Special Guest: Carly Harrill of Healthy Child Healthy World
Healthy Child Healthy World was founded in 1992 by James and Nancy Chuda. Their daughter, Colette, was diagnosed at 4 years old with a non-hereditary cancer known as Wilm’s Tumor. As mothers, we can all imagine the unspeakable pain that these parents felt when Colette was diagnosed with cancer, but it is unfathomable to imagine how they felt after they spoke with an expert on Wilm’s Tumor and learned that it was possible that Nancy had ingested or been exposed to some toxin during her pregnancy with Colette that triggered the mechanism that resulted in the cancer that took her from her parents at such a young age (their fears were later confirmed in 1995 when a study relating parental pesticide exposure to the risk of Wilm’s Tumor was published in the American Journal of Epidemiology). After Colette’s death, with the support and encouragement of their family and friends, they began to turn their tragedy into an amazing movement that has inspired and educated parents everywhere to raise healthy children by eliminating toxins from their environments. Healthy Child Healthy World works to educate parents and caregivers on how to protect children from harmful chemicals.
Join us here on this post LIVE on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 7pm PST/10pm EST, when Carly Harrill of Healthy Child Healthy World will teach us about how we can raise healthy children by protecting them from harmful chemicals, how to remove harmful chemicals from their environment, and what substitutions we can make in their environment. We will be discussing the show and the information we learn on our weekly Twitter chat on the #Mamavation hashtag, so make sure you join the conversation as well! As part of our healthy detox and weight loss bootcamp, Carly is also our expert in a private coaching call for our three Mamavation Moms. Watch for their posts this week as they share what they learned and their reactions to the information they’re learning from our experts! You can reach out and connect with Carly and Healthy Child Healthy World on Carly’s Twitter account, the Healthy Child Healthy World Facebook page, and the Healthy Child Healthy World Pinterest boards.

Mamavation Blogging Carnival
Each week, we hold a blogging carnival on our Mamavation forum where we invite our community members to add links to their health related posts that they’d like to have others read.

If you add your post to the carnival, we do ask that you visit at least 5 other posts within the week, but the more you visit, the more chances you have to win the giveaway! Here’s the link for this week’s blogging carnival.
