Here is where is all began! Meet the angel who is the driving force of Custom Crowns
I have always had a love for HAIR and helping people. When I was a teenager I braided hair (hair extensions) for extra money and continued when I began nursing school. After becoming a nurse I'd seen the effects of cancer and chemo treatments on people’s lives. I also noticed how hair loss effected these individuals after being diagnosed and receiving treatments were struck with yet another blow from this horrible disease. I then began to brainstorm about how to combine my two loves. I wanted to provide care that incorporated my love for hair with my knowledge as a nurse. I then heard of a program that Mary kay does called Pink changing lives one lipstick at a time during cancer awareness month and that sparked an idea. I could combine my love for medically caring for patient’s by providing information and helping them heal by making them feel good about what they see when they look in the mirror while going through the treatment. Keeping positive and dealing with psycho-social emotions are said to help one feel more upbeat and have a better quality of life and I wanted to be a part of that. I discussed this idea with one of my eight aunts and other family members often as well as did some research, but did not have all the proper resources to get it started. My aunt would often encourage me and share stories that she saw on television that were similar to my idea. A few years later after helping to plan, creating and bringing to life the wedding of my dreams she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and shortly after passed away. This was very heart-breaking to myself and my family. Many of us are still dealing with it today she was a beautiful soul. Because of all of the treatments she did lose her hair and in her passing she became my very first patient. The launching of Custom Crowns is in Honor of my aunt Myrtis Jane Allen. I FINALLY DID IT MYRTIS! She will always be remembered.
