At Solaris, we know the importance of being an active member of our community. That’s why we're committed in our efforts to give back to the people in the markets we serve. It all begins by communicating with therapists, patients, activists, fitters, and doctors to determine how we can all work together to better serve our communities. Below are just some examples of our commitments:
Developed under the leadership of experts and investigators in the field of lymphedema, the ALFP, a partner of the International Lymphoedema Framework, strives to evaluate and advance the quality of lymphedema care.
Working in partnership with organizations worldwide, the ILF's goal is to improve the management of lymphoedema and related disorders.
The LLN is a non-profit dedicated to promoting lymphedema awareness, support, and education. Every year they hold an annual Lymphedema Education and Awareness Day in Georgia which we're happy to help support.
For over a decade the Lymphatic Education & Research Network has been on a mission to find the causes and cures for lymphatic diseases, lymphedema, and related disorders, something that all of us at Solaris are proud to support.
Formaly known as HR 4662, the Lymphedema Treatment Act was created to provide diagnosis, education, and treatment for everyone with or at risk for lymphedema among other things. It is currently awaiting reintroduction to the 112th Congress and needs your support, so please click on the logo to the left to see how you can help make history!
We're proud to be a premier sponsor of LANA, whose goal is to promote standards for lymphedema management and maintain certification for lymphedema professionals.
Everyone knows that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, that's why for the second year now, Solaris employees have been honored to help make strides against breast cancer! We encourage you to make your own strides and visit the Making Strides or the American Cancer Society's sites.
The Marilyn Westbrook Garment Fund was created to help NLN patient members that need assistance with the purchase of their compression garment. For more information about the Marilyn Westbrook Garment Fund go to www.lymphnet.org.
The NLN, is an internationally recognized non-profit founded in 1988 that helps provide education and guidance to people living with lymphedema, medical professionals, and the general public.
To try and help the littlest ones living with lymphedema, we have created Tiny Tributes. Children under the age of 13 qualify to receive free or greatly discounted Tribute custom designed products.
Unfortunately, a lot of people still have difficulty getting insurance to cover medically necessary garments. That's why we dedicate a percentage of our sales each year to be given as complimentary garments to patients in need.
In addition to supporting these regional and national organizations and programs, we realize that it's just as important to give back to our local community. Since 2007, in lieu of a holiday party, all of us at Solaris have traveled to local stores in order to purchase toys and clothes to donate to underprivileged kids in the greater Milwaukee area during the holiday season.
