Who is Malachi?

The non-profit is named after one of the founder’s sons who passed from a terminal birth defect due to his mother’s toxic mold exposure. The biblical meaning of the name Malachi is, “our angel and our messenger”.

We chose the name Malachi to honor him as well as we saw it fitting; because we hope this foundation can be the angel of assistance for the people our foundation serves as well as a message of hope that they are not alone and that they will recover, while also spreading awareness on how mold can devastate a person’s health and wealth.

A Note From Malachi's Mom

“Malachi means the world to me and Josh. He was our son that died from a terminal birth defect that he developed due to my toxic mold exposure. He died and was delivered at 35 weeks on December 19th, 2016. 
Malachi inspired me and his dad to get into the mold industry in order to spread awareness and help others the way that we wished someone would have helped us during our mold nightmare. We did just that, through the company that we built called Texas Mold Inspectors.  
The name Malachi means “Our Angel” or “Our Messenger” in the Bible. We originally chose Malachi for his name because we felt he was an angel that God was sending to us during our darkest time as we tried to figure out how to recover from our mold nightmare. We also felt that he was a message from God that, “Everything would be okay.” We didn’t know that he was terminal when we chose his name on August 8th, 2016.
Our OBGYN, in September and at almost 23 weeks pregnant gave us the devastating news that Malachi had developed Anencephaly. I was exposed to many toxic molds in our townhome before learning that I was pregnant with Malachi. I was told by our environmental doctor that there was one mold in specific that has been linked to Anencephaly after he heard the news. 
 “In 1990–1991, an outbreak of neural tube defects (NTDs) occurred in Cameron County, Texas wherein six anencephalic births occurred in 6 weeks at one hospital.” This outbreak was found to be linked to a mold specie called Fusarium moniliforme.”
My blood work, which was drawn while pregnant with Malachi, also showed Positve for very high levels of Fusarium moniliforme amongst other toxic molds that we were exposed to in our toxic townhome. 
Anencephaly is known to be caused by a lack of folate. I actually had my blood drawn 6 months prior to becoming pregnant with Malachi by another doctor that had tested my blood for vitamin deficiencies to see if that is why I was having all of these unexplained symptoms that were unknowingly being caused by mold exposure in our townhome. My folate levels, per this lab work, were high and no where near deficient. Why then did Malachi develop Anencephaly? I did more research and discovered that the reason “Fusarium moniliforme” can increase the chances of a developing fetus to have a neural tube defect, such as Anencephaly, is because it causes the cells to not absorb the folate needed to prevent Anencephaly. My blood test only showed what was in my blood, not my cells. 
Because of Malachi, Josh and I got into the mold industry.  We promised him that we would do everything we could to prevent this from happening to another child. He gave us our new purpose in life. He reminds us everyday to be grateful for what we have. We have met many amazing people along our journey and one of them being Elizabeth Cripe, the other cofounder and Executive director of Malachi’s Message.  Elizabeth and her husband hired Texas Mold Inspectors to help them find the mold in their apartment. When Elizabeth and I met, it was like we had known each other for years. We both wanted to do more for those going through mold and we knew we could. 
The number one hurdle keeping people from being able to recover from mold is the lack of finances. Because Home insurance and medical insurance does not cover mold remediation, assessments, temporary housing, replacement costs for contaminated items and contents and it does not cover the costs to see the doctors that can properly test and treat a person made ill by their water damage home or building. Everything is generally out of pocket and costs thousands of dollars. 
Elizabeth and I spear headed the mission, with the help of a few others along the way, in deciding to do something about the above hurdle. We built Malachi’s Message foundation and named it in honor of him. It’s the very first non profit foundation set up to financially assist those going through mold in order to help others recover sooner than later. Elizabeth and I also found it fitting to name the foundation after Malachi because of what his name means, as we Hope his foundation serves as an angel of financial assistance to those it serves and that it also brings a message of Hope to those going through mold, ‘that they can get better and that they are not alone.’
Thank you to everyone that has supported Malachi’s Message by sharing the foundation, donating to it, volunteering for the events we held and also by cheering us on and encouraging us to continue.”
