Believing in Me
Submitted by Kimberly Morlen

Yes, I know it would be an obvious choice for many to pick their spouse, but there is a reason my husband is the one. Four years ago, my husband was diagnosed with cancer. The diagnosis came about two weeks before our wedding day. I know he was scared as anyone would be, but he handled everything like a true hero. We went to see the doctor, thinking he was going to schedule a date for the surgery, but instead he told us my husband had to loose a significant amount of weight before the surgery. He worked hard for a year to lose the weight, continually saying he was fighting so hard because he refused to die just yet. The operation went well and he is fine. As we went through this journey of healthy lifestyle changes together, I began to notice ingredients on labels in products we used everyday in our home and on our body. As we searched for better options it became clear there wasn't many, so I began to make my own. This was intended just for us, but it somehow turned into a skincare business that has gone beyond what I would have expected. My husband has believed in my passion to change the industry. He believes in my products and encourages me everyday! He has seen me fail and seen me have small success along the way, but no matter what he has never stopped supporting my effort and offering encouraging words to keep me going. This is why he is my one. This is why I will succeed. This is why I will continue to educate. This is why I give back to cancer research. Believing in someone and showing loving support can change the world!
