As we all sat down to determine his needs and the best and safest process to allow him to bathe alone your company's shower and walk-in tub seemed to be the answer to our prayers. I think your walk-in tub would be more beneficial to him than an accessible shower because he would be able to use the jet feature to ease joint, back, knee, and overall pain. If he is chosen to receive one of your tubs, his independence and confidence will increase greatly; thus improving his quality of life. Mike has constantly told everyone that one of his final steps in his recovery would love to be able to bathe alone. He tells me each and every day that all he wants from me is to go back to smiling like I used to. It is hard for me to see him struggle so much with the easiest of tasks.
This letter reached the desk of the president of Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co., one of the world’s leading providers of state-of-the-art hydrotherapeutic walk-in tubs. Duffer started a national program of giving called Safe Step Cares, which provides FREE tubs to those in need. In the past three years, Safe Step Cares has donated approximately 1 tub per month to individuals who are active in the community and/or who have served our country but who are unable to afford the tub. Duffer made Mike Rollins the first Georgia recipient of the program.
Rollins’ tub was delivered ceremoniously and was provided at no charge to the Rollins family. Duffer and his Safe Step Cares team flew in to present Mike and Peggy with their new tub.
“Safe Step is in the business of changing lives every day and we know our tub will be of great benefit to both Mike and Peggy,” said Duffer. “They’ve been through a lot, have both served our country and we are looking forward to our product making a positive impact on them both.”
