As a husband and business owner, becoming a LOLA Advocate is very personal for Erik. Childbirth was a very harrowing experience for his wife, Mona, who has a autoimmune deficiency. While she was very near to death, Erik was in search of doctors, information about what to do with her diagnosis, and what to expect. He did not have LOLA to lean on. “If I had had LOLA, I could have spent that time next to my wife at her bedside, focusing on the important personal memories we wanted to share with each other and to pass on to our child.” Erik is a part of the LOLA team as Business Development Advocate.
