There is a beautiful little girl in Puerto Rico that because of the devastation brought on from the hurricane, needs to come to the USA for medical treatment. She has multiple medical issues, one being her need for oxygen. Unfortunately, her oxygen apparatus is not FAA approved which means she couldn’t fly to New York. The family couldn’t afford to purchase her a new machine.
Andrew the CEO at O2 Assist, set everything up with as far as purchasing and shipment but the question remained, how do they get this life saving equipment to this little girl? Answer: Maureen Humel. Maureen works for Jet Blue. Jet Blue sends planes down to Puerto Rico every few days with supplies and the next plane was leaving soon. This meant they had little time to get the machine. Virginia Dente called Andrew from O2 Assist and explained the situation and without hesitation he said he would ship the Oxygen machine next day air at no cost!! Friday morning the boxes were received with all the paperwork filled out and the boxes marked correctly. They only needed to get them to the airport. They went to the Jet Blue terminal and were greeted by 2 of the nicest Jet Blue employees, Melissa and Sham!! They listened to the story with love and concern and all cried together. They were hopeful that the equipment gets to Jeylian as soon as possible so she can come here and receive all of the care and medical attention she deserves.
THANKS, Andrew Kardish at O2 Assist, Maureen Humel, Jet Blue and Monica Soluri (See post on Facebook ) To the O2 Assist Team, it isn’t often in life people are able to build a business that primarily puts the best interest of others ahead of everything but they have done just that! They are a provider of supplemental oxygen resources to oxygen dependent patients. They are blessed with the opportunity of providing life changing independence to their patients by offering them financially affordable solutions to their reliance on supplemental oxygen.
COPD or pulmonary disease is indiscriminate as to whom it affects. It is the third leading killer in the USA with only 1/3 of the patients being properly diagnosed. They help people breathe. What a rewarding experience! They have had the privilege of assisting many individuals over the years by providing viable personalized oxygen solutions to them. When they learned of Jeylian’s special needs and her Guardian Angel’s, Joey’s Friends Too mission to help, they jumped in and assisted in any way they could. They were already aware of the needs of there friends in Puerto Rico following the devastating hurricane, assisting others with emergency oxygen needs. However, this was indeed “special”. There were so many moving parts that had to come together in order for this to succeed. With Ms. Dente’s passion and determination leading the way, they knew it couldn’t fail.
O2 Assist was happy to be a part of the collective effort to bring Jeylain the life saving equipment she needed. O2 Assist will always be ready to assist Joey’s Friends Too and the noble causes they serve.
