As many of my clients are aware, I returned to college a few years ago to acquire my bachelors in nursing. I have found myself in many forms of continuing education my entire adult life and I was eventually lead to nursing school to better understand the medical side of skin care and permanent cosmetics. Little did I know how important the knowledge of nursing school would help navigate my family’s needs.
When my 15-year-old daughter was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and a major infection (flesh-eating bacteria) after her first round of chemotherapy, I knew why I was in nursing school. I was there to better understand everything about the human body. It sure helped me navigate the world of childhood cancer, bone marrow transplants, and wound care due to necrotizing fasciitis (flesh eating bacteria).
When youngest daughter was diagnosed with cancer, I took a year off nursing school so I could care for her. We finally began to find a new normal after her skin graft in May 2014. I re-enrolled in The University of Tulsa’s nursing school program to finish my final year of my degree.
I am happy to report, I will be finishing my bachelor’s in nursing in May 2015. Most importantly, my youngest daughter is in remission and doing phenomenal in her junior year of high school.
My oldest daughter, my youngest daughter, and I missed Thanksgiving holiday 2013, while we were cooped up in a bone marrow transplant unit in Texas, so we have big plans to celebrate this year. We have a new normal. We have so much to be thankful for!
As far as this business, it has grown exponentially over the last 9 years and I am so thankful for each and every one of you. I know each of my clients recognize and appreciate the value of quality work. They each know I will never reduce my services to the quickest online coupon service or daily deal. Permanent makeup is better than your highest quality handbag and quality work is worth every penny. Why would you shop for discounts for permanent face alterations? My work is important to me and I will always honor my brand!
As a client of Permanent Makeup by Shanan, you will always be proud of your permanent cosmetics and you will never require corrective procedures. xoxo
