About Me

Due to childhood illness, Laura Hudson has been completely bald since she was nine years old. Laura's hair loss is due to Alopecia Universalis, an auto-immune disorder for which there is no cure.

Laura says, "I would have given anything to have someone tell me they understood what I was going through, that it was OK to be different, that if I just hung in there and was strong I would be victorious. It would have made all the difference in the world. I could have been spared so many doubts, questions and fears. Since I didn't have that person, I want to be that person."

Laura Hudson is a motivational speaker and the Marketing Director for Aviv Moon Productions.

Fell off the bandwagon and hit by a truck!

Lesson learned!!!

I fell off the whole foods, plant based diet bandwagon and paid a great price for it. We had a crazy busy weekend and although I didn't spend it eating tons of animal flesh, I did eat some really unhealthy stuff. Then my daughter had to be taken to the hospital for a fever and it just went downhill from there.

There's a saying that goes, "I feel like I've been hit by a truck." WELL, when I fell off the bandwagon - I was hit by a truck! I am so sick now! I've got this unrelenting cold that is turning into bronchitis that is keeping me up all night coughing and gasping for air. Miserable I tell you!

So, it's back on the Raw Vegan bandwagon for me. I don't like this feeling at all and I am not willing to feel this bad anymore!

  1. Probiotics - check!
  2. BarleyMax - check!
  3. Processed sugary foods

Keep checking back, I've tried a new hair care product that I love! I'll be sure to post a review one day this week.

THIS is how you end hunger in America!

My 6 year old's teacher called us last night to do an overview of where she is in the learning process. She's a very considerate teacher, does this a lot - love her for it! Anyway!

She then tells my husband that there is a girl in class that never brings snack. Here's the thing - these kids do not eat lunch until almost 1pm and so they have snack in the morning so they are not starving. It is required that you pack it and understood that if you do not pack it, your child will not have a snack as the school does not provide it. So this child sits and drinks water from the water fountain while all of the other kids eat their snack.

Ms. Teacher told my husband that our daughter gets up everyday and gives the little girl half of her snack. Then she told us that our daughter had asked permission to start bringing two snacks to school every day so that she can share with the child.

Today, I packed two juices and two sandwiches. My daughter said, "make sure you packed her a juice so that she doesn't have to drink that fountain water any more."

How do you change the world? How do we put an end to hunger? How do we reach those that are hurting?

Simple, be like a 6 year old and care about someone other than yourself.
