Trach This! trach holder straps

Posted Aug 07 2009 12:41am

I've been wearing a tracheostomy tube for a year and a quarter as a result of chemo/radiation to my neck.  I have searched high and low for trach holder straps that are fun and funky but all I've found are the utilitarian spongy straps that you get from medical supply companies.  So Tom (my male half!) and I got some materials and made some straps that I liked.  We started out with some faded denim with chrome grommets and some leather and suede.  We found some silver clasps and charms and put some straps together.  We're going to the Green Bay Packers vs Tennessee Titans exhibition game in Nashville in a few weeks and I'll be decked out in my Packer Backer attire with a nice green and gold trach holder strap. 

I know there are other people out there who also wear a trach and would like an alternative choice to either augment or replace the current spongy straps they're wearing now.  Check out our website:  or check out my facebook photo album:

If you wear a trach - please contact me and say hi!  If you don't but know someone who does - please pass this on to them.
