Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and innovative healthwear company Care+Wear are proud to announce the launch of the SU2C Care+Wear PICC Line Cover to better the treatment experience of patients receiving cancer therapies through a PICC Line (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter).
The soft and stretchy Cover, which features the SU2C logo, is designed to eliminate some of the challenges of having a PICC Line by securely covering the PICC, while allowing for breathability and visibility of the PICC line site and dressing.

The SU2C Care+Wear PICC Line Cover allows for easy monitoring of the PICC site for dislodgement, leakage or infection by clinicians, patients and caregivers through the patent-pending mesh window, while simultaneously providing airflow to the site for proper dressing functionality. The Cover is also coated in antimicrobial treatment and is machine-washable to ease the burden on patients and caregivers during treatment.
