Inspired by wife, Peter Lamoureux opens Silver Cross business
When Peter Lamoureux’ wife Ann’s mobility became compromised after being diagnosed with multiples sclerosis, he learned first hand the high cost of in-home medical supplies that assist patients with mobility needs.
Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the central nervous system with symptoms including fatigue, loss of balance, poor muscle coordination and vision issues. Ann was diagnosed with the disease 10 years ago. Lamoureux said he did not want his wife to lose access to any part of their two-story Wheaton home, so they installed chair lifts and railings to provide assistance.
Fast forward a few years to a time Lamoureux, who worked in sales for a pulp company, found himself between careers. Remembering the cost of the lifts and other equipment installed in their home, Lamoureux began to look into the medical supply field. He turned to Silver Cross, a Canadian-based medical supply company that specializes in selling gently used medical equipment – equipment similar to what he installed for his wife in their home. Because the equipment sold by Silver Cross is used, it’s available for a fraction of the cost of new equipment, Lamoureux said.
