Owner & Founder
In 2013 at the age of 26, I was celebrating the closing of my second house on a Friday, and by Monday I was diagnosed with Cancer. Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I had five tumors residing in my collarbone, lungs, and chest. I followed with the doctor’s recommendation which unfortunately was the dreaded toxic chemotherapy and radiation. The side effects alone from the chemo and radiation literally almost killed me. Due to my weakened immune system from the said treatments, I was forced to become jailed in my own house for fear of going out in public. (Even if I was fully gloved and masked, any germs could lead to a fever and the rapid onset of pneumonia, which my body was not strong enough to beat at the time, thus being fatal).
Unfortunately, I ended up in the hospital with a fever, my white blood count dropping dangerously low and at the most crucial point I was injected with a shot to help rapidly boost my immune system and raise my white blood count. After the test proved to be extremely effective, I came to find out that it was a synthetic pharmaceutical grade of mushrooms that I was given.
I was led down the path that started with educating, foraging, creating and eventually healing all tumors with mushrooms found naturally out in my own backyard, the breathtaking North Cascade Mountains. Remission was declared in 2014, and by 2015, Everyday Mushroom was fruited. Two years later, Everyday Natural Products followed to encompass all of my Mushroom and CBD products together as one.
This was a very pivotal point in my life. Not only was I starting to get better but I also gained confidence in that we have the power to heal ourselves. After experiencing the frustrations, pains and constant troubles associated with being sick, I was inspired to create a company that not only provided the relief of all of the lack of inconsistencies but was an affordable, natural alternative for everyone.
