Every business needs a spark, our daughter, Breann, was that spark for Willow Wicks.
HOW WE BEGAN - Breann Chavez was born in 2003. Though there were complications at birth, they were momentary, unexplainable and the only evidance of the complication was a functioning enlarged liver and spleen that doctors assumed Breann would simply grow into both organs. Breann did grow, hitting all milestone that first year.
Having always worked outside the home, staying home with Breann left an opportunity to explore new adventures from home. So, while my husband was off at work Breann spent her days learning to play, craw and chatter, while I learned to mix fragrances, set wicks and pour candles. Excited about the opportunity to create a new business that would allow me to stay home with Breann, I immediately jumped ahead and saw years of working and growing our candle business with Breann at my side and my little helper.
However, as many of our best laid plans, they aren't always the Lords. When Breann was 18 months she was diagnosis with Niemann-Pick Disease Type C, a rare fatal genetic disease, affecting only 500 in the world.
We lost Breann in 2006 at the age of 3, but she left a legacy with us that will not burn out. If not for Breann, we would not have started Willow Wicks. She was and is the spark that started Willow Wicks. Although, my dream did not come true of creating a business that I could share with our daughter, I can see now how the Lord also sparked this business because he knew how precious those years would be and how much I would come to cherish those special memories I made with Breann as we started this business. Willow Wicks was also were I poured my grief of losing Breann in a desire to honor her memory and keep that spark burning. I created the Turley Tot Collection in memory of Breann and all those special memories I was blessed to capture.
Our story of how we started also gives me a opportunity to raise awareness of Niemann-Pick Disease. $10 of every candle from the Turley Tot Collection will go to the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation in a fight to one day cure Niemann-Pick Disease. Please go to NNPDF.org to learn move about this disease and how you can help
Willow Wicks has also given me an opportunity to spot light and encourage young entrepreneur's that have blessed my life and continued to inspire me the way our Daughter Breann did. Look under the 'Special Guest' tab to view their creativity and support them.
