Orland Park Teenager with Cerebral Palsy Receives Life-Changing Gift from Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co.

Sophia Jablonski Chosen as the Illinois’s First Recipient of Safe Step Cares

CHICAGO, June 25, 2014 – Naheda Jablonski is a widowed mother of two teenage girls, Sophia and Stephanie. Sophia has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Until recently, the only way Sophia could bathe was if her mother physically lifted her into a tub and bathed with her.

Ms. Jablonski is 4’11″, recently had back surgery and her daughter is as big as her, which makes bathing a complete physical challenge. Naheda is well known in the Orland Park community for her fundraising efforts for others’ causes. She keeps her daughters involved in Girl Scouts and dancing (even Sophia is in a dance group for disabled students).

Many in the community, as well as the village itself, have come to her assistance because of her past deeds. Her church remodeled the lower level of her home so a ramp could be installed. They also repainted the interior of the house. When her local bank heard she was facing foreclosure, they stepped up and refinanced her with a 40-year loan she could afford.

In looking for ways to ease her daughter’s pain and grant her independence, she reached out to the Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. It’s important to note, she was interested in purchasing the tub and was not asking for help. It was determined that Ms. Jablonski was unable to afford the tub for her daughter. But, rather than simply moving on, the sales representative who met with Ms. Jablonski, Don Ball, asked his company to help.

And they did.

Safe Step, which routinely receives numerous letters for tub donations, recognized that Ms. Jablonski was making a difference in her church and community, but she needed assistance for her daughter with a disability. So the company decided to make a difference for the Orland Park teenager and her family. Through its award-winning national program of giving, Safe Step Cares, the Nashville-based company delivered and installed the tub that will change the family’s life.

At no cost to the family.

“We were moved by the Jablonski’s story and Safe Step is in the business of changing the lives of our neighbors and friends, every day” said Craig Dauffenbach, CEO and owner of Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. of Minnesota, Inc., who chose the Jablonski family as the Safe Step Cares recipient. “We felt the family could really benefit from our tub and we are thrilled to help them with something that will change their lives.”

Local Teenager with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis Receives Surprise Life-Changing Gift from Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co.

Helena, Alabama Resident Anna Grace McDonald Chosen as the State’s First Recipient of Safe Step Cares

HELENA, Alabama (March 13, 2014) – Three years ago, when Anna Grace McDonald was 10, she could outrun every kid in her class. But it wasn’t easy. Anna Grace was in pain, a lot of pain. She told her parents that her body hurt everywhere. It was initially diagnosed as growing pains, but it got worse. Over time, the little girl who could round the bases more quickly than anyone in the league couldn’t run the bases at all. She was crawling out of bed and could barely walk due to pain and stiffness.

Anna Grace was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), a chronic illness which can cripple children if left untreated. After years of pain, Anna Grace was able to begin treatment, expensive treatment, including Remicade infusions that cost $14,000 per month. Anna Grace worked toward remission with soaks in hot baths to get her joints moving. Two things were recommended to ease her pain: Heat therapy and water therapy.

At a Safe Step sponsored luncheon, Anna Grace spotted something that could provide both: a Safe-Step Walk-In Tub, the world’s best state of the art tub whose air jets and water jets could provide Anna Grace with numerous therapeutic benefits. So enamored with the tub, she got in and posed for a picture. But her parents knew that while the tub could ease Anna Grace’s pain, they simply couldn’t afford the tub. They had both suffered layoffs while Anna Grace was in treatment.

Anna’s mother Denise decided she wasn’t going to give up. So she wrote the company whose tub Anna Grace had fallen for. She told Safe Step the story of how Anna was looking at her disease as a ministry and she was going to educate as many people as possible about JIA. Anna Grace spoke at Arthritis Foundation events and created her own Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/JuvenileArthritisTips) to do just that. Denise didn’t expect a reply but she received one that has changed her little girl’s life.

Safe Step, which routinely receives numerous letters for tub donations, recognized that Anna Grace was making a difference in her school and community. So the company decided to make a difference for the Helena teenager. Through its award-winning national program of giving, Safe Step Cares, the Nashville-based company surprised Anna Grace with the very tub she fell in love with, at no cost to the family.

“We were moved by Anna Grace’s story and Safe Step is in the business of changing the lives of our neighbors and friends, every day” said Mike Duffer, president and founder of Safe Step Walk-In Tub. “We heard she loved our tub and we were thrilled to surprise her with something that has eased her pain and changed her life.”

Safe Step Cares Receives Gold Award from LACP, Named Top 15 Communications Campaign of 2013

Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co.’s National Program of Giving Recognized by League of American Communications Professionals

NASHVILLE, Tenn., January 22, 2014 – Safe Step Cares, the national program of giving created last year by Safe Step Walk-In Tub Company and its public relations agency of record DFPR, was honored with a Gold Award for communications excellence in the League of American Communications Professionals (LACP) 2013 Magellan Awards . The program was also recognized as one of the Top 25 Communications Campaigns of 2013, finishing #15 overall out of nearly 400 finalists.

“This year’s initiative for Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co., ‘Safe Step Cares’, proves to be remarkable in light of tremendous competition,” said Christine Kennedy, LACP Managing Director. “Overall, we find the work to be outstanding. We congratulate the entire team at Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. and DFPR for their caring program. We classify Safe Step Cares as being among the best communications programs of 2013.”

Nashville-based Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. is one of the nation’s leading walk-in tub providers, known for quality, service and affordability. The company was recently named “Walk-in Tub of the Year 2013″ by MySeniorSource.com and Walk-in-Tub-Reviews.com. Safe Step Cares, designed to benefit families, individuals and facilities in need of walk-in tubs based on need and circumstance, was cited as a differentiation point for the coveted Gold Award.

In 2013, Safe Step Cares considered numerous requests and honored several individuals and families with its state-of-the-art therapeutic tubs. Honorees included Tony Cato, a former quadriplegic injured by an uninsured drunk driver, David Scarbrough, who struggles with cerebral palsy, as well as Selena Yorke (a donation by Canadian Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co.) Jazmyne Harris and Amy and Emily Templeton, all of whom share a rare yet severely debilitating degenerative disorder called Friedreich’s Ataxia.

Safe Step Cares also awarded two tubs to Crestview Manor, a low-income assisted living facility, after it learned that its bathing conditions were in need of improvement. Safe Step also donated “Toilet Paper for Life” to Crestview Manor, when it heard its 60 residents were playing Bingo for toilet paper.

“Safe Step changes lives every day,” said Mike Duffer, president and founder of Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. “Through Safe Step Cares, we’ve been pleased to provide those in need with the opportunity for safety, comfort and independence. We are pleased with the recognition but even more thrilled to change lives, one Safe Step at a time.”

“It is an honor and a privilege to work with such a caring company,” said DFPR president Derek Farley, whose agency helped implement the Safe Step Cares initiative. “From day one, they said, ‘let’s do the right thing and change lives.’ And that’s exactly what Safe Step Cares has done and will continue to do.”

NASHVILLE, Tenn., January 20, 2014 – Safe Step Walk-In Tub Company has been named “Walk-in Tub of the Year 2013″ by MySeniorSource.com and Walk-in-Tub-Reviews.com. The Nashville-based family company received the coveted Gold Star Award as part of the honor, which is determined by walk-in-tub customers.

In addition to evaluating reviews of Safe Step’s product and business practices on their own merit, Thomas cited the company’s national program of giving, Safe Step Cares, as a key differentiating factor for the prestigious award. “Safe Step’s ratings were already higher than the rest, but their community involvement and caring spirit is what put it over the top. We thank Safe Step for changing so many lives with such an outstanding product and caring team.”

“We are humbled yet deeply gratified knowing that this award is a ‘people’s choice’ award, determined by customers,” said Mike Duffer, president and founder of Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. “To be rated as the ‘best of the best’ is a real honor that I proudly share with the entire Safe Step family and our valued customers.”

Two Families Receive Life-Changing Gifts from Safe Step Walk-In Tub. Co.

INDIANAPOLIS, December 19, 2013 – It began with a letter to a company in Nashville about a teenage girl in Indianapolis with a rare, life threatening disease.

Nathan Hand, a friend of the girl’s family, wrote to Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co., which had recently donated a state-of-the art therapeutic tub through its nationwide program of giving, Safe Step Cares. The recipient, Selena Yorke, suffers from Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA), a rare neuromuscular disorder that affects every cell in her body as well as her heart. Hand was looking for a helping hand for his friend, Virgil Harris.

Virgil’s 15-year-old daughter Jazmyne also has Friedreich’s Ataxia, a severely debilitating, degenerative disorder which is inherited at birth. So determined to give Jazmyne the quality of life she deserves, Virgil set up a foundation, Jumpin’ for Jazz, to tell her story, increase awareness about FA and raise funds to offset her medical bills. Hand thought the therapeutic tub would be perfect for the family.

Safe Step, which routinely receives numerous letters for tub donations, loved the letter and Jazmyne’s story and decided to help. But the company got a big surprise when they called Virgil to let him know.  Virgil told Safe Step that the Templetons, another Indianapolis family who has two college-age daughters with FA, were more deserving. If there was one tub to give, Virgil said, give it to the Templetons.

Amazed by Virgil’s thoughtfulness, Safe Step decided that one tub wasn’t enough in Indianapolis, so it decided that the Templeton family, at Virgil’s suggestion, would receive the tub for their daughters Amy and Emily, while Jazmyne would receive an additional tub too.

“I am so grateful for this gift,” said Harris. “I show my enthusiasm because Jazmyne will benefit but I am so thankful that the Templetons got their tub as well.”

Virgil’s thoughtfulness was not lost on the Templetons.

“Virgil’s selflessness, and what Safe Step did in providing two tubs, is just unbelievable,” said Paul Templeton, Amy and Emily’s father. “Safe Step came in here and immediately you could tell that they were looking out for us, caring about our needs.”

Earlier this year, Safe Step launched its Safe Step Cares program, in which the company rewards those in need on a regular basis at no cost.

“We’re a family company and the connections we make along the way are so important to us that we wanted to be here to show them that they are now a part of our family,” said Andi Allender, Safe Step’s director of marketing. “As a result of Safe Step Cares, three girls in Indianapolis are going to gain independence and actually feel better when they bathe.”

“Safe Step is in the business of changing the lives of our neighbors and friends, every day” said Safe Step CFO Stuart Hall, who made the trip from Nashville to Indianapolis to present the tubs in person with Allender at both residences. “We are pleased to be able to provide Jazmyne, Emily and Amy more safety and comfort as they cope with the effects of this unforgiving disease.”

Perhaps Amy and Emily’s mother, Shawna Templeton, summed the event up best: “For ten years, we’ve been like ‘what are we going to do?’ and then to have this all given to us today, I’m just amazed. I’m overwhelmed by the generosity, the love, the friendship and the beauty of it all.”

Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. Makes Surprise ‘Miracle Donation’ to Low-Income Assisted Living Facility

CRESTVIEW, Florida – August 6, 2013 – It all started with a message to Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. via its Facebook page: one short paragraph with two not-so-small requests from Crestview Manor in Crestview, Florida.

The first was for one of Safe Step’s walk-in tubs to bring comfort to 60 men and women of the low-income assisted living facility, whose residents include veterans, military widows and mentally challenged patients.

The second request was simple enough but not immediately in the company’s wheelhouse: toilet paper.

Shirley Perring, who sent the message to Safe Step, explained the residents’ plight: “The facility is old but well kept. The tub is dangerous and looks like something out of ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ and we knew there was a huge need for an upgrade. Further, the needs for the residents here are so basic. It includes something most people take for granted: toilet paper. So, I included it in my request.”

Mike Duffer, president and owner of Nashville-based Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. received the message and decided to do what he could to make the residents’ lives better. Through Safe Step Cares, the company’s nationwide program of giving, Duffer decided to donate two of his Nashville-based company’s state-of-the-art walk-in tubs, one for each floor of Crestview Manor. To top things off, Safe Step will provide “Toilet Paper for Life” for Crestview Manor.

“We’re a very blessed company and it’s a pleasure and a privilege to be able to make these life-changing donations,” said Duffer. “The second request took us by surprise but we decided to make toilet paper something that these deserving seniors never have to worry about again.”

Duffer, his wife Kathie and several Safe Step executives traveled to Crestview, Florida to meet the residents recently. They treated them to a catered lunch, brought each resident a gift basket and made the donation announcement in person.

“This is truly a miracle donation,” said Crestview Manor’s director Becky Brice-Nash. “Safe Step proved they really do care. It was a donation of a lifetime for some very special people, and beyond our wildest dreams.”

Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. Revisits the Inspiration behind Safe Step Cares

‘Soaky’ – a September 2012 Gift from Safe Step – Proves to be a Life-Changer for 13-Year Old with Cerebral Palsy and Spurs Nationwide Program of Giving

NASHVILLE, Tennessee – May 22, 2013 – David Scarbrough weighed 18 ounces at birth. At age three, he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. As David grows, his muscles struggle to keep up, but his spirit more than makes up for it. Now 13, David is a Boy Scout and the MVP of his Tee Ball League. He loves dogs, four-wheeling and collects, of all things, keys. He has hundreds on a key ring on a bike he keeps in his backyard.

But the key to David’s heart and his rehabilitation is inside his home. He calls it Soaky.

In September of 2012, David’s mother, Ronette, was advised by David’s doctors to seek out a walk-in tub to assist with David’s mobility and therapy. Faced with rising medical costs from David’s care, Ronette took her quest for the walk-in tub online.

Andrea Allender, director of marketing at Nashville-based Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co., one of the nation’s leading walk-in tub providers, discovered the fundraising effort online and asked Safe Step’s President and Owner Mike Duffer to change the Scarbrough’s’ lives in an instant, and forever.

“I found Ronette and David’s story online and knew we could make a difference,” said Allender. “So I walked into Mike’s office and said, ‘Mike, we have to give them a tub.’ Mike didn’t hesitate. He decided on the spot to make the donation to assist the Scarbroughs.”

When the home office called Ronette, her response was a little more than subtle.

“Oh my gosh, you guys are awesome,” said Ronette. “I can’t believe this is happening.”

Soaky, you see, is a Safe Step’s state of the art, top of the line walk-in tub, which was donated by Safe Step at no cost. David uses the tub up to 7 times a day. His doctors, who recommended Safe Step by name, are as pleased as his mother.

“Since we’ve had the tub, David’s mobility has improved. The swelling in his knees has been reduced dramatically,” said Ronette. “When his doctors and therapists heard about the donation, they were amazed and thrilled because they knew the therapeutic benefits of the tub were immense.”

Six months after the installation, Safe Step revisited Susanville, California to check in on the Scarbroughs. And Soaky.

“We’re here today because we care,” said Safe Step representative Derek Farley. “We wanted to see the impact of the donation. We found that the tub is used every day, multiple times a day, and that it’s really become a member of the family.”

David and Ronette’s story inspired Safe Step’s nationwide initiative called, appropriately, Safe Step Cares.

Omaha, Nebraska’s Anthony (Tony) Cato, Jr., a former quadriplegic disabled by an uninsured drunk driver, received Safe Step’s first official Safe Step Cares donation in early April. He was able to take a bath unassisted for the first time in years.

In late April, Canadian Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. employees were so moved by a story about Selena Yorke, an 11-year old Surrey, British Columbia girl with Friedreich’s Ataxia, that they asked their president Robert J. Hartley II to help. He responded by donating a tub as well as a shower to assist Selena’s family as they remodel their home to accommodate their beloved daughter. Canadian Safe Step even brought Selena her tub in a box in her favorite color: purple.

In Susanville since November, Soaky has provided comfort, safety, convenience and independence for David, even Ronette.

“It’s been a life-changing experience in our home,” said Ronette. “Thank you just doesn’t seem enough.”

Canadian Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. Delivers Life-Changing Gifts In a Big Purple Box to Surrey 11-Year Old with Friedreich’s Ataxia

Fundraiser Brings Additional $26,000 for Langley Meadows Community School 5th Grader Selena Yorke, Canadian Safe Step’s First ‘Safe Step Cares’ Honoree

SURREY, British Columbia, April 16, 2013 – Selena Yorke is a charming, inspirational and hope-provoking 11-year old girl. She has incredibly caring parents, great friends and a very supportive older brother. She shares her birthday and a passion for the color purple with Justin Bieber, whom she adores. She also has a disease: Friedreich’s Ataxia, an unforgiving, progressive neuromuscular disorder for which there is no cure.

Canadian Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. employees were so moved by Selena’s story that they asked their president Robert J. Hartley II to step up for Selena and her family. On the company’s behalf and at its employees’ behest, Hartley said yes, twice. Safe Step donated its top-of-the-line walk-in tub as well as a walk-in shower to the Yorkes as part of the company’s Safe Step Cares program, a nationwide initiative to provide state-of-the-art tubs to those in need.

Canadian Safe Step even brought her tub in a box in her favorite color: purple. “Whoa!” said Selena, as the purple box was removed to reveal her gift. “It’s got a bar, it’s got jets, it’s like a hot tub,” she continued before getting into the tub.

Safe Step says Selena is the first Canadian recipient – and second overall – of Safe Step Cares and that the company intends to keep giving back to the communities it serves on a regular basis. “Today is about Selena,” said Hartley. “She is a delightful young lady and we’re here to assist her in her quality of life. Safe Step changes lives every day and we could not be more thrilled to change Selena’s life today.”

Selena’s day did not end with the tub and shower donation. Friends and family pulled together A Night for Selena at the Cascades Casino Resort in Langley. The event raised more than $26,000, which will be used for necessary for renovations on the Yorke’s home to accommodate their beloved daughter. Additional donations can be made through Toronto Dominion Bank, account #9194-524-1677, cheque/check payable to A Night for Selena.

“It’s great to know that you have support and that you don’t have to do this alone,” said Selena’s brother.

“To get this type of help from people, some you don’t even know, is overwhelming,” added Selena’s father Brad Yorke.

“We have such amazing friends and family,” said Selena’s mother Cari Yorke. “Safe Step not only gave a Selena a tub and shower but they also have given her comfort and independence and brought awareness to her disease. This gift to us is life-changing because Selena loves baths.” She also loved the purple box.

Former Quadriplegic Disabled by Uninsured Drunk Driver Receives a ‘Miracle’ from Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co.

Tony Cato, Once a University of Nebraska – Lincoln Basketball Star, Becomes First Honoree of Safe Step Cares Program

OMAHA, Neb., April 8, 2013 – Tony Cato is getting used to miracles. In September, 2007 his doctors told the former University of Nebraska – Lincoln basketball star he’d never walk again. They ate their words just months later when Tony surprised friends by taking his first steps since being declared a quadriplegic following an accident involving an uninsured drunk driver.

Tony, who walks on his own but still suffers partial paralysis, recently received a surprise of his own, as representatives from Nashville-based Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. arrived in Omaha to bring Tony its top-of-the-line walk-in tub free of charge as part of the Safe Step Cares program. Cato couldn’t escape tears as he walked slowly down his porch steps to see his new tub.

“This is a miracle,” said Cato. “I wasn’t sure I was ever going to be able to take a bath again, but now I can.”

Tony has undergone 12 surgeries since the wreck and his mother says his medical bills are in the millions. In a conversation with his friend Jennifer Galloway in January, Tony was asked if he could have one thing, what it would be. His answer: a tub. So she wrote several leading walk-in tub companies requesting consideration for a donation.

“I took a chance but didn’t know if it would turn into anything,” said Galloway. “But it was on my heart, so I wanted to give it my best shot for Tony.”

Only one company responded: Safe Step.

“We heard his story, how he had fought back, never quit, never complained and made time to speak to the dangers of drunk driving in between volunteering at the VA among other community endeavors, and we said, ‘this is our guy, let’s swoop in and show him Safe Step cares,” said Omaha native and Safe Step’s corporate marketing manager Danielle Revelette, who flew in to be a part of Tony’s special moment. “We are here to change his life,” added Revelette.

Safe Step says that Tony is the first recipient of Safe Step Cares but the company intends to keep giving back to the communities it serves on a regular basis.

“Safe Step’s business is about changing lives,” said Safe Step executive Stuart Hall, who also came to Omaha to meet Tony. “When I saw the look on his face as he walked out to see the tub, I knew that we had done the right thing. Safe Step is here because we care about Tony.”

Tony’s first words upon seeing the completed install: “Wow, this is unbelievable. All I can say is this makes me feel human again. Now get out of here so I can take a bath (his first on his own in more than five years).”
