United Luv Project, a nonprofit out of Helena, Montana was created in memory of Ryan Eaton by his brother, Dallas Eaton. The two brothers originally began United Luv as a T-shirt company, but quickly changed focus when Ryan was diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, at age 25.
During his battle with cancer, Ryan wanted to give back to others. Having spent a great deal of time in hospitals and cancer treatment centers, Ryan quickly learned that there were limited options to pass the time while undergoing treatments. He also realized how many people had to fight the battle alone. He wanted to help those individuals to connect with friends and family and saw the iPad as the perfect tool.
Dallas, along with his parents Sheldon and Vicki, decided to use 100% of the proceeds from the United Luv t-shirt sales to purchase iPads and donate them to patients and hospitals throughout the country. Their donations have included the St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis, Children’s Hospital Colorado in Denver, the Ronald McDonald House, and many others.
Modafino is a luxury hair care brand lead by master stylist Tommy Ortiz, a Lincoln native, who holds years of experience in the salon industry, creating his own line of all-natural, organic products which provide exceptional results and have a minimal impact on the environment.
The Modafino brand prides itself on being made with organic, all-natural ingredients that have been formulated to nourish, strengthen, and enhance hair health. The facility that manufactures Modafino’s products is run on 100% renewable energy and all bottles are made from 100% recycled material. There are no toxic ingredients, harmful colors, harmful fragrances, and there is never any animal testing done with any ingredients in the Modafino products.
Modafino and United Luv are proud to come together to donate 30 iPads to Bryan Health Oncology units so that patients and families can connect with their loved ones they may be separated from, as well as pass the time during treatments and various medical procedures. Both companies are excited to build and maintain an impactful relationship with the Lincoln community.
