#stopthespread

We are Doctors Stefano Militello and Anthony LaLama owners of Premier Foot & Ankle PLLC.  We are a podiatry office located in Southeast Michigan.  Due to the coronavirus our private offices have pretty much been shut down.  We are still on staff at local hospitals  where we continue to treat patients with diabetic and venous wounds.  It is our obligation to prevent these patients from being admitted with serious infections further putting more burden on the hospital system.  This, however, still allows for extra time due to office closures.   With that extra time we wanted to help out our fellow colleagues who are working on the front lines to battle this devastating virus.  

We came up with the idea of wristbands to show our support and solidarity to our fellow healthcare workers.  The wristband is a reminder that there are people fighting this battle willing to forego their own safety to help others.  It's a reminder that we all need to do our own part in helping them in any way we can.  A reminder to help  #stopthespread by following  federal and local guidelines.

We are asking for donations for the Ascension St. John Foundation as well as the state of Michigan.   These funds are intended to support our physicians,  nurses, and aides with food, health, child care and other hardships during this period.   These local heroes are placing theirs and and the health of their families on the line in caring for patients.  

Donations to the state of Michigan will be used to meet medical providers’ most pressing needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Below are the material donations most needed by health care facilities: 

Masks: NIOSH N95 or better
Ventilators
Sanitizer (Hand/Wipes)
Gloves
Surgical Masks (No handmade)
Hospital Gowns
No-Touch Thermometers

********************  PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS BELOW TO OBTAIN YOUR WRISTBANDS  ********************

Every little bit helps but with a donation of at least $5 we will be sending you a #StoptheSpread wristband.  In order to send you a #stopthespread wristband please email your address to premierfa.pllc@gmail.com , DM your address to premierfootankle via instagram,  or leave us a private message via facebook  Premier Foot & Ankle PLLC.
