Holly Wright wears many hats, and two of her more prominent and passionate roles involve her work as a Pediatric Occupational Therapist, as well as, her service as Vice-President, co-founder, and public spokesperson for the Payton Wright Foundation. She and her husband started the foundation in 2008 after losing their five year old daughter, Payton, to Medulloepithelioma, a rare form of brain cancer.
The foundation provides financial support to families who are caring for a child with brain cancer by directly paying their everyday expenses such as mortgage payments, utilities, etc., when they are unable to do so. Physicians and social workers can also refer families to the foundation who are in need of resources. To date, the Payton Wright Foundation has provided financial assistance to thousands of families throughout the United States since the Foundation’s inception.
Holly obtained her Bachelor of Science in Health Science and Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and currently resides in Bradenton, FL.
During her spare time, she likes to run, bake, go hiking and spend time with her family.

Determined to keep some level of stability, I dragged myself to a hot shower each morning, although walking around looking like Pig-Pen would have been fine by me. I clenched my jaw to keep the tears at bay while I put on my makeup, as I needed to hide the evidence of many, many sleepless nights. People were surprised I looked so well considering what we were going through. What a performance...
