Thank You For A Great 2011 and On To A Greater 2012

On behalf of all of us at The Cast Clothing Co, I want to personally Thank You for your business, support, comments and feedback over that past year!

We are excited for 2012 with many new products and service offerings coming for you and we especially look forward to growing our line of adaptive clothing options. We continue to reach out for your requests, feedback and comments letting us know what YOU are looking for and how we can help make it easier to dress and to accommodate your individual clothing needs! 

As a reminder, should you have questions on the products we offer or products you would like to see for your specific condition, I encourage you to reach out and ask as your question could very well be that of another and you would be helping them too! 

Thank you again and continue to check back for updates not only on our blog, but our web store as well.

Sincerest gratitude,

Mike

Custom Adaptive and Antimicrobial Clothing…and you

Do you have a limb condition due to diabetes, Lymphedema, broken bone, prosthesis or any other type of condition that affects the clothing you can wear? If you do we want to hear from you!

Would you like to have custom made clothing that specifically accommodates your individual condition allowing you to look and feel like all those who don’t have limb specific conditions? No more feeling self-conscious about how you look, a line of fashionable, everyday clothing products that gives you your dignity back which is so important to us all.

Now what if that clothing had the added benefit of rechargeable antimicrobial protection (and I dont mean a topical antimicrobial additive)? If you battling with a low or even no immunity system, would you feel safer knowing that the clothing your wearing is protected from germs and virus? How about your children, would you feel safer knowing that you are taking the steps you can to help protect them as well while they are in elements that you can not control like the baby sitterm day care or school?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!! We are working to provide these very products to you and we want to show our investors that there really is a truly need for these types of clothing products.

Please tell or pass this on to your family, friends and associates and tell us what you want and need.

Thanks and we look forward to hearing your comments and feedback!

Anti-bacterial and Adaptive Clothing for 2011

Happy New Year and Thank You for a Great 2010!

2011 is going to be an exciting year for all of us at The Cast Clothing Co as we are planning the official launch of our Men’s and Women’s lines of Adaptive Clothing as well as the very first re-chargeable, anti-bacterial line of baby clothing and products. Our Men’s and Boy’s line is “R Marquis Men’s and Boys Custom Adaptive Fashions”. “Olivia Mychals Women’s and Junior’s Custom Adaptive Fashions” is our women’s and young ladies line and we are very excited to be able to launch the first line of re-chargeable, anti-bacterial baby clothing and products with the launch of “Baby O” by Olivia Mychals

Although much work still needs to be done we are very excited to be able to take this next step in our growth. Our clientele range in age from infant to senior and many of these individuals have low or no immunity system due to their condition or disability and now for the first time we will be able to provide an extra line of defense that can help fight the many threatening infections that have reached or are reaching global concern. From the very beginning my goal for Cast Clothing has been to provide and fashionable everyday clothing option for the many individuals who live with limb conditions whether temporary or permanent and now we will be able to do this and have the added anti-bacterial protection to help reduce the risk of infection that can be picked up in every day settings. I have been asked if this only for those with a limb condition or who need modified clothing, absolutely not, once we are up and running with our custom clothing we will also be able to provide this same anti-bacterial to any of our custom clothing clients.

As we move forward with this I will be posting more about our progress. If in-the-mean-time you have questions, I invite you to drop me an email at Mike@CastClothingCo.com at any time. 

Healthcare and Community Acquired Infections are a major issue in our society today and more work needs to be done to help protect all of us from the likes of MRSA, H1N1 and C-difficile as an example and we have been working with a major partner in the Infection Control arena who has the leading technology on the market and we are very excited to be able to take this to the next level for the millions of individuals who can benefit the most from the products we provide not only here in the United States but throughout the World.

All of us at The Cast Clothing Co wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2011! I invite you to check back for updates as the year progresses and if there is ever anything we can do to help you, your family or friends, please let me know.

All the best,

Mike

Antibiotic Resistant Infections, Infection Prevention Products and You…

MRSA, H1N1, C-difficile…by far not the only viral, bacterial or fungal infections that play a major role in how the world views, treats and works to fight infection but also among the most serious that effect our everyday lives.

Many of the individuals that we work with at Cast Clothing are already challenged, not only with the condition that affects them, but also with low or no immunity system to help to fight these and many other antibiotic-resistant infections that can only make the existing condition harder to live with. Unfortunately, unless we personally or a family member or friend picks up an infection, most of us would never think about it and how it can affect or change our lives. Sadly, it is the condition specific or disabled who are the ones that are at the front-of-the-line for being most vulnerable in catching or dealing with these often, life-changing infections

At The Cast Clothing Co we have been working to make a difference on the products that we make available to our clients that can aid in the reduction or in some cases perhaps, the elimination of some of the many types of infection that can affect us, through the inclusion of the latest technologies that are designed to fight against these silent  enemies.

During this process we want to know your thoughts about such things as low immunity system and infection risk, known antimicrobial or infection prevention products that you would like to see or already know about, interest in buying products that can help to reduce or eliminate infection or whether you would even purchase items that were aimed to prevent the spread of infection if it were included in adaptive clothing or everyday clothing items providing for an extra level or protection and peace of mind.

Your thoughts, comments and concerns are always important to us and the basis of the products we provide and work to develop. So I personally invite and ask you to share with us and others who could benefit from your thoughts and input as well.

As always, I thank you for your time and help with your feedback and knowing that if we can help just one person then we have made a difference in someones life!

“Sky’s the Limit” Fundraiser an Incredible Success

This past Thursday evening Meagan Barnard held her benefit ‘The Sky’s the Limit” with incredible success and support from her family, friends and community.  Meagan raised $3,045.71 that will go to the Lymphatic Research Foundation to help in the cause to find a cure.

I have to tell you that after talking with Meagan, her family and friends and seeing first-hand the determination that she has, I know that is only the starting point for Meagan and her fight for this very serious and worthwhile cause.

Throughout the entire process, from the very first time I talked to Meagan back in September of 2008, until today, she has inspired even more to do what I can with Cast Clothing to help as many people as I can who live with Lymphedema and other conditions that affect their limbs to take away the self-consciousness they feel and the difficulty in finding clothes to fit over their affected limb or limbs and give back the diginity that we all deserve.

Meagan, words can not express enough how proud I am of you and how excited I am for you for what you have accomplished, not only for yourself personally, but for the awareness of Lymphedema in your community. I look forward to continuing to work with you in making fashionable adaptive clothing for all the young “Meagan’s” ( and the boy’s too) out there who share your cause and concerns.

If you would like to make a donation to the “Sky’s the Limit” please contact us at Limitless@CastClothingCo.com for more information. All proceeds raised will go to the Lymphatic Research Foundation with the goal that we will be able to help in finding a cure.

Congratulations Meagan! You are a remarkable and inspirational person!

High School Senior puts on a Benefit & Fundraiser to support the Lymphatic Research Foundation

In a recent posting here in our blog I introduced you all to Meagan Barnard, a Senior at Superior High School in Superior, Wisconsin. Meagan has Primary Lymphedema Praecox. For her senior project Meagan created a magazine called Limitless, to help those with conditions or disabilities to see that you can do whatever you put our mind to regardless of our condition or disability.

I am very excited to be able be involved with and to announce that Meagan is going to be holding a benefit and Fundraiser to raise awareness for Lymphedema and in finding a cure. Over 10 million people in the United States live with this condition which to date has no cure. All proceeds from the magazine and the fundraiser will be donated to the Lymphatic Research Foundation so that one day these brave individuals will have a cure for this condition once and for all!

Here’s the details:
