About This Activity

WHY SUPPORT THE FOUNDATION: The Alexis Joy Foundation’s mission is to bring attention to postpartum depression and create more comprehensive support network in the Pittsburgh area and hopefully beyond. We aim to create a community around Alexis’ story to make a difference, so no other woman feels alone with PPD or gets turned away from needed services.  We want to make sure no other family has to struggle to carry on.  Please visit our website for more information,
