment process, what patients are given to wear has not progressed,” said Chaitenya Razdan, Co-Founder and CEO of Care+Wear. “We are thrilled to be able to support Bulls fans undergoing treatment in the Chicago-area so that they can have more positive healing experiences.”

Founded in 2014, Care+Wear is a leading provider of innovative healthwear focused on creating positive and effective healing experiences for patients everywhere. In collaboration with patients, clinicians and hospitals, Care+Wear’s primary products address the comfort of patients who have PICC lines or chest ports by providing wearable solutions that are both functional and fashionable. Care+Wear works with leagues such as the NBA and MLB so that patients can support their favorite teams while undergoing treatment. For more information, visit www.careandwear.com.
