-- In the world we live in today it is more common to find someone who is and or has a family member or loved one diagnosed with cancer than it is not, with 38.4% of men and woman being diagnosed in their life time. This topic hits home for me personally because I lost my friend just days before my high school graduation. I watched as she battled chemo therapy, losing her hair but never hear smile. When she would have her final round of treatment we would always celebrate by having a small gathering of friends. Like typical teenagers we ordered every take-out food you could imagine from pizza, to Chinese, anything was better than the hospital food she had been eating. Unfortunately, our dinners were often interrupted by vomiting, and the side-affects of her medication. After watching her unable to look at food we all made the decision that we would no longer eat in front of her in hopes to relieve some of the burden this treatment was putting on her life. While many focused on her smile and spirit, those closest to her watched her body deteriorating. I remember on one of her final days we planned to go to the mall, prom was coming up and she wanted to get a dress in hopes that she would be feeling up to going. As she attempted to descend the stairs she was forced to stop after each one, exhausted and weak she was severely malnourished. There was not a day that went by where I wished that I could had relieved some of the burden for her. NoMo Nausea is doing that with their products, allowing someone looking to relieve their morning sickness or migraines, the opportunity to give a band to a patient who is suffering. With 80% of customers experiencing a difference within the first 30 seconds of wearing the band it is a product looking to make a true difference in the lives of all people.
