Helya for post "After my initial launch of SlickChicks I received an email from a woman who had limited mobility who wanted to buy a pair of slickchicks underwear in a size XLL.  At first, I was manufacturing limited sizes and told her that I didn't have them yet in size XLL but as soon as I did I would send her some. Her request made me realize that the innovative product I had created for women to have a convenient way to change their underwear, also had a use as adaptable clothing for people with disabilities. Unfortunately, by the time I manufactured and sent the XXL garment to this woman, she had succumbed to cancer. But her daughter wrote to me and told me the most inspiring story. She said her mother was so excited that my product was on its way to her that she worked harder in physical therapy to keep her mobility so that she would be able to change her own undergarments and regain that dignity.  While I am so sad that she never got that chance, the fact that slickchicks empowered her so much, erased any doubts I had about my product."  - Helya Mohammadian is the founder of SlickChicks.
