California native Lloyd Jensen is a man on the go. A world traveler and a restaurant junkie, nothing has ever kept Lloyd from doing what he loves and desires in life. Lloyd was ready for a change from his local cuisine, and he planned a cruise, but not just any local cruise, Lloyd and his wife Wilma planned to cruise from Italy! However Lloyd’s doctor had put him on oxygen tanks, even though Lloyd fought the idea, as he valued his freedom too much. Lloyd had witnessed first hand as his cousin in-law struggled with tanks for years and he wasn’t going to fall victim to that routine. Travel can be especially difficult for those on o2. Lloyd found a portable oxygen concentrator from Open-Aire, proposed the idea to his doctor, and they finally agreed on how to settle the 'oxygen issue'. No more tanks! A few weeks after receiving his portable concentrator, LLoyd and Wilma, his wife of 49 years, packed their bags and boarded a plane in Los Angeles – destination Italy! It was quite the trip to get to Europe from California, first they landed in Newark, New Jersey and then they boarded another plane to Germany.
The flight was long, but they finally landed in Frankfurt. . . only to catch another plane to Venice, Italy. Lloyd never had to mess with his portable EverGo during the trip; he only had to change the batteries. He will tell you that managing the portable EverGo was the easiest part to the trip. Lloyd’s travel itinerary was a 15 day cruise from Venice back to the US, arriving in South Florida. By the time they boarded the cruise ship in Venice, they were both exhausted, they had flown for days! Overall, it was a great cruise as you can see by their beautiful photo taken aboard the ship on Formal Night. Magnifico! When they returned they were well rested, and ready to return to their local neighborhood restaurant. Lloyd says he ALWAYS sees someone on tanks at the restaurant, and it never fails, each time they ask him about his Open-Aire by EverGo. Lloyd can’t travel too far without getting questions about where he got his portable concentrator including his doctor's office, bingo, cruise vacations and out shopping. Lloyd is definitely changing the way his community is breathing each day. Bravissimo Lloyd!
