Kate Laver Foundation


Michelle and Richard Laver have been blessed with four beautiful children including Kate age 10, who was born with Cerebral Palsy, a motor disability condition affecting the brain. Kate had a seizure upon birth that permanently affected her body movement and muscle coordination. At age four, doctors said Kate was failing to thrive. Faced with feeding tubes, hospitals, and numerous pharmaceutical drugs, Kate's parents searched for a better nutritional formula because her sensitive system resulted in many complications including bottle rot, sleep apnea, and severe digestive problems. Her illness escalated into 10 hospital visits a year and many sleepless nights for the couple. Armed with a passion for helping their daughter live life to the fullest, the Lavers partnered with a vegan chef to create a new meal replacement shake. They researched all the possible superfoods and after their 80th batch, they created the world's first dairy-free, gluten-free, and soy-free ready-to-drink meal replacement shake. Within weeks of drinking what is now known as Kate Farms Komplete, Kate's condition improved significantly. She no longer needed breathing treatments for sleep apnea, her digestion problems were a thing of the past, and her mouth was once again healthy. Their formula worked. Kate has not been to the hospital since! Now with the Kate Farms product in over 7,000 stores across America, the Lavers have turned their focus to helping many Cerebral Palsy and special needs children in the Coachella Valley through the Kate Laver Foundation, a 501-(c)(3) non-profit organization.
