Wixom, MI (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
J&B Medical Supply Company is pleased to participate in the Spina Bifida Walk-N-Roll event in Sterling State Park in Monroe Michigan, on Saturday, June 22, 2013.
The focus of the event is to raise awareness of Spina Bifida, to understand the challenges those with this condition face, and to raise funds to support the local chapter of the Spina Bifida Association.
Spina Bifida is the most common permanently disabling birth defect in the United States. An average of eight babies every day are born with Spina Bifida or a similar birth defect of the brain and spine. There are over 65 million women in the United States who could become pregnant and each one is at risk of having a baby born with Spina Bifida.
Spina Bifida occurs when the spine of the baby fails to close. This creates an opening, or lesion, on the spinal column. Spina Bifida happens during the first month of pregnancy when the spinal column and brain, or neural tube, is formed. This is before most women even know they are pregnant.
“J&B Medical Supply is pleased to participate in this worthwhile community event,” notes Beth Shollenberger, RN, a media spokesperson for the company. “Our businesses have evolved to care for those with a variety of conditions, including diabetes, incontinence, and support for those who require catheters, as well as to help them deal with insurance coverage and to navigate Medicare/Medicaid issues, and we feel very strongly about getting involved with good causes and giving back to our local community. As a family-owned business in Wixom, Michigan, we are excited to participate and look forward to walking with members of the community.”
The Walk-N-Roll® for Spina Bifida event is a family-friendly walk that raises awareness and funds to support local community programs and services for those living with Spina Bifida. The event celebrates the accomplishments of the more than 166,000 Americans living with this birth defect.
