Scott and Marlene have been married for 22 years and they have three children ages 11, 13, and 15. When their kids got lice in 2015 for the first time, they did the same thing that almost every other parent does. Marlene sent Scott to the local CVS store to buy over-the-counter products that were high in chemical content and tried to comb it out herself. A few weeks and several hundred dollars later the kids still had lice and Marlene now had lice as well. They missed many days of school, work, and had lots of crying and sleepless nights. With her medical background, Marlene wanted to find a chemical free, medical based way to treat her kids lice infestation which led her to the AirAlle medical device and Larada Sciences based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. At the time, the closest clinic that had this device was about 90 miles away.
