ENF knows weary pediatric cancer patients are not comfortable lifting their shirts for port access. ENF found no shirt options available to alleviate this unnecessary discomfort and is proud to bring another support element to children battling cancer. ENF’s Loving Tabs were created by ENF’s Patient Services Director, Luz Quiroga and her sister-in-law, Corina Quiroga when her son Martin was going through chemotherapy and transplant.
ENF’s “Loving Tabs” are modern t-shirts designed to facilitate access to medication to children with cancer. They are made of 100% bamboo, which is a breathable and anti-bacterial fabric. This type of material is softer than cotton against the skin. ENF designed the t-shirt to easily open with tabs on the shoulder which allows full exposure of the top of the torso and are available in a variety of popular colors such as black, nautical blue and orchid pink.
ENF’s “Loving Tabs” Healing T-Shirts provide a sense of “normalcy” when children are receiving grueling chemotherapy and are now available to several pediatric hematology/oncology centers throughout San Diego and Orange Counties. (ENF’s “Loving Tabs” Healing T-Shirt’s pattent is pending)
