Washington, DC — Paralyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) is pleased to announce that Men’s Liberty is supporting Paralyzed Veterans’ Mission: ABLE campaign, by donating $20,000 to the organization, and helping to raise awareness through their own customer base.
“We are honored to support Mission: ABLE and the Paralyzed Veterans of America. Men's Liberty can be a game changer for so many men with incontinence, including our wounded heroes. I am appalled at the poor fluid management options available to the men and women who have served our country and whose injuries have radically changed their lives. Our service men and women deserve the absolute best, not to be held hostage by condom catheters and diapers. We look forward to working with Paralyzed Veterans and Mission: ABLE to support our wounded heroes in getting the care they need and opening the door to the job opportunities and training they deserve,” said Gary Damkoehler, CEO of BioDerm, Inc, the company that created the Men’s Liberty product.
Men’s Liberty was developed in 2006 with the goal of solving one of the most pervasive health issues today, urinary incontinence. More than 1 million Men’s Liberty units have been sold without a single reportable adverse event caused by Men’s Liberty, including UTI or skin injury.

Paralyzed Veterans’ Mission: ABLE campaign was designed to enlist Americans—citizens, communities and corporations—to help ensure our paralyzed heroes are provided the physical care needed to live a healthy life, receive the benefits they’ve earned through military service and have the resources to obtain job training and opportunities for new and fulfilling careers.
“We thank Men’s Liberty for joining us in our mission of ensuring that our veterans get the care, benefits and jobs they’ve earned and deserve,” said Bill Lawson, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America. “Without the support of companies like Men’s Liberty, we wouldn’t be able to provide all the programs and services to our veterans that they need in order to live full, productive and independent lives.”
Paralyzed Veterans of America was founded by a group of seriously injured American heroes from the “Greatest Generation” of World War II. They created a nonprofit organization to meet the challenges that they faced back in the 1940s — from a medical community not ready to treat them to an inaccessible world. For more than six decades, Paralyzed Veterans’ national office and its 34 chapters across the nation have been making America a better place for all veterans and people with disabilities.
