For the last 14 years, Michael has been saving customers money on their products. He fought the manufacturer's, distributor's and sales people to keep the products affordable. When his health took a turn for the worse with multiple infections, hospitalizations, and surgeries, it became a challenge. He lost a little bit of fight each day. As things progressed, the harder it was for him to keep up...with everything in life. Some days I was worried he would literally just collapse. And some days, he did. It is heartbreaking to see Michael not be able to keep up with our youngest children after shipping and handling customer service over 12 hours per day, many times 7 days of the week. But, with help from family, he has kept it going for more than a year in this condition. As a small business owner, we were unable to find affordable health insurance. So, Michael went without treatment.
Michael created this store because he believed people deserved great products at an affordable price.. I know that Michael has shipped to over 60,000 people and still remembers so many of their names when they have inquiries. I find it amazing and I think this is a testament to how much he has put into Blush Beauty. It has been difficult watching his dreams collapse.
Lastly, I want to thank those of you that have remained loyal and supportive of us. I have been brought to tears reading the thoughtful words of encouragement some of you took the time to include with your orders. Those words mean the world when it seems like everything is falling apart. Thank you so much for your kindness and your patience.
