The Cranford area NJ Promise Walk is proud to announce our 2015 MISSION FAMILY, the Powells!
Trashaun and JP Powell were blessed with a baby girl this past summer. However, in early 2013 their lives were changed forever when they lost their first baby to preeclampsia and HELLP. Trashaun had heard of preeclampsia but like many women she assumed "this will never happen to me." The Powells are honored to be a part of the Cranford area Promise Walk and are hopeful that their efforts will have an impact on this devastating disease. Please join us on Sunday, May 17 at Oak Ridge Park (in Clark) to hear more about the Powell Family and their experience.
