EmpowHER Launches Mom-Focused Resource Page in Honor of Mother's Day

Page Offers Articles From a Mother's Perspective, Helpful Tips and a Special Tribute to a Mother's Life Recently Cut Short by Cancer

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 05/05/11 -- In celebration of Mother's Day on May 8, EmpowHER has launched a special Mother's Day resource page, packed with free information about issues related to being a mom. On this page, women can find stories from mothers on their perspectives of motherhood, helpful tips for moms, and more. The page also features a special tribute to Jessika Morgan, a young mother who bravely fought many medical issues related to cervical cancer, but who sadly passed away in February of this year at the age of 32.

Jessika Morgan's journey is documented in great detail in an online profile created by Morgan's sister-in-law and caretaker, Stacy Buff, through EmpowHER's 1000Women community campaign, at 1000Women.com. The 1000Women campaign seeks to engage 1,000 women who will then share their personal health story with another 1,000 women. The campaign's goal is to get 1,000,000 women sharing their most personal health issues with friends, family and even strangers. Women can do this by creating profiles on the 1000Women Web site where they can enter their story, pictures and video and other users can comment and share those stories with others.

"Jessika was an amazing mother who truly loved children. We will miss her so much this Mother's Day, but are comforted in the fact that her legacy lives on and can help touch the lives of other women," said Buff, who noted that Jessika's mom, Julie, is a cervical cancer survivor. "In honor of Jessika this Mother's Day, please make sure that you are being proactive about your health needs and don't stop if you aren't getting the answers you believe you need from your doctor. Nothing is more important than your health and you have to put it into your own hands."

Other information on this special page includes EmpowHER's most popular article on motherhood, "Things I Took For Granted Before I Had Kids", a first-hand experience from a mother who began her journey a little later than most, entitled "How My Older Mom-Hood Began", and "5 Misconceptions About Being A New Mother -- How Your Life Will Really Change", a realistic view for new mothers that was co-written by a pediatrician.

Go to EmpowHER's Mother's Day resource page.

"Mothers are often so busy advocating for the health and wellness of their families, that they often put themselves last," said Michelle King Robson, Founder, Chairperson and CEO of EmpowHER. "This Mother's Day, I hope mothers everywhere will not only enjoy their day, but also remember that they must actually put themselves first -- so they remain happy and healthy and have the ability to keep their families happy and healthy, too. EmpowHER has a wonderful, supportive community and resources to help make that happen."
