Steve Milum - President

Steve had his stint in the corporate world as a Logistical Co-ordinator working for Ault Foods before it was purchased by Nestle Canada. However, he never felt quite right as a "company man", so he decided to step out of the corporate world into the independent and hectic world of a small business owner. After bladder surgery Steve began to realize that there was a gap in the marketplace for a specialized medical supply company so Chair Stuff Sales Ltd. was born in 2001. Since that time, Steve has developed a highly regarded reputation as a knowledgeable individual in the complex care needs of individuals needing medical supplies for their daily routines. Steve works closely with GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre and gives regular talks about bowel and bladder issues. Steve Milum has had a C6-7 spinal cord injury since 1987 after having a diving accident in Ontario. Steve did his rehab at Lyndhurst in Toronto before coming to Vancouver in 1991. Steve is also a fan of cycling. In his youth, Steve had such a passion for wheelchair racing that he helped form the association that developed the WC Race Series in 1995. Steve stayed on board until 2003, through its transfer into a non-profit in 2000. Now, as he is a bit older, Steve is at it again and is presently helping to develop the Handcycle Club BC. Steve has done a number of recreational handcycling trips to Europe and regularly goes on rides in the riding season in and around Vancouver. Steve is married to a loving wife and they have two children, one who is off to university in 2016. The family loves traveling as much as time and money will let them.
