Dear Family & Friends,
I am embarking on a new adventure that I am thrilled to share with you.
For those who may not already know, I am a Physician Assistant practicing my life's work in an extraordinary non-profit clinic, La Clinica Vallejo Great Beginnings. Since 2006, it has been the only medical facility in the Vallejo area providing comprehensive perinatal services to low-income, underserved women. The goal of our program is to promote healthy birth outcomes for mothers in Solano County by providing enhanced support services including nutrition, health education, psychosocial assessments, and behavioral health screenings, in addition to prenatal and postpartum medical care. Collectively, we have helped over 12,600 expectant families bring their babies into the world. Our main focus continues to aim at maximizing the well-being of both mother and baby.
With that said, it has become a personal goal of mine to fund raise money in order to implement additional support services, specifically parenting workshops and postpartum support groups for mothers motivated by pregnancy and parenthood. We all know about the joys and anxieties of parenting and I would like to create a sanctuary where parents can get together to empower each other through education and life-learned experiences. These programs would ultimately benefit our community by uniting new mothers, forming lasting friendships, and most importantly, helping families recognize their strengths and their capacity to positively transform their lives.
Please support this cause by providing a donation today and by sharing this page with your family and friends. In return, I will run 13.1 miles at the San Francisco Marathon on July 26, 2015. A donation of any size, big or small, is greatly appreciated! All contributions are tax deductible.
With Sincere Gratitude,
