I got to know partner in crime and fellow sufferer Karine in 2017, early October, through my son. She was looking for a designer to draw and develop her new unique collection for edema patients.
We both fought breast cancer, but we didn't let the disease and the consequences of the treatment stop us. We both wanted to be an example to others . Your life does not end after cancer. And the trick is to turn that experience into something positive.
So we are one started working together with respect for each other's label. It turned out to be a golden match, we are very complementary. I have knowledge of design and product , the artistic side so to speak. And Karine does the business side of both labels. Her story and collection of fashionable clothing for people with lymphedema can be found at www.neliane.com
