Founder of Chronically Fit Backpacks, Diana Donnarumma, began creating customized medical backpacks in 2016, inspired by her own personal battle with chronic illness. A recent college graduate, extremely driven to help others, became ill with Dysmotility of the stomach, including the small and large intestines. She considers herself a “girly-girl,” and the standardized medical grade backpacks for nutritional feeds only made her feel worse. She wanted to feel confident, fashion-forward, and trendy with her tubes and backpack, but after some online investigation, was left unsatisfied with what the market had to offer, so she decided to create her own backpack for parenteral nutrition (TPN) or enteral nutrition (tube feeds). Thus, Chronically Fit Backpacks was born, which chronic illness warriors now consider to be a perfect fit.
