Overcoming Personal Obstacles That Led To Owning Mix Me Apparel

Strength is in your ability to overcome obstacles that lead to your resilient future.  Megan Kirkwood is the definition of that.  At the age of 29 she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Megan survived chemotherapy, radiation and also a double mastectomy.  “Beating cancer truly gave me a new lease on life and a new outlook on my future. Chemotherapy led to total hair loss,” says the now cancer survivor.   “Having both breasts removed left me with multiple scars that caused insecurities. I eventually learned to overcome through loving myself and lots of self-care,” Megan continues.

Despite those odds, Megan also survived a divorce.  Many dream of finding their forever in their partners but for some, divorce is an option.  “No one gets married to get divorced. I was married for 5 years before I filed for divorce,” she explains.  “Finding who I was after my marriage was over became essential to living an optimal life for myself and my son,” she states.  In addition to surviving cancer and a divorce, she also embarked on the new journey of single parenthood.  In an effort to continue pushing forward Megan turned her interests and past insecurities into her own boutique apparel line.

So in September 2020 she took a leap of faith into the land of entrepreneurship.  Today, Mix Me Apparel is standing strong as a womenswear brand for modern, on trend and exclusive clothing items.  “I have always had an eye for trendy women’s fashion; and I love to see women looking and feeling their best,” Megan exclaims.  Megan Kirkwood has truly turned her past obstacles into a love for herself, fashion and her family.  Turbulence is only temporary and Megan is in for the long haul.  Her love for fashion and her kind nature make her a Pretty Woman who will always Hustle.  Regardless of your hustle, be fashionable in Mix Me Apparel.  Shop for new items here.
