We Love To Care!

Here at Danlee, we are a big family and like big families, we love to be open and share our opinions, thoughts and hopes with everyone. This month, we wanted to share our hope in having you join us to help raise awareness to Breast Cancer. We have had a lot of great feedback and participation and we want to thank all of our thoughtful customer’s out there! We do still have some Pink Ribbon Bears left, so if your order is at least $150, tell us you want one!

Here is a shared Story…please feel free to share yours with us as well.

The Pink Ribbon Shop
Daughter of Breast Cancer Survivor
I was only 11 years old when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.   At any age the thought of cancer is scary.   Let alone your mom.   My father was not in the picture at the time… It was always me and mom.   Together we could make it through anything, and this was another case of making it.   I held her hand through chemo.   I held the bucket when she got sick.   I brushed her hair as it fell out.   And a lot of hugs and kisses.  From me to her and her to me.    

There’s a lot of details I am leaving out, for most know the pain that the family and friends go through.   But for us there was the rainbow on the other side and Thank God  for him holding our hands to be strong and seeing us through it.  My mom made it.  I looked to her as the strongest women in the world.  As I got older I met a lot of those strong women.  And Thank God for each and every one of them.   And in my prayers are all the one ‘s who were not as lucky as my mom.   Like my great grandma… She lost her battle to cancer.   Anything that gets us closer to the solution I am for and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that my children  don’t have to go through the struggle to survive.

This is not a winning story… But my thoughts are with all of you.

Advantages of Bringing Your Pet to Work

Not everyone is excited about waking up in the morning to go work all day in an office. Maybe you are, but I am sure there have been days where you just weren’t up to it. One of the best ways to improve the overall mood of an office setting is to bring a dog/pet into the office. You may be skeptical at first but, I assure you the benefits highly outweigh any disadvantages the pet may bring. 

My name is Dan Walton and here at Danlee Medical Products I have been fortunate enough to recently start bringing my 5 month year old English bulldog named Boris to work. Everyone loves to see Boris and you can see such a big difference especially in the morning. As soon as Boris walks through the door everyone’s face lights up with big smiles and they give Boris all kinds of attention and even starting interacting with each other more as well which helps co-workers bond. You really see a more genuine side of people when they interact with pets and I think that by bringing a pet to work you add an element of home life into the office setting. Bringing your pet to work is also good for him/her as well because he receives companionship from many different people. Research has shown that dogs may actually lower blood pressure and lessen anxiety.

Obviously there are a few downsides or things you may have to deal with when bringing a pet to work. Some of these include, chewing (if not fully trained), bathroom breaks, allergies, and in the case of Boris, farts. The only downside that I could see being a major problem is allergies but, I suppose you could just check with your employees/co-workers beforehand.

If you want to improve the overall mood of your office bring your pet to work and you will notice that your employees/co-workers will become much more happy and enjoyable to be around. Happy employees are also generally more productive as well.
