Join the Foundation's Remembrance Project: Why We Must Write a new Legacy of Wellness

Posted by Black Women's Wellness Day on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 Under: Remembrance Project

The impact of health disparities on the lives of Black women is real. We cannot deny the statistics, nor the personal stories we share of Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, Friends lost too soon to illness. Remembering and honoring the lives of these women is a critical part of our own healing and our journey to once and for all make our health a personal priority. 

Please join the Foundation for Black Women's Wellness in launching the Remembrance Project, a nationwide registry of photos and names of women who have left us too soon, but whose lives were not lived in vain. Through them, we gain the strength to confront the health realities we presently face as Black women, and to write a new legacy of wellness for ourselves and our daughters. 

To participate:  Submit your loved one's full name and photo in jpeg or png format to Include a 250 word tribute, in addition to your loved one's birth date, passing date, cause of death, and age at the time of passing. 

For questions or more information, contact or call (608) 729-1264.

*Disclaimer: photos should be submitted electronically. Original photos will not be accepted. All electronic submissions remain the property of the Foundation for Black Women's Wellness to be used in public information campaigns regarding Black women's health. For more information or questions, contact our office.
