HER PASSION: GENERATION RESCUE
"When my son, Evan, was diagnosed with autism in 2005, I found Generation Rescue
, where parents teach other parents about effective biomedical treatmentsdiet, vitamins, detox, cleansing. Evan is now 6, and I consider him recovered. When he improved, I started writing (Louder Than Words
and Mother Warriors
) to show the world how I did it, my way of paying it forward. Every day the organization is out there raising awareness, teaching parents, and building an online resource for pediatricians who are looking for alternative treatments for autism. Sometimes I'm on the phone all day, coaching a new mom or figuring out a campaign. It is just what I'm supposed to do."
