A friend once told me, 'Buy a spa, it is cheaper than marriage counseling!' I would like to think that the spa was our family counselor for those first 10 months…Now we have a Bullfrog and are soaking in it daily. Von does cannonballs into it and...well...all seems right in the world.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 27, 2009
Bullfrog Spas International, manufacturer of innovative portable hot tubs, has partnered with The Make-a-Wish Foundation to make children's wishes come true. Recently, Von, a four-year old Minnesota boy, who is battling Leukemia, made a wish for a hot tub to help ease the pains of his cancer treatments. Bullfrog was happy to help and made a donation of one of their larger hot tub models so that not only Von would benefit, but Von's family can also participate in his soothing hydrotherapy.
In recent correspondence, Von's father, Jason, expressed appreciation for the gift, which arrived at the family's home exactly one year from the time they first heard Von's diagnosis. He tells Bullfrog that, upon learning about the gift of a custom hot tub, Von's first words were "Is it a Bullfrog?" What an endorsement for the benefits of spa hydrotherapy made possible by Bullfrog's patented JetPak® hot tub jetting. Soothing hydrotherapy in a Bullfrog Spa alleviates much of the pain and discomfort faced by Von and others in his shoes in their battle for recovery and wellness.
In addition to the benefits of health and wellness offered by hot tub hydrotherapy, a Bullfrog Spa gives families the quality time needed to strengthen ties and bring them closer. Von's father tells of how they discovered the benefits of hydrotherapy for Von and how it also helped the rest of their family, "We lived the first 10 months of Von's treatments with my in-laws, having moved to the area to get Von treated. They had a hot tub. We quickly realized that the time in the hot tub was not only good for Von's body and seemed to give him renewed strength and agility, but it also was a very special place for us as a family to gather and talk and process all that was going on."
Bullfrog Spas create an ideal atmosphere and location for bring families, like Von's, together by offering a wide array of fun and relaxing JetPak® options for everyone to enjoy. Each member of the family can choose their own JetPak® massage; whether it's soft and soothing, deep tissue, or cool waterfalls and fun bubbles. The relaxing hot water and endless variety of JetPak® options provides something for everyone, not to mention the precious time away from TV, cell phones, video games, the internet, and all of the other distractions families face these days.
Von's father goes on to report, "The (leukemia) treatment is a 3.5 year process and the first year that is the most difficult is behind us. Von's hair is back and he is a mostly normal little guy. His chances of licking it are great as there is an 85% success rate in the treatment with few lifetime side effects." Bullfrog International is pleased to do something to help in Von's battle and express the sincerest well wishes. Everyone is cheering for Von!

Von's father expressed his appreciation, not only for the soothing hydrotherapy Von so needs, but also for the family therapy, "I can't tell you how especially meaningful it is to us that you helped make the larger spa possible. It means the whole family can enjoy it at the same time." "A friend once told me, 'Buy a spa, it is cheaper than marriage counseling!' I would like to think that the spa was our family counselor for those first 10 months…Now we have a Bullfrog and are soaking in it daily. Von does cannonballs into it and...well...all seems right in the world."
