Global Motherhood Unites Mothers Around The World #InspireCare

These photos represent a few of the many programs supported by Johnson & Johnson and its partner organizations to serve the health and well-being of communities and people around the world. Read more about these programs and others by visiting: http://www.jnj.com/connect/caring/

Have you ever stopped to think about the Global Impact of Motherhood? It's certainly very common to think that Mothers solely impact their children and so easy to forget that the impact of a Mother is actually much wider spread! The values that you are instilling in your child affect every single person your child comes in contact with.

That was then:

For me, my inspiration and my example is my Mom, she has faced more challenges in her lifetime than this post has room for, but it's her grace under fire and strong example that has been my greatest legacy and greatest gift from her. My Father passed away when I was very young and my Mother had to be a Mom and a Dad and a sole provider for her family, and a caregiver to her own Mother at a very early age which certainly wasn't easy. She made it all look easy though!

And this year when I faced an incredibly daunting Medical Challenge she was right there with me the whole time! As a Cancer Survivor she was able to help me overcome my own Medical Setback and help me to navigate the difficult waters that patients run into when it comes to the Medical System.

This is now:

Johnson & Johnson and its partners support many programs that meet and cater to the needs of moms and babies in the United States and around the world.  They have been committed, for many years, to touching more than one billion people’s lives daily through health care products, services, and a variety of programs that cater to the needs of the community.  At this year’s LATISM 2012 conference, they will be presenting some of these programs under the theme “global motherhood.” If you are attending the conference, be sure to visit suite Arboretum II during the LATISM 2012 conference to talk to Johnson & Johnson and its partners about its global motherhood initiatives.

Not attending the conference? No worries, you can get involved by helping to raise awareness for global motherhood by using your social networks to help spread the word! By using the Hashtag #InspireCare on twitter you can not only read stories about Motherhood across a wide variety of Blogs, you can also join in the conversation and raise awareness in support of Johnson & Johnson's Global Efforts!

And because you know I love ending things with a question so you can join in the conversation, here are today's questions:

What inspires you to make sure that your family is healthy and thriving every day? Is there a person who inspires you to be the best mother you can be?
