Second Chance: Kelly O’Brien

Veteran Kelly O'Brien stands in his kitchen, his army veteran hats in the foreground. He stands behind the counter behind knick knacks, an aloe vera plant on the table.

Kelly O’Brien talks about how a piece of technology from Tactile Medical saved his life.

Lymphedema results from damage to the lymph nodes and can cause swelling in the appendages. If go untreated, it can make the sufferer’s life very, very difficult. In Kelly O’Brien’s case, life was becoming so difficult that he confesses to having thoughts of “ending it.” But thankfully, he discovered Tactile Medical’s FlexiTouch technology. Ever since being introduced to FlexiTouch, Kelly has been able to regain his freedom and his life, enough to live comfortably and happily with his beloved dog.
