SCHOFIELD, Wis., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PuraMed BioScience®, Inc., (OTCBB: PMBS), a researcher, developer, and marketer of over-the-counter (OTC) medicinal and healthcare products, announced today that the company is a corporate sponsor of Operation Troop Aid.
"We are pleased to sponsor Operation Troop Aid," said Russell Mitchell, CEO and Chairman of PuraMed BioScience. "Research shows that many service men and women in combat zones experience migraines much more frequently than the general population. Providing those people with LipiGesic® M, our highly effective migraine medication, can help them relieve migraines while they are serving our country."
Currently, Operation Troop Aid ships between 15 and 20 thousand individual care packages overseas to deployed service men and women each year. Operation Troop Aid's future expansion plans include a veteran's care network that will incorporate music therapy and recovery retreats in addition to the development of a special care-package program for children whose mothers or fathers are deployed.
"We appreciate PuraMed's generous donation of LipiGesic M to our program," said Mark H. Woods, LT (03-E) USN Ret, CEO of Troop Aid. "Our Troops have been on exhaustive arduous deployments during the last 13 years. Some have been deployed as many as 10 times. Operation Troop Aid care packages provide our troops with encouragement from home and proof that people in their homeland care about them and appreciate what they are doing."
"Operation Troop Aid's mission to provide assistance and encouragement to military personnel and veterans aligns with our passion to help people who suffer from debilitating migraines," said Mitchell. "We know that many service men and women who have experienced combat have a higher incidence of migraine, which is often accompanied by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Introducing military personnel to LipiGesic M during deployment can also help them as they return to civilian life, especially if they experience PTSD, since LipiGesic M does not interfere with commonly prescribed PTSD medications. We look forward to working with Operation Troop Aid."
