Drawing by Chato Stewart
Kristin Selby Gonzalez received a grim fate on Oct. 15, 2004. She was told her son, Jaxson had Autism and that he would never look, talk, have any friends and would be in a group home by the time he was 8 years old. She didn’t accept that as the truth and has been fighting for her son ever since. Jaxson is now 11 years old and is talking, looking, learning to read and write and Kristin believes the sky is the limit. She will never give up on her son. Today, Kristin is the Chairman/President of the Autism Hope Alliance which is the first non-profit for Autism that sprung from the Natural Foods Industry (founded by Tom Bohager). Kristin has done hundreds of lectures all over the country sharing with parents what she has learned about diet, enzymes, biomedical treatments and therapies.

The goal is to bring hope to families facing the diagnoses of Autism through education, financial support and volunteerism.
