From Karen Wachenheim, Zumba instructor and event organizer:

March 13, 2013 is a day that our family will never, ever forget! It is the day that my sister in law, Cynthia Wachenheim, took her own life due to Postpartum Psychosis. She jumped from her 8 story apartment building window with her infant son attached to her. Miracously, our nephew survived but Cindy did not. We were so shocked as this was not the Cindy we knew and loved. This was her illness that took over mind. It has become our mission to bring awareness to as many people as we can so we can try and help this from happening to others!

I want to make this a celebration of her life. I want everyone to know what a wonderful person she was. She was amazing, warm, smart, down to earth, kind and caring. This is something she would have fought for and helped with. And she loved to dance!! Let's dance in her memory. And let's tell the world that Postpartum is real. Let's tell the world it's not necessarily Baby Blues. That there are different severites and that it can be as severe as Pospartum psychosis. And that there is help available for moms, dads, families and friends. And they can get through it. Let's do it for Cindy. Let's do it for your moms, daughters, sisters, aunts, wives, girlfiends!!!

 

Cost is $20 for two hours of dancing.

Doors will open at 1:30pm - Join us and check out the raffle!

Dancing begins at 2:00pm

Bring your friends!!
