What It's About
This product supports cancer patients—literally.
Notes from Chris
Episode 1734Welcome to Throwback Thursday / “Where are they now?” where we take an in-depth look at someone who’s story has evolved considerably since we first featured them. Last week, we heard from the owner of ColorHype. Initially a local painting class business based in Texas, ColorHype adapted during the pandemic and sold more than 8,000 painting kits to customers nationwide. Today, in our latest feature, we’ll hear from Rachel Park. She's the creator of the ParkPuff, a “go anywhere” seat belt pillow for cancer and surgery patients. We first told her story back in episode 1032: Breast Cancer Survivor Creates Seatbelt Covers. What’s happened since? Listen to today's episode to hear Rachel's updates...
