Breathe Healthy’s owner, Mike Vahey, said “We often receive mask orders from patients who have to wear masks all day long. Our product is a more fun and comfortable mask than the regular paper kind, which makes day to day life just a little easier on the patient. We are happy to be able to donate these masks to the kids who may need them, if it even helps just a little bit. We also want to support the great work that CHKD does any way we can”.
CHKD is the only freestanding children’s hospital in Virginia. Whether a child needs hospitalization, ongoing care for a chronic illness, outpatient surgery or primary care, CHKD Health System provides the staff, facilities and technologies that address the unique demands of childhood. Since the Norfolk City Union of The King’s Daughters established the hospital in 1961, CHKD has undergone two major renovations and expansions and is now at the hub of a comprehensive system of caring dedicated exclusively to children.
Breathe Healthy is based Williamsburg, Virginia. Their signature product is a line of breathing masks for respiratory protection that are designed to be a re-usable, more comfortable, and “wearable”
