After her 4 year-old son was diagnosed with brain cancer, Audra DiPadova Wilford founded the MaxLove Project to help children and their families thrive in the face of life-threatening conditions through whole body wellness resources, education and research. She’s worked tirelessly for her cause for the past few years and now she’s been recognized as a Woman of Worth by L’Oreal Paris and has a chance to win $25,000 to support her work. We’ve been longtime supporters of MaxLove and think the world of Audra, so we’re asking everyone we know to PLEASE take a minute to vote for her.
VOTE HERE (You can vote once daily through November 21st). Here’s more about Audra:
One of the first things Audra did after launching the MaxLove Project was partner with Cloud b to empower children fighting cancer with “Twilight Turtle,” a nightlight that helps soothe children when they’re in hospitals and other strange places. Today, many doctors prescribe the lights, which make them eligible to be covered by health insurance. She has also worked with dieticians to create personalized, cancer-fighting meal plans. MaxLove’s “Fierce Food Kids” helps build awareness around the connections between diet and overall wellness.
Audra also volunteers regularly for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a MaxLove Project partner, since 2012. Through the organization she has shaved her head three times, bringing people together to raise more than $90,000 for pediatric cancer research.
“I am a passionate advocate for pediatric integrative medicine,” says Audra. “I believe that all kids deserve every opportunity, every tool, to thrive in critical care situations and beyond.”
