Three Ships Making Wishes Come True

Why This Matters To Us

On November 7th, 2019, at the age of 26, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

I underwent a 10-hour brain surgery to remove ~70% of my tumour. I woke up, realized that I had made it through and started crying silent tears, just so relieved to be awake.

While my recovery has been remarkably smooth, there are parts of me that will never be the same. I struggle to find meaning in the minutia of life and fear for what might happen down the road with the remaining tumour. But I also have a much deeper appreciation for our bodies + what they can do, the amazing people in my life, each day and each moment.

I share my journey as a story of hope for other young adults or parents of children who are going through a difficult health diagnosis. Most days will be hard but don’t give up on your dreams. Keep pushing for the future that you always dreamed of.

My perspective as a person, business founder, and friend has changed and so has the story of Three Ships Beauty. Connie and I now have a greater sense of purpose for what we want the business to represent, and the impact that we want to have.

Keeping your spirits high and your dreams strong is so important in a path to recovery. We are so excited that Three Ships will now serve as a vessel to generate memories and bring happiness to those affected by this terrible illness.
