Introducing Femly Box and the Founder, Arion Long
Femly Box is an organic feminine products company based in Washington DC and founded by Arion Long, also the CEO. Long started Femly soon after she experienced a series of medical related issues. She was first diagnosed with a cervical tumor which would end up being linked to the chemicals found in the popular period products she used at the time. Unfortunately, she later lost her daughter, Sage, in a stillbirth delivery.
Further complications followed which saw her placed on life support. As a testament to overcoming these medical related setbacks, while still recovering after discharge from the hospital, Long miraculously managed to raise $10,000 for her company. Furthermore, she went on to win funding in 6 figures in the weeks that followed. On November 8th 2018, she was crowned the winner of the MasterCard Grow Your Biz Contest in association with Bank of America, at the Final Event in New York City.
