Both dedicated eco-friendly, green, sustainable lifestyle advocates and activists, James and Nancy Chuda have worked tirelessly to advance children's environmental health education and affect change for a safer, toxic-free and healthy environment.
After losing their only child, Colette, at the age of five, to a rare non-genetic form of Wilm’s tumor, they founded Healthy Child Healthy World in 1991, one of the most respected national children’s charities whose purpose is to inspire parents to protect children against harmful chemicals. In Colette’s memory, they have mobilized parents and caregivers, environmental groups, the scientific community and media to work together to help make the necessary changes in national policies to protect our children. They currently serve as the Chairs on the Honorary Board of HCHW.
From their own perspective, the Chudas share their personal story and their inspiring endeavor to turn a personal tragedy into a successful and positive movement to protect children the world over: Watch the video here:www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vAVkv1LBx8
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
