Francesco Clark, the founder of skincare line, Clark’s Botanicals, shares his inspiring story with The Wall Street Journal of how he began his successful $8 million company after suffering an injury that left his body mostly paralyzed:
“In 2002, he suffered a severe spinal-cord injury from a pool diving accident that left him without the ability to feel or move 98% of his body. As a result, Mr. Clark’s skin became unresponsive to temperature. He stopped sweating, and the condition of his skin deteriorated. After trying dozens of skincare products, both over-the-counter and prescription, Mr. Clark took matters into his own hands.”

The article also mentions that a percentage of the profits from Clark’s Botanicals is donated to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, which is devoted to curing spinal-cord injuries and improving the quality of life for people with paralysis.
It’s stories like these that should remind us to be grateful for everything in your life, and to remember that nothing is impossible!!
