Founder & CEO Story

Click here to read more of my story: 

I started playing softball at the age of 4, which then at the age of 8 turned into competitive travel ball. No weekdays or weekends free from the age of 8-17. 

 

At age 17 is when my health took an unexpected turn for the worse, I was playing in a high school softball game and went for a play and blacked out on the field. My black out led to multiple MRIs, CAT Scans and many neurosurgeon appointments…

 

Two months later I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation a Serious Neurological Disorder in which the brain tissue extends into the spinal canal, present at birth. I was born with this condition but the symptoms that causes excruciating pain did not appear until my black out on the field.

 

I had the decompression (Brain Surgery) three months after being diagnosed. The reason my surgery was needed is because of the symptoms and the CSF flow.

 

Chiari Decompression: A posterior fossa decompression is a surgical procedure performed to remove the bone at the back of the skull and spine. The dura overlying the tonsils is opened and a patch is sewn to expand the space. The goals of surgery are to stop or control the progression of symptoms caused by tonsillar herniation, to relieve compression of the brainstem and spinal cord, and to restore the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).

During these years, I saw my family struggle to manage all of my records, I myself was struggling with keeping track of everything from my appointment before and during my visits to how I felt on a daily basis. 

I do not want to feel like a statistic. I want to make a difference and help people who are suffering like I am.

Two years after my surgery, I am still searching for relief. I still cannot play softball till this day because of the on going symptoms.

So, I decided to come up with a solution to making health management easy. I am so happy to have this all in one product that I use on a daily basis to make my life easier.
