"I just want to tell you again how much I love Arm Candy. It is exactly what I wanted.
I am really enjoying all your yummy flavors and feel so much better about my appearance.

they arrived. You are doing a great thing to help women feel and look beautiful!"
- Nancy Nagler, Needham, Massachusetts

"Arm Candy designs are sophisticated, and playful and can be worn with my jeans and t-shirts or
with a dress. Additionally, Arm Candy changed my view on lymphedema.  I no longer have to
look like I have lymphedema, instead I look like a fashion statement!" 
- Christine Guerra, Atlanta, Georgia

I just received my 4 "arm candy" covers and think they are absolutely AWESOME! 
I am going to wear the blue one today!!!  When we return from our trip, I am sure I will be ready to order
all of the other flavors I don't have......they are so "fun" to have, compared to the ugly compression sleeve. 
This definitely helps to make a "not-so-great" situation bearable now!
Thanks for all of your help and I wish you the very best!
- Kim Dunn, Covington, Ohio

"As a Breast Cancer Oncologist, I advise women to purchase compression sleeves for when they fly or exercise,
even if they don't have lymphedema.  Those women that do have it, have to wear a compression sleeve all the time. 
Warrior Wear, Inc. and their product, Arm Candy have made it easier for women everywhere to be fashionable yet  practical."
 -Alejandra Perez, MD, Hollywood, Florida

When I work out at the gym, the old sleeves I wore looked so medicinal and these are fun
and I feel less like a person with a medical condition and more like a funky fashion trend setter.
Thank you for the great product.  -Allison Haas, Tenafly, New Jersey

ARM CANDY SWEETENS THE LOOK FOR BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS

- NEW FASHION ACCESSORY THAT COVERS UNSIGHTLY compression sleeves -

Ft. Lauderdale, FL October 1, 2008 – Arm Candy, the first fashion accessory designed for breast cancer survivors who suffer from lymphedema or chronic arm swelling, is now available at www.warriorwear4u.com. Arm Candy fashion sleeves from Warrior Wear, Inc. are designed to cover unsightly medical compression sleeves that must be worn daily.  Arm Candy now makes it easier to wear short sleeves and strapless dresses by covering up in style.

Arm Candy is available in Nine yummy flavors and three sizes: The handcrafted, lightweight fashion sleeves cost $24.95 each.

 “Compression sleeves are important but they are pretty ugly and I felt ugly wearing one,” said Carolyn Newman, Warrior Wear, Inc. president and a cancer survivor. “I like to dress nicely but my compression sleeve made me look unfeminine and unstylish.  I knew there had to be an easy way to cover the compression sleeve and developed Arm Candy.   Now people complement my look instead of feeling sorry for me.”

Nearly 30 percent of breast cancer survivors experience lymphedema, an incurable and chronic side effect of surgery and radiation that causes the lymph nodes, limbs and extremities to swell. Medical compression sleeves are mandatory to reduce swelling and possible infection caused by lymphedema  and many breast cancer patients are advised to wear the sleeves prophylactically as well.   Medical compression sleeves come in one color – a light beige “band-aid” hue – making the task of wardrobe coordination almost impossible.

Arm Candy is available online and through select breast cancer boutiques.

About Warrior Wear, Inc.

Warrior Wear, Inc. creates and manufactures fashion accessories that add flair to medical devices, such as compression sleeves or prosthetics.  Diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in May 2006, Carolyn Newman had a radical bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction, chemotherapy and radiation.  Surviving that made her feel like a warrior.  She developed lymphedema soon after and was forced to wear a medical compression sleeve.  Needing a fashion update, Newman and her partners, designed arm sleeves that matched her outfits and Warrior Wear, Inc. was formed.  Today the company sells its Arm Candy line of fashion sleeves nationwide.  For more information, please visit www.warriorwear4u.com
