Sunday, June 6 is National Cancer Survivors Day and I want to send some love to all cancer survivors and specifically to my sister and Coils to Locs cofounder Dianne Shaddock Austin.
Why Coils to Locs Exists
Interesting fact, Coils To Locs would not exist if Dianne hadn’t been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, lost all of her hair due to chemotherapy and subsequently not be able to find a coily, curly wig in the cancer care hospital space that resembled the highly textured natural hair that she lost.
I absolutely wish she didn’t have to have the experience of dealing with the big C but God had other plans. Thank you sis for your vision. For turning your lemons into lemonade. For choosing me to go on this amazing entrepreneurial ride with you to make a social impact and disrupt this healthcare disparity! ✨ You hit your 5 years in remission mark this past March and I and everyone who knows and loves you is so grateful. Keep shining your light and being the positive, passionate and loving person that you are.
Your loving sister and partner in #goodtrouble,
