Born out of love and concern for family members facing health challenges, RonWear Port-able Clothing provides warm, comfortable and functional jackets and pants for patients receiving chemotherapy, dialysis and other treatments. RonWear Port-able Clothing is now available for purchase online at RonWear.com.
Headquartered near Cleveland, Ohio, RonWear was created out of necessity in 2004 by Deb Papes-Stanzak when she found herself caring for four family members who were all receiving various kinds of infusions or dialysis.
With 35 years in the fashion industry, Deb designed a comfortable, warm and convenient jacket with zippered sections to allow for easy access of the dialysis fistula for her brother, Ron. Since creating the first RonWear jacket, Stanzak has developed a complete set of stylish treatmentwear for both men and women to receive infusions or dialysis treatments with dignity and comfort.
RonWear produces jackets that have four dual-tab zippered port openings to provide the flexibility to change port access points as needed without buying additional pieces. The openings are located on both arms and both sides of the chest, but because RonWear is designed with hidden zippers, it can be worn in and out of treatment. RonWear also produces pants with port openings in both legs for convenient, discreet groin port access.
A "companion" pant without port access is available to create an ensemble if they only need a jacket to access their port openings. New features include a fluid-repellant and stain release finish for easy cleaning. The garment is also now antimicrobial to help prevent the spread of germs, and inhibit odors.
"Through various family members who were going through chemotherapy and dialysis, I discovered that there was not just a universal need for comfortable, warm and accessible outfits for people receiving treatment, but for that sense of 'normalcy' you lose when ill," stated Deb Papes-Stanzak, Founder and CEO, RonWear Port-able Clothing. "RonWear provides just that in a stylish 'jogging suit' design. We couldn't be more excited to offer patients the option of RonWear to make their now complicated lives easier."
