Having endured this horrific hospital-acquired (HAI) infection, she became very keenly aware of the daily risks of re-infection just while doing her daily living. It is alarming folks just like you and me, who go into a hospital for care, walk out with an infection they got in the hospital. It became Marcia's mission to do everything she could to keep her loved ones safe and healthy.
Marcia became phobic about bacteria and how they could be prevented so no one had to suffer as she had. Marcia spent four years researching both Eastern and Western science to find ways to kill bacteria while she was consulting with a North Carolina chemical company.
Commercial America has a chemical solutions, Marcia's quest for a consumer, chemical-free, solution was still unanswered. She wanted something to keep everyday people clean from harmful bacteria: moms, flight attendants, laptop users, kids, nursing homes residents...and on and on. The bacteria that caused her nearly deadly staph are everywhere and chemicals and antibiotics only slow down their deadly actions. Marcia took a look back at ancient Egypt and other ancient civilizations and rediscovered the profound power of copper in killing bacteria.
In 2016, using the knowledge learned from the ancients, she began working to bring all natural, chemical free, practical, low cost consumer friendly antimicrobial copper products to market which will fight daily exposure to bacteria, microbes and lots of kooties which can actually cause death.
