My name is Taylor and I founded Be Brave Box! This is my first business. I’m 16 years old and my dad has been helping me start up Be Brave Box.
I have Chronic Kidney Disease. I was diagnosed in November 2011 the kind I have is rare and genetic. I go to The Alberta Children’s Hospital. I just got a kidney transplant on August 11th, 2015 from my dad. When you get a kidney transplant you can’t go into busy places for six weeks because you are immune suppressed.
I have wanted to start a business for a couple years now but was too sick to start one. Since I was stuck in the house for 6 weeks and love subscription boxes I decided to start Be Brave Box.
I know how hard it is to be stuck in a hospital for days or even weeks or to have to go to a hospital for appointments daily. I also know how much waiting is involved when it comes to hospitals. I wanted this box to become a way for us all to meet others that understand living with a health condition.
There are always going to be good days and bad. I want Be Brave Box to be another good part of life because we just need more good in our lives.
