Mary Cavanaugh’s daughter has autism. As a result Mary has become a researcher and expert on the subject. She began her journey to help her child get better in the fall of 2007 when she was diagnosed with PDD-NOS. Using her compiled research Ms. Cavanaugh was able to win her second appeal to have her daughter see an out-of-network physician who specializes in treating her condition. Her search for wholeness led her to working as an entrepreneur for the Max International Company. Their products have been transformational in the recovery of her daughter and her own health issues that were a result of the stress autism brings to the family. Mary is active on the “Boston Mitochondrial Autism Task Force.” Her passion is to eradicate autism, (this man-made condition) by helping these children recover through detoxification and being able to make more neurotransmitters. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from the University of Alabama.
