Visiting the orphanage where I suffered abuse and malnutrition every day for 8 years and reliving the horror
SURVIVING THE NAZIS
I created Passion 4 Life for ME! At age 2 I was placed in a state-run orphanage after the Nazis dragged my family away in front of me. Suffering malnutrition and horrific abuse daily, I ran away from the orphanage at age 10 and lived on the streets of Amsterdam on my own trying to survive.
COMING TO AMERICA
The anguish of a malnourished mind and body took its toll so when I came to America as a young man, I was in bad shape, even suicidal. I took handfuls of vitamin pills that didn’t help me That led me on a lifelong journey of studying everything I could find on nutrition, and ultimately I discovered that a liquid vitamin would increase absorption dramatically resulting in greater results. Since I couldn’t find one, I decided to create it, and Passion 4 Life was born. My wife named it after the way I live my life.
Always studying to improve
Linda and I work hands-on daily with the children we are blessed to serve
MY LEGACY – A “VITAMIN WITH A MISSION”
After Passion 4 Life worked so well for me, I decided to share it with the world. It has been my life’s mission to turn my tragic beginning in life into a story of reinvention and hope by combining the 2 things I lacked in life – good nutrition and someone to care as a portion of the vitamin profits helps fund our children’s charity, Passion 4 K.I.D.S. We are a “Vitamin with a Mission” – when you do something good for your own health, you also help a child in need.
My desire is to leave a legacy of hope that no matter how you start in life, you can turn it around and make a positive difference for the world. So take your “Passion” and make it happen.
