About PoppyMed

Hi, I’m Julie, the Founder of the PoppyPocket, a medical device transporting system.  In 2007 doctors diagnosed my Dad (Poppy) with colorectal cancer, and he came home with a chemotherapy infusion pump inside a fanny pack.  After watching Poppy struggle with the tubes snagging on; car doors, desks, sinks and even the sheets at night, I decided to create a better solution, the PoppyPocket.  It safely, comfortably and discreetly contained the “pump system” beneath his clothes which allowed him a better quality of life.  He slept better at night because the tubes were safely contained, which meant keeping the port properly positioned.  He also regained his dignity at work being discreet, and enjoyed daily activities better with my mom. Most patients don’t talk about going to the bathroom, but it was a struggle for my dad having the tubes and fanny pack hanging down, so this was another added benefit with the PoppyPocket securely containing everything for my dad. The PoppyPocket continues to grow today, helping thousands of patients in over 1,700 oncology facilities.  I was amazed after launching PoppyPocket how many nurses reached out  about other medical conditions that needed a safer way to transport medical devices. So, thankfully the PoppyPocket also aids patients that need antibiotic infusions, Pulmonary Hypertension medications, pain management infusions and many more treatments.

I am thrilled to hear so many stories of patients experiencing better nights of sleep, enjoying more activities, wearing clothes again that make them feel pretty.  And most importantly, patients are regaining their dignity.

~I hope your PoppyPocket helps with the challenges of treatment for a better quality of life.
