Career Football Coach, Don Horton, was having trouble at work when his wife stepped in and became his greatest teammate.
Maura Horton wanted to help her husband deal with his diagnosis of Parkinsons disease even when she couldnt be physically with him. Don came home from work complaining about a bad day because a player had to help him button his shirt.
So Maura tapped into her background as a childrens clothing designer and started thinking of other shirt solutions.
She immediately thought of magnets but it took seven prototypes to find ones that could withstand washing.
Magnaready was born and Mauras designs quickly got support from the big leagues.
Hall of famer Johnny Bench owns four.
Maura hopes a major retailer will pick up Magnaready someday soon.
