Autism affects 1 in 50 children. In December of 2001 my son Nicholas was diagnosed with Autism. It seemed like our lives had ended, and in a way they had. It felt as if nothing would ever again have meaning or purpose. Somehow I knew that on the dark journey before us we had the choice to either exist or thrive in such a horrifying situation.

We chose to thrive and I knew that I had to find help for my child immediately. I started countless hours of research which led us around the country in search of answers.

In 2002 I had the privilege to meet Doctor Kenneth Bock and hope was within reach. Dr. Bock put Nicholas on the path to recovery which included dietary modification, nutritional supplementation, and detoxification. My son was now on his path to healing.

Biomedical treatments have had a huge impact on our lives and have recovered so many others. Unfortunately some children are unable to receive these costly treatments. The 4-A Healing Foundation was established by Doctor Bock, in 2007.  The 4A Healing Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) public charity that assists families with financial needs who have children affected by Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies to find and pursue the appropriate biomedical treatment.

The most amazing individuals have been brought into our lives. Our paths would never have crossed, if not for autism. It has solidified my life’s motto that “Everything happens for a reason. Just believe.”
