St. Louis, MO (March 9, 2023) Mueller Furniture, 4th generation, family-owned local business, has donated a massage chair to Mercy’s Cardinals Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Program. Mark Mueller, Owner of Mueller Furniture helped deliver the chair to the Cardinals Kids Cancer Center which provides more than 4,000 treatments to pediatric patients each year.
Dr. Robin Hanson, pediatric hematology-oncology physician at Mercy St. Louis and director of its Cardinals Young Adult Cancer program, said this chair will help provide relaxation and comfort to patients and families during their treatments.
“Pediatric and young adult cancer patients and their family members frequently spend long and difficult days in dour treatment center,” said Dr. Hanson. “Mueller Furniture’s generous gift of a massage chair will provide an incredible opportunity to escape for a time into a peaceful, relaxing, and therapeutic environment that will rejuvenate and restore both physical and psychological well-being.”
The chair, valued at $4,000, is a Cozzia CZ388 zero-gravity therapeutic chair. This chair offers lumbar heating, seat vibration, adjustable massage strength, speed and precise body scanning.
“I was first made aware of Mercy’s Cardinals adolescent and young adult cancer program at St Louis Cardinals Fantasy Camp in Jupiter, Florida this January,” said Mueller. “There was a very moving speech by one of the patients and Dr. Jacquelyn Carter, that inspired me. Dr. Carter specifically mentioned that the patients really enjoyed the massage chairs. ‘Who doesn’t right? That’s something I knew I could provide and I was proud to help.”
