The PureWow 2018 “Bounce Back” Honoree

In 2009, Los Angeles mom and former music producer Jo Ann Thrailkill lost her youngest son, Pablo, to a battle with cancer at the age of six. Determined to use the tragedy in order to help other families, she and her husband created The Pablove Foundation. Not only does their foundation invest in underfunded, cutting-edge pediatric cancer research, it also works to improve the lives of children who have been diagnosed with cancer through art programs, like Pablove Shutterbugs, which gives kids cameras and challenges them to rethink the world around them.

“When anybody of recognition recognizes Pablove, we feel like we’re doing our jobs.”
