Against All Odds
Born and raised in New Orleans... I am a woman defying the odds. After a stroke at the age of 27, 3 heart attacks before the age of 35, diagnosed with a rare blood disorder in 2014 that I mistook for indigestion, but it was actually a blood clot the size of a lemon in my liver. I spent almost a month in ICU while doctors and specialists raced against the clock to figure out what was killing me me.
In 2016 I was diagnosed with a rare brain disease & Multiple Sclerosis, I was told that I would permanently be in my wheelchair by 2018 and that I only had about 5 1/2 years to live, and doctors said that time frame was stretching it.
In 2017 I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia, a nerve disorder in my face caused by a combination of having Multiple Sclerosis and my brain disease. For short it is called the Suicide Disease and is said to be the third most painful disease known to man. (It is truly the worst pain I have EVER experienced in my life. So bad that when it hits me, I wish death upon myself. But thankful that I am strong enough to endure.
Did I forget mention I also battle sever chronic pain EVERYDAY? It is difficult to stand or sit longer than 20 minutes at a time. But, despite all the challenges I face daily, I REFUSE to give up. Yes I am Chronically ill, but I make absolutely NO EXCUSES as to why I can't get up and give it my all everyday. Besides, with JEHOVAH as my strong hold, no matter how hard, I can and I will endure the challenges thrown my way.
I created Silk Sations with the intent to help save my life. I simply was not ready to die, and refused to lay around waiting for death, so I decided to jump into action. After a lot of praying, I applied my 17 years of knowledge as a cosmetologist and a lot of extensive research to create healthy products. Taking into considerations that everything we put on our hair and skin is absorbed into our blood stream, and being that I now am battling a deadly blood disorder, I have to be especially careful. After creating my handcrafted products, using all natural and organic ingredients for my personal use for almost a year... after seeing how amazing my products were and the benefits they were having on my hair, skin, and health, I could no longer keep these products to myself, so in 2018 I decided to share Silk Sations with the world, and I know my Silkies are very happy I did.
Shortly after I launched my products, Walmart and other big box stores came knocking. I became a WALMART online retailer. Less than a year ago I was set to stock Walmart store shelves, but that would mean I'd have to change my formulations (to meet their requirements) and sell what everyone else already has on store shelves (that usually DOESN'T WORK ) and I am just not willing to compromise the integrity of my products, (for NO dollar amount) so I decided to pass on the opportunity. For those on the outside looking in, they might feel I made a bad choice or that I could take the money from those sales and just start a new line, but I REFUSE to put out a products and sell to my SILKIES that I personally wouldn't use myself... So, despite being chronically ill and suffering with sever chronic pain daily, I will continue handcrafting EVERY batch of Silk Sations products, giving my SILKIES the BEST products on the market. PROVEN to work by THOUSANDS of SILKIES worldwide.
