ETTWomen for Jenny + Her Mom

For the past year, Jenny has been an integral part of ETTWomen and the ETTWomen Foundation, volunteering her time and talents to everyone in our organization.

At the end of August while on vacation, Jenny received a heartbreaking call:  her 64 years old mother Divina had just suffered a heart attack and was being rushed into surgery.

Jenny went back home immediately for her care. Divina has diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and suffers severe environmental allergic reactions. When her catheterization was performed, three  stents were inserted. Since August, she has been hospitalized in intensive care on three occasions due to complications related to heart failure, including: pulmonary edema, respiratory difficulties, uncontrolled blood pressure, sugar levels and heart rate, anemia, elevated levels of creatinine, E.Coli bacteria, among others. Last week, she was discharged pending follow-up consultations from various specialists, medication, cardiovascular therapy.

As a result of ICU hospitalization, surgery and medication costs, their insurance coverage for 2017 has been exhausted, until August 2018. Expenses exceed the $20,000 mark.

Please help us lighten their load! Every dollar counts! On behalf of ETTWomen, thank you in advanced for your love and support.

#ETTWomenTV is on the Progressive Achievers Inc. Mother & Daughter Tea Red Carpet with founder Joi Mikki Stanley-Smith!

We had an amazing time supporting the wonderful work the organization accomplishes through their mentorship programs for your girls. In 1995, Joi M. Stanley founded Progressive Achievers Inc., an organization dedicated to researching innovative ways to help women and children. As the group began to grow, fundraisers and community awareness took on a major role in supporting organizations such as Children’s Miracle Network, the NAACP, The National Council of Negro Women, Breast Cancer Research, and Literacy for Children. Their mission is to create global teams and chapters that are committed to making a difference in the lives of women and children.

Presenting sponsors included University Pain Medicine Center, Liberta Co Ltd/Baby Foot, and the Bahamas. Myrtle Beach Car Accident Lawyers | Joye Law Firm is also there.

You will know how are steroids taken because these doses may be 10 to 100 times higher than doses prescribed to treat medical conditions. Steroids are also applied to the skin as a cream, gel, or patch.

Guests included Courtenay Hall (BELLA Editor-in-Chief), Dan Hall (BELLA Publisher), Kathie Lee Gifford (Today Show Host), Hoda Kotb (Today Show Host), Kristen Taekman (Bravo’s RHONY), Melissa Francis (Fox News Anchor), Carson Kressley (TV Personality), Catherine Curtin (Orange is the New Black), Charles Frattini (Discovery Channel’s Naked and Afraid), Dr. Tabasum Mir (Bravo’s Blood Sweat & Heels), Taylor Strecker (SirisuXM’s Cosmo’s Wake Up with Taylor), Andrea Helfrich (EDM Festival host of ULTRA music festivals), Max Mackenzie (actor), Shayna Leigh (singer), Nicole Lapi (Host of “Hatched” on CBS).

According to, it is really fun when you have your friends in a party throwing shots, chatting, and laughing. But the true fun when time comes that we don’t party no more is to practice sewing. From a girl who goes into a party into a mom in the house loving his sew works. That’s Bambini Clothing.
