In December of 2007, Michael and I lost a sweet friend and her infant son to postpartum depression. We knew Jenny through her husband, Chip, who at the time was an ortho resident with Michael at UAB.
Jenny's Light mission is to improve and save lives by increasing awareness of all perinatal mood disorders including postpartum depression.
You can read more about Jenny's story here.
If you are in the Birmingham area and want to help with the golf tournament that is on June 19th- please let me know. We love volunteers. We are in the process of making a blog with more info--- I hope to have it updated by this weekend. If you aren't in the Birmingham area- all I ask is that you:
You don't have to make a monetary donation (although it's always welcome).... but it would be great if you would get the word out about postpartum depression. Let people know about Jenny's Light and let those who are suffering from postpartum know that they are people out there that are willing to help.
Here are a couple of photos from last year's tournament here in Birmingham.
