Support For Mothers Who Have Lost An Infant

Mommies Enduring Neonatal Death (M.E.N.D) is a Christian non-profit organization whose purpose is to reach out to those who have lost a child to miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death and offer a way to share experiences and information through our monthly support meetings, a bi-monthly newsletter and  our website. 

M.E.N.D was established in 1996 and since its establishment several chapters have opened all over the United States.  The Wichita Falls Chapter began monthly meetings April 12th, 2012.  The support group will meet the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at Christ Home Place Ministries. 

"I am grateful for the opportunity to start a Wichita Falls chapter of M.E.N.D.  My husband and I lost our first son Jacob, "Sarah Fukasawa said,  "He was stillborn at 36 weeks on February 8th, 2010.  Our pregnancy was completely normal until that point.  We weren't given an explanation for his death.  It was a very difficult time in our lives, and I found comfort in sharing and connecting with others who had been through similar experiences.  It is my hope that M.E.N.D. Wichita Falls can bring the same comfort to others.  Unfortunately, this happens every day in our community; however I am glad to offer support for these families.  M.E.N.D Wichita Falls is the only support group of its kind in our community." 

For more information about M.E.N.D. Wichita Falls, call 940-642-3284, email Sarah at sarahf@mend.org or go to the M.E.N.D. website at www.mend.org.
