Michelle Nichols lost her son, Mark, to brain cancer when he was just 8 years old. Since Mark’s sudden death, Michelle has been on a campaign to challenge ideas around work/life balance and encourage parents to take time for their children. 

According to Michelle’s book “Hug Your Kids Today! 5 Key Lessons for Every Working Parent” she recommends “family first and work a close second.”

Michelle pioneered Hug Your Kid Day, which happens on the third Monday in July each year, in 2008, ten years after Mark’s death. 

A recent study already revealed that hugging helps with your kid’s brain development.
