On a Friday, I contacted The Cardiac Bear to see if they might be able to help me send a cardiac bear overnight to Canada. I spoke to Lynette Evans, owner of the Cardiac Bear about one hour before FedEx was going to be closing. She was extraordinarily helpful in getting the bear to FedEx on time. She worked extra hard to get me copies of the shipping documents.
To our surprise the bear was actually delivered the next morning in Western Canada. My sister started using it immediately and was incredibly appreciative of the comfort she felt when coughing.
This was a great mission of mercy, with a cardiac bear being delivered overnight from Ohio to Western Canada, all thanks to the very personal service provided by The Cardiac Bear. Now, that was a Merry Christmas!!

I first met Lynette several years ago at a Downtown Business Alliance meeting, where we have a common interest in downtown Springfield, Ohio.
She is hard working, passionate, and gives great support to the Downtown Business Alliance and the Center City Association. They specialize not only in custom made gift baskets, but personalized gifts like teddy bears, mugs, pen and pencil sets and I especially recommend the chocolate truffles!

Great news, Your bear has arrived... My mum loves your bear she's so happy & great full for your prayers. Thanks again for all your help.
Sincerely, Melissa | Sydney, Australia
Melissa from Sydney, Australia is writing again: Mum had her surgery on Tuesday and is doing amazingly well, has started Physio & is sitting up in a chair. We brought the bear over to her today.
She has received lots of comments about how gorgeous her bear is. It brings my Mum great comfort especially when she is alone in the room!

I came across [The Cardiac Bear's] marketing information and could just visualize the bear. It is a really great idea and can also make cardiac and other operations less threatening for children whose parent is going through it (because the Cardiac Bear is helping them out).
I also hope that the bears either are sent home with patients or trialed with a succession of patients. As an aside, the team member who hand-carried the bear to the patient was also enthusiastic as she had had a Caesarian and could really relate.

Thank you so much Mrs Lynette I really enjoy the cardiac bear I talk to him every day I sleep with him by my side In case I have to sneeze or something.
I really enjoyed Christmas. we spent time with each other and it's Jesus's day too its his birthday that's the most important part that we celebrate Jesus's birthday and spend time with family and have FUN. Well I hope you had fun and enjoyed Christmas and I really appreciate the email it brightened up my day hope you had a merry Christmas and hope you have a happy and healthy NEW year!!
Herb is doing well from the triple By-pass surgery. He loves the bear!! They have been to the Waffle House and grocery store. Turd rides in Herb's cart.
It is a joy to see a man that is "man" enough to carry a Cardio-bear. So much firmer and fits the chest better when having the coughing spells than the heart pillow he left the hospital with.

One thing that really sets [The Cardiac Bear & Xpand Your Brand] apart from their competition and from vendors in general, is how they consistently go above and beyond to exceed expectations.
They do little things to make all their customer service experiences stand out. For example, I order holiday gifts for over 3000 employees, so I seek a lot of ideas and samples from a variety of vendors. They certainly make my job of deciding which vendor I want to do business with a lot easier!
I highly recommend Lynette Evans to anyone seeking high quality products, exceptional customer care at a very fair price. Lynette is a shining example of a great busines leader who dedicates herself to making her business the best it can be.
