Healincomfort® is pleased to announce it has been granted Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certification by the Women’s Business Council – Southwest Certification Committee.
WBENC certification provides the most widely recognized and respected certification in the United States for women’s business enterprises (WBE). This certification will enable healincomfort to connect with over 700 major corporations, non-profit organizations, as well as many local, state, and Federal government agencies. WBENC certification is an important marketing tool for expanding visibility among, and access to, decision makers in supplier diversity and procurement offices. Many corporations require WBENC-certification before providing access to their supplier diversity programs. WBCS also screens applicants for certification with the State of Texas as a Historically Underutilized Business (HUB). So, eligible businesses can receive both certifications through the WBCS in one application process. For more informaiton, visit http://www.wbcsouthwest.org/.
Founded in 2008 by breast cancer survivor, Cherie B. Mathews, healincomfort.com was established to help women heal in comfort and dignity after surgery and their battle against breast cancer. Inspired by her own post-operative experience — not being provided with the right equipment to go home in — Cherie designed a super- soft, moisture-management material shirt (patent pending) to keep the patient dry and comfortable. To date, 400 healincomfort shirts have been manufactured in the USA and gifted to Breast Cancer Centers across Texas to provide for local women. Healincomfort’s mission is to ensure that every woman is sent home with the proper equipment to heal in comfort in dignity after surgery, and encourges families, firends and local companies to get involved in the the “Gift a Shirt” program to provide Austin breast cancer patients with healincomfort shirts for same price as flowers ($45). Healincomfort was also awarded the austinwoman Magazine 2010 Small Business Grant, and a VIP Award by Cambridge Who’s Who for dedication, leadership and excellence in business management.
