Meet 9th grader Ella Shamash, from Great Neck, NY, who took her diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease at the age of 10 and turned it into an amazing accomplishment with the creation of the IVHOODIE. Undergoing infusions is never any fun for patients, but it is often uncomfortable as well. Ella wanted something that would not only bring her the comfort of being warm but also allow for the infusion to happen without much disturbance for the patient. Her idea has become a reality and we invite you to check out her website where you will find her story and an opportunity to purchase one of her IVHOODIES.
Well done Ella! We are excited to share your story with other families!
