Author: Candice Hayes

Candice Hayes is a resilient and inspiring entrepreneur, mental health advocate, and NFL wife of a retired player who turned her personal struggles into a powerful platform for change. Married for 28 years, Candice and her husband have three adult children, one son-in-law, and three grandchildren. Her life took an unexpected turn when her youngest son, Caleb, was diagnosed with a mental health condition seven years ago.
As a mother, Candice faced the challenges of navigating the mental healthcare system while trying to maintain a sense of normalcy for her family. She and her husband took on the role of full-time caregivers for Caleb, adapting their lives to meet his needs.

The experience was emotionally and physically taxing, but Candice remained determined to support her son.

Candice's entrepreneurial background includes a successful janitorial business, Candy's Corporate Cleaning, serving a diverse clientele. Her love for cleaning and organization even led her to write a handbook, "We Cleaned Our Home Yesterday," available on Amazon. Additionally, Candice founded Candy's Candles, a woman-owned business specializing in eco-friendly, vegan candles, wax melts, and room sprays that promote self-care and mental wellness.

Motivated by her personal journey, Candice created The Hope Journal and Hope Collection to provide resources and support for caregivers and individuals facing mental health challenges. She aims to break the stigma surrounding mental illness by sharing her story and empower others to seek help and practice self-care.

Candice's dedication to mental health advocacy extends beyond her businesses.
She serves on the executive board of the North Alabama Black Realist Association of Huntsville, Alabama (Nareb), is a member of The Off the
Field NFL Wives Association and is involved with the Huntsville Metro Black Chamber of Commerce.

Through her resilience, compassion, and commitment to making a difference, Candice Hayes has become a voice of hope for countless individuals and families affected by mental illness, reminding them that they are not alone in their struggles.
