We are helping millions of parents wake up to the risks of toxic chemicals all around them and now they’re sounding the alarm to wake up their friends, neighbors, and communities. Watch to learn how they’re sounding the alarm. What will you do?
In January 1991 Nancy and Jim Chuda establish the Colette Chuda Environmental Fund (CCEF) after their daughter, Colette, dies of a non-genetic cancer. CCEF begins funding new research to identify the causes of childhood cancers.
In January 1992 Childrens Health Environmental Coalition (now Healthy Child Healthy World) is created. Healthy Child’s mission is to inform parents about the preventable childhood health and developmental problems cause by exposures to toxic substances and to educate them on risk reduction in their homes, schools, and community.
Healthy Child Healthy World is a national non-profit inspiring a movement to protect our children from harmful chemicals. With a growing body of evidence linking everyday environmental contaminants to asthma, learning disabilities, obesity, cancer and more, Healthy Child translates the science and empowers parents and caregivers to create healthy environments where children and families can flourish.
