Why momsAWARE?

Our Beginnings

momsAWARE is the result of one mother's desperation. As Andrea Fabry watched her nine children struggle with unexplainable illnesses—from migraines to vertigo, abdominal pain to mood disorders—she couldn't find answersFabry Family, October 2011 or medical help.

In the spring of 2008, Andrea began to wonder if her home's recent mold remediation could be a part of the problem. After extensive research, the pieces of the puzzle finally came together. In the fall of 2008, a toxicologist and mold specialist advised the Fabrys to vacate their home, which they did, leaving all their possessions behind. (Read more of their story.)

Because of this journey, Andrea understands the power of knowledge and the value of a mother's instinct. She is passionate about raising health awareness and empowering moms and others to live healthy in a toxic world.
