We were so surprised and thrilled to receive this beautiful video testimony in the mail from PD patient, Stephen Dennehey, wearing his PD Security Bands on his trip to Alaska in 2005. Stephen loved the PD Security Bands so much, he produced this video for other patients to see. Thank you, Stephen! Patient's Pride, Inc.
"When I first received my PD Security Bands, I was a little unsure as to properly place my transfer set in the band. Well, with one quick phone call I was connected to the wonderful staff at Patient's Pride, who completely put me at ease and who were more than happy to help! My PD bands have fit perfectly! now when I am out, whether it is shopping, out for lunch, or dancing, I no longer have the concern that my transfer set is going to fall out! It's a big relief. This product is a MUST for any person on PD. For not only will the PD Security Bands fit great, they will look great on you, too!: Thank you so much!"
"I have been on P.D. for 2 years now, and I have used their "P.D." belts and I have even made my own belts; mine was better than theirs...BUT not near as good as the PD Security Band! It is much easier to use and a great time saver! It does not slip or roll and I do not even feel that I am even wearing one! SUPER GREAT JOB on your belts just like your helpful customer service. PEGGI is so very helpful and a joy to talk too!" William Prentiss
"The PD Security Band is definitely a MUST for all PD Patients. My catheter is secure and the band is so comfortable, I forget I'm wearing it. Before I found Patient's Pride, I used tape. I'm still trying to heal all the sores it caused. The staff is courteous, helpful, and very, very patient. I wear the "Summer Light" for swimming and spending summer days outdoors. The "Classic" offers a little more support and is also so comfortable you'll forget you're wearing it. Thank you, Patient's Pride!" Mary Jo Murphy
"The PD Security Bands are wonderful; I no longer have to worry about the tubing getting caught and damaged by zippers or having it fall out of the other belt. The PD Security Band is so comfortable, you hardly notice you are wearing it. It has given me more freedom to wear certain clothing that I wouldn't have worn without it. Thank you for your wonderful service person; she was very helpful. When I phoned to place my order, she was very informative and very pleasant to deal with. I would recommend anyone doing PD to get the PD Security Band. It has made a difference in the way I'm dealing with PD. Thank you again!" Dale Crompton
"I love my PD Security Band. I feel much more comfortable with it and I don't have to keep checking to make sure my catheter has not slipped out of my clothes. It gives me freedom to move about freely. I am so glad I went with Patient's Pride!" Ljiljana Kudjerski
"It sure beats the heck out of tape!" Jerry Richard

"I have used the Patient's Pride Security Band™ for two years. They are very comfortable and they do a good job."
"This PD Security Band™ is perfect especially for kids. My nephew is only 5 years old and he could easily put this on himself. Not only do we worry about keeping the exit site clean, but now with the band, I don't have to worry about anything. Now he can play on the playground and climb in the jungle gym and I know his catheter is protected from being pulled and away from infection. The staff have been helpful and kind. Thank you, Peggi! I would highly recommend this to every PD patient out there! Thank you so much!
Jocelyn Valdez, Aunt of a 5 year old PD Patient
"All I can say is, "IT'S SO GREAT-IF ONLY IT CAME IN HOT PINK!:" Marie Preston
"The PD Security Band, so very comfortable and a must for all PD patients. I used spandex for seven (7) years and wished I had this sooner. It does not cut you, not tight and just a blessing to have, thanks to Patient's Pride! Everyone was helpful and very kind. Thank you so much and thanks for the note from Peggi. Jim Jones
"Using my Patient's Pride Security Band enabled me to feel protected when going about all my daily activities. It's eliminated the severe rashes and damaged skin I got from securing my catheter with tape and gauze pads. I also sleep more soundly knowing that my catheter stays put. I showed off my PD Security Band to my PD Dialysis Baxter rep - she loved it and said it looked slimming (as slimming as having 2 liters of solution sloshing in your abdomen can look!) :)
"Excellent product; it holds the catheter line perfectly and saves the use of tape that can cause problems. I endorse this product." Stanley Eisner
"I love it! Thanks from the bottom of my heart! Thanks for the gift!" Tommy Shea
"The PD Security Band is comfortable, just like a second skin. I love it. Thank you very much. The tape is bothersome. The tape breaks down the skin and makes sores."

"From the minute I put my PD Security Band™ on, I knew I was going to love it. I feel much more comfortable with it. Now I don't have to keep checking to make sure my catheter has not slipped out from under my clothes. Now it is not going anywhere. I am so glad I went with Patient's Pride."
"The PD Security Band™ has been a great improvement over using adhesive tape, which has made my skin itchy and pulled my hair out by their roots." Howard Quaife
"This is a very convenient belt. It is easy to clean. The pocket means I do not have to tape the catheter anymore. The PD Security Band™ is comfortable and fits me well even over the expansion caused by the dialysis. I will buy more when these are worn out." Hiroko Mattssen
" For months I have had to endure the pain of irritation of using tape on my transfer and exit site to secure my catheter. Now that I have the PD Security Band™ my exit site is very healthy looking and has no redness around the exit site. It is truly a Godsend to be able to just put the transfer set into the pocket on the band. So easy, so comfortable, so clean! I love it so much in just the few weeks I have had it. Thanks so much." Michael Dunlop
"I love the feel of the PD Security Band™. It is very comfortable and holds the catheter without showing through my clothes. It's custom made!! It gives great freedom to move about freely.
"I love, love, love my PD Security Bands™. I am now on my 2nd set. My first set lasted 3 years! They stay in place; they keep my catheter/tube in place. The worst experience I had with another belt was in the airport it came off in security and my catheter fell out with it. The belt was on the floor! Who wants to put that back on? The PD Security Band has never let me down! Thank you!" Lois E. Burns
"I couldn't imagine continuing peritoneal dialysis without my PD Security Band, because of the comfort and freedom it provides. No more tape!"Norman Thompson

"First, I would like to thank your representative, Harp. She has been courteous and helpful and patient in taking my order and measurements.

I experienced no more itchiness caused by the tape I've used before to secure my PD catheter." Adrian Llantino
"The PD Security Band™ really allows so much freedom from all the taping-easy to use and easy to clean-such a relief. Thanks for all your help and support!" Gerald Zukowski
"This is the best band for holding your catheter that there is! I tried a number of different kinds and none works and feels like the PD Security Band; plus you have the added benefit of a company that custom makes a product to your needs and cares about you as a customer! Their kindness got me over a number of humps when I first entered the PD world. In the difficulties of living with a chronic illness, Patient's Pride is an inspirational group of folks." Susan B. Dewan
"First, I would like to thank your representative, Peggi, for being so courteous and thoughtful in handling my order. I have been wearing my band since I received it and it feels wonderful, and I feel more secure and safe about my exit site. There is no stress on my exit site. And last but not least, NO MORE TAPE BLISTERS! I am so relieved! Again, thank you!" Phyllis B Cook
"I am so blessed that my daughter got online and discovered your PD Security Band™. I've been on PD just a year and four months. My daughter discovered your PD.Security Band™ about three months into my dialysis. I was so happy! The belt I got with my supplies I felt was very unsafe. Now I feel safe and secure! They're comfortable! YEAH for Patient's Pride!" Carol Kilburn
"Thank you so very much for this wonderful product. I was so concerned about how to protect my brother's exit site and catheter. This product put my mind at ease from the first time he wore it.

It is always nice to have someone on the other end of the phone who cares!" Greg Poncia

“I have tried nearly every catheter support product over the past eight (8) years and the best I could come up with was tape; taping my catheter led to skin irritation and discoloration. Now that I have tried the PD Security Band™ I’m convinced that it should be a part of every patient’s start-up kit. Hands down it is the best! Put it on and forget about it! No more taping my catheter. Thank you Patient’s Pride.” Roderick Carty
Wearing the PD Security Band is wonderful and holds in place without any difficulty. I have attached a photo taken January 2006 while on a 15 day Island Princess Cruise from LA to Hawaii, dancing with my wife of 50 years, Harriett. I had no difficulty with doing peritoneal 4 times a day in our cabin.

"I've been on PD for 4 years. Your band is the best out of 5 (five) that I've tried--in itself it is even comfortable. Not only do I like your band, but ever equal is the caring help I received from Peggi and Sheila. They are a tribute to the medical profession." Jerry Martindale

Try as I might to look like Sheila Shaw in her "arms in the air pose" [as seen on this website], I can't seem to get the arms just right!!! However, I do feel the freedom of having the band. I have never seen a company such as Patient's Pride (and Sheila Shaw) work so diligently with me to be sure that the band was a perfect fit." Joyce Buchanan

There are so many wonderful people out there just waiting to help out, and the PD Security Bands™ that I received from Patient's Pride are just amazing! There is no more need for that nasty tape!" Terry Theard
"As a caregiver for my elderly father, my goal was to offer him a PD security belt that was more comfortable than the one offered by his dialysis equipment provider. I truly thank you for all of the effort you put into customizing a soft belt that now fits him to perfection. Your patience was endless as we worked through the ordering/sizing process. And the fact that you truly care about each person you create these belts for, was abundantly clear. Again, my father and I thank you, and wish you all of the best in the future." Lori Evans, caregiver for Father on peritoneal dialysis, Ardmore, PA
"I am now wearing my Summer Light PD Band and really hardly know I have it on. It stays in place and feels like a second skin and best of all my tubing is held securely in place instead of dangling down my leg! When I received my first band it didn't fit properly and I was discouraged but with the patient and caring assistance of Sheila, inventor of the band, we made adjustments and my new belt arrived shortly and turned out to be a perfect fit. Since Sheila was also a PD patient herself she is able to relate well to her customers. I found her easy to talk to and incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. I recommend the PD Security Band without reservation; I think it is the best product of its kind. All in all- it is freedom with comfort to boot!" Peter from Massachusetts
"Hi. Mr. James Alexander here just writing to say that I received my PD Band today and it is fantastic and comfortable. One of the best things is that you really don't feel any irritation like you get with tape, and I am safe in the knowledge that my tube is safe from getting pulled. So, thanks again for this wonderful product!" James Alexander
"Thank you so much! This seems to be helping Christina a lot." Kathleen Mosier (mother)

"The Summer Light PD Security Band™ has been very useful to me during the initial stage of getting use to my catheter. It is not only comfortable and light, but I'm able to see through it for everything underneath which has been a big help."

"I'd like to compliment Sheila Shaw for this superb, inspiring, and much needed resource. It has such a strong, encouraging, and uplifting statement that can be utilized by the many who are trying to cope with life's health challenges. In a unique personal conversational tone that makes for easy listening, the CD delivers its completely believable message. Also, best of all, as the CD can be played in your car; it is always there for you. As you drive along listening, it can serve to help uplift sagging spirits! Let's not forget, the background music is fantastic!!! Mrs. Regina O'Neal -Evans
"Sheila's positive outlook on life and her personal story is so uplifting. Sheila's ability to cope with adversity is most inspiring. Whatever is your personal medical condition, you can relate it to her history and handle it with positive guidance and direction." Freda Amsel, Cancer Survivor
"If you only ever buy one inspirational CD, make it this one. On one level it's a powerful and really helpful guide to living life as fully as possible even with a chronic illness. But at a broader, more spiritual level it's a guide to empowering yourself to triumph over any and all adversity. There are tons of supposedly inspirational CDs out there. But this is the real McCoy. Because Sheila Shaw knows what she's talking about. She suffered catastrophic kidney failure, followed by years of peritoneal dialysis. The extraordinary Ms. Shaw has a passion for life that's only surpassed by her passion for helping others. So, not only did she come back from the edge of darkness and get her life back together, and not only does she really and truly her live at full tilt (although maybe not everyone would react to kidney failure by taking up motorcycle racing!), but---and this is typical of her positive attitude---she was so upset by the uncomfortable, insecure and often downright injurious medical supports that dialysis patients---even tiny babies---had to endure to hold their catheters in place that Sheila decided to take matters into her own hands: She invented, developed and perfected her own custom-made design to secure catheters in a way that gives patients complete comfort, total freedom of movement, and a sense of security---none of which they never had from the mass-produced alternatives. And---again, typical of Sheila's passion---she didn't stop at creating the ideal product. She co-founded a company to make it: Patient's' Pride. Today everyone who uses Patient's Pride products, and all the medical personnel who are familiar with them, acknowledge them as by far the best catheter support systems in the world. See what I mean about empowering yourself? Sheila is the living proof that her approach works. And in this CD she tells you everything to help you follow---well, if not in her tire-tracks, at least in her footsteps. Soon you too could be on the path to living your life to the full!" Chris Gregory
"Sheila Shaw's passion and unwavering empathy for others shines through in her inspiring CD, FULL TILT: How to Reclaim Your Life In Spite Of Living with a Chronic Illness. Her personal experience, her amazing attitude and her wonderful ability of relating to (and caring about) people will bring hope to anyone who's ever thought "where do I go from here"? Sheila's CD is an invaluable gift, a must-have tool, for the medical professional."
"I thought this CD would be perfect for my Uncle who is currently a dialysis patient. What I found when I listened to Full Tilt was how inspiring and empowering it was for ME. The Doctors OATH blew me away! What a powerful way to let everyone know what medical professionals really "sign on for" when they commit to be a part of our health care. I think we sometimes forget that we have the right to expect excellence and respect when it comes to our biggest asset- our health. I have found myself thinking "Today is the first day of the rest of my life" when I wake up in the morning even on days I haven't listened to the cd. Knowing Full Tilt has already had that type of impact is Amazing! I would highly recommend this cd to anyone who desires a positive force throughout the day."
