"To do what nobody else will do, a way that nobody else can do, in spite of all we go through; that is to be a nurse." ~Rawsi Williams
Our mission to provide the highest quality medical products and mental health resources to their friends and family on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic brought Candice and Allison together. Both Texans (hey, it is note-worthy y'all) and both nurses. Candice in Austin, Texas and Allison in Shenzhen, China. Having worked through their own mental health battles which arose from the demands of their healthcare careers, they anticipated the impending tsunami of mental health needs to persist years beyond the pandemic and the need for mask-wearing and they decided to do something about it. Frontliners Med was born out of their mission to not only physically protect the frontline with their superior PPE products, but to provide a safe place to receive subsidized mental health therapy, free of stigmas. A percentage revenue of Frontliners Med is donated to Therapy Aid Coalition, a non-profit organization with over 3,000 providers offering free and low cost therapy for essential workers.
Frontliners Med is a symbol of what we had to go without during this pandemic ppe and mental health support, and what we will never go without again. We have created our own supply chain, designing, manufacturing, and importing products with our own money. While we continue to donate PPE, our bigger picture is to revolutionize the way frontliners are taken care of. When hospitals purchase our brand they are also indirectly providing mental health services for their frontliners via Therapy Aid. Additionally we have visions of scholarships and partnerships that will positively impact legislation focused around mental health. We have been working at this for 8 months. 24 hours a day. With us living on opposite sides of the world, we still continue to take shifts and give report to each other every day just like in the hospital. We wanted to give a humongous thanks to all of you and we appreciate your support for our frontline.
