NEW Collection Launch: Beautiful Disaster + Artists For Trauma



I read the full disclaimer for getting on the helicopter the first time I've ever read a full disclaimer and it said we're held harmless an event of injury or death read it all signed it and got on and I just had this feeling I had a feeling that wasn't right and then right as we were about to get over the beach we heard this loud pop we looked outside and you could just see all the flames and smoke coming from the engine we all cost pans in the back and just looked at each other I said God to hear well knowing that I was either gonna wake up press came in heaven and I was alright with either one this truck driver on the other side of the freeway was switching lanes and he hit a Ford f-150 and flew over the freeway and landed on me head-on I died it protect you in my throat is like a breathe the doctor is trying to tell my family and I pull the plug yeah he said that if I did I'd be a vegetable I think I want cute carrot huh I was 33 weeks pregnant at 40 years old first child's emergency c-section and I wouldn't stop bleeding I wasn't clotting so they ended up having to cut me open and take out a foot of my colon due to a blockage that was about the size of a softball a week after my son was born they did a surgery similar to that on him but he unfortunately was not strong enough to survive we had FaceTime which was nice so I was able to at least see him and hear him cry and things like that but I wish I at least had been able to hold my son because I was never able to hold him while he was alive so that's that's a part that kind of that haunts me I guess a pedestrian ran into the freeway and hit me he was projected towards a big break so he didn't make it I flew off my bike at 65 miles an hour even though I flew off my bike no other car ran me over the tragic thing is that even though I only broke my finger there's no bone from here to here it's gonna be removed I have an autoimmune disease it's called vitiligo most people know it from what Michael Jackson had I was really uncomfortable when I first got it it was kind of made me self-conscious and tried to hide it and one day I just decided it's part of me there's no point in being upset about it and now I call him my leopard spots 14 years ago after I had my daughter I had my first colonoscopy and I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis the only thing that can cure it is to take out your corn I either die take my own life or have surgery and remove my colon I owe my life to my husband if he wasn't as persistent I wouldn't be here today it's been a thirty-year process I'm 39 years old so started when I was nine and they found a small tumor in my jaw you just decided to scrape the bone but it activated something within the tumor that caused it to grow back twice as big and twice as fast and in the process of being in that surgery they determined that it was the entire right side of my mandible so in the middle of the surgery they flew in a cadaver hip bone took out half of my right side and nine of my teeth we launched our campaign today yes we did through the messaging and the branding of our clothing we want to help people feel better about themselves proud of what they've been through and if they don't have their own voice and they're not ready to share their story they can find a little bit of confidence and strength hanging in their closet ever since I met Kristina and heard about a beautiful disaster I wanted to work with her because she's perfectly aligned with artists for Ana's mission I wanted to be able to give people an experience where they could find beauty in what they might not always find beauty in my husband once told me he's just a beautiful disaster literally if I could have it across my forehead it would be what I am you don't know how beautiful you are until someone shows you how beautiful you are and that's what beautiful disaster has done to me beautiful disaster make me feel like a beautiful disaster and it makes me feel good we always feel guilty for going through hard times we shouldn't we should not feel guilty it's just life it's being imperfect and that's the perfect thing about life trauma specifically is it's an event if you surrender to it and let it be heard of you and wear it with pride then you'll wear it perfectly that's what we did today we gave people power you
