Community Health Fair by the Methodist Sickle Cell Center

Sickle Cell Disease has been lost in the shuffle of illnesses people in our community battle for many years now. Many of you who are now reading this article are wondering what Sickle Cell Disease is. Which adds to the point. So what is Sickle Cell?

Sickle Cell Disease is a blood disorder that causes one’s red blood cells to become dehydrated and sickle-shaped. Which is nowhere near normal and causes a lot of complications. This is a genetic illness, which means that the only way to have Sickle Cell is to be born with is. Which is why education on Sickle Cell is so important! Methodist has done so much to help teach those affected by Sickle Cell about the disease. Doing so with the goal of breaking the sickle cycle. Knowing about Sickle Cell helps people avoid making decisions that will cause more kids to be born with the disease.

Sickle Cell causes many complications n someone’s life. Being that their red blood cells are abnormal, it is hard for those cells to flow through a person’s blood veins. Which causes A LOT of pain when what is called a “Sickle Cell Crisis” flares. This is the main problem someone living with this disease face, but there a many more. To list a few, many deals with bone deterioration, organ failure, blindness, depression, and anxiety, etc.

The Health Fair is aimed at bringing awareness to our community about Sickle Cell Disease and the importance of knowing your sickle status, as well as offering free health screenings, and education on living an all-around healthy life.  This event will occur inside Wilson Hall Gymnasium, located on the campus of Methodist University Hospital at 251 S. Claybrook (corner of Linden and S. Claybrook).
There will be face painting, line dancing, giveaways, food and much, much more.  Bring the whole family out to this event!

Let’s come out and get educated! Thus helping our community #BeAmazing! See you all there!

I mean really, hire someone to cut it already. Make sure they trim the edges, and for god's sake clean your flower beds. I am sorry there's more. You could live with a little fertilizer. Not done! So gutters around your house could use some attention too!

Community Baby Shower – JUICE Orange Mound

Community Baby Shower – JUICE Orange Mound

Community baby shower

This article is being brought to you by Fresh Start Facility Services Click to learn more!

You are young, pregnant, and live in Orange Mound.  

The life growing inside of you eats what you eat, goes where you go, and lives the way you live.  You wonder how your baby will be affected by the income per capita being less than $17,347?  How will you beat the 64% chance that your child will not make over $29,900 as an adult?  How living in a food desert will pose a challenge for the life of your beloved bundle of joy?

“I will do the best I can,” you say.  Despite the generational poverty, I shall overcome.  Beyond the food access crisis, I shall endure.  Withstanding transportation challenges, I will find a way. 

Truth be told, your due date feels more like dooms day.  How you are to protect and provide for the life in side of you is beyond you.  You mean well but deep inside you question if your best will be good enough.  You need help but do not know where to begin.

Somewhere in the community, a non-profit leader desires to host a community baby shower.  She reaches out to friend Carey Moore at The House, a women’s resource center located at Semmes and Carnes—she loves the idea and would love to serve as the venue for the event.

She reaches out to other personal contacts and starts to mobilize a team of service providers for pregnant mothers.  She learns about a midwife/nurse practitioner Nikia Grayson on Facebook and reaches out—she would love to participate!  

She even learns that there is already an annual baby shower hosted by the Orange Mound Civic Club and reaches out with the organizers to collaborate.  Fortunately, they are looking to expand the event and love the idea of hosting the community baby shower in August.  Things are shaping up nicely. 

But, you have not met the non-profit leader.  You have no idea that the help you desire is planning for the future of you and your baby.  You have no idea that your community is ready to wrap around you to ensure your success as a mother raising a child in Orange Mound.

You are cordially invited to attend the Community Baby Shower hosted by JUICE Orange Mound this August 2018.  A partnership with a host of community-based organizations including BSTARS, Project Fresh, the Urban Garden and Wellness Center, and The House, this event is for all pregnant and new mothers in the Orange Mound area.  Each mother will be connected to a mentor mother as well as service providers who are prepared to assist in making this transition into motherhood smooth.

Please help us reach the future mothers of The Mound by calling 901-300-6621, emailing jommemphis@gmail.com, or leaving a message in the JUICE Orange Mound inbox on Facebook.  We need YOUR help to ensure the success of this event, thank you!

#Why not start fresh today?

Our management team includes an amazing group of leaders with experience and dedication, trained to get you a maximum ROI while raising the bar in Quality Control.
