What's in the name
From Dr Cangas:
"Lydexar might sound like a clinical or even medical brand name, which is exactly what we were looking for. But do you know the meaning behind this made up word?
The name comes from letters from all of our kids names (Alexis, Ellyn, Oscar) and our niece Alydia.
Having children has changed my life is so many ways. Love I never imagined now fills me daily. These smart, funny, goofy, some times even annoying, little ones are the reason I do all of the things that I do. Thus, finding a way to use their names, was something I really wanted to do.
For those who don't know, our niece Alydia is gone from our lives way too early. As a way to honor her, we also included her name, and we plan to give a portion of all profits to Chad's Coalition.
So, when you see the brand in the future, at your health care provider or pharmacy, know that every bottle is filled with love and created out of love, the love for our children, all children, and all of you."
Losing a niece to suicide, Dr Cangas wanted to find a charity to support that helped those suffering from depression and to bring awareness to help prevent others from having to face it. He found just that in Chads Coalition.

Dr Cangas is a veteran of the United States Army and an advocate for services for veterans. His choice to provide funds for Songs4Soldiers was an easy one.
