In November 2018, while on holiday in Spain, the plan was to work on my book (Your BodySong: 18 minutes to health, happiness and longevity), but I wasn't able to download it. Sometimes life has a funny way of taking us in new directions. Suddenly I had all this unplanned time on my hands, so I made a fairy house from re-purposed bottles and cardboard. While wondering what to do with it, I received the tragic news our neighbor's daughter, Addie, had died after a life-long battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Her death sparked a thought: "I want to share the wealth of scientific knowledge I've gained about health and happiness, to help others heal their lives. What If I were to write a story for children, encompassing some of what I’ve learned? What if I included a healing fairy house with my story? Yes, these little houses need to go to children with 'Big Diagnoses' to teach and empower them to signal their cells differently."
I'd been looking for a 'give back' project I felt passionate about… one that lit me up! This does. It makes my cells glow with happiness.
Before I knew it, this idea took on a life all its own; a project turning trash into treasured fairy houses. Houses which light up from the inside , with a story about how children can signal their cells positively. And Helper-Elves!
In February 2019, the first group of fairy house makers met in my garage and started building. The Helper-Elf tale "How to kickstart your inner Rainbow" was written giving children a powerful recipe for turning up their inner light and kick-start their magical healing powers. And ta-da! 'The Addie Project' was born. It all unfolded miraculously.
The first fairy builder crew
The fairy builder workshop
Addie was born on April 26th 1985 and diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 9-weeks old. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic lung disease affecting mostly the lungs, but also the pancreas, liver and kidneys. Cystic Fibrosis children have volume of doctor visits, hospitalizations, many awful procedures like blood draws, IV's and much more.
Addie’s positive attitude in the face of adversity, was inspirational. She loved purple and angel wings. She believed our mental attitudes impact our health. She lived the positive quotes she posted everywhere like,"Everyday has the possibility of a miracle," and "I live for the moments in life that take your breath away". She left to dance with the angels on November 26, 2018.
