ACTRESS AND FORMER HOUSTONIAN KEYNOTES FOR SPARKLES OF LIFE MOTHER’S HEART CONFERENCE AND BRUNCH

Saturday, May 12 – Conference 9:00 – 11:30; Brunch Noon – Villa Ballroom – 3033 S. Dairy Ashford

WHO: This year’s Sparkles of Life keynote speaker is acclaimed actress and Houston native Renee Elise Goldsberry. A current cast member of “The Good Wife”.

She has also starred in several Broadway shows including The Color Purple, The Lion King, and Rent. Ms. Goldsberry also received two consecutive Daytime Emmy Award Nominations for her portrayal of “Evangeline Wil­liamson” on ABC’s One Life to Live. She has also received two NAACP Image Award Nominations and has graced the cover of several daytime magazines.

WHAT: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 10 percent of women (6.1 million) in the United States ages 15-44 have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant. For some couples, creating a family can become a painful challenge. For a variety of reasons, infertility can become a barrier instead of a breakthrough to becoming a stronger unit. Rhonda Nwosu and her husband Ral of Houston had no support as they wandered through their delayed parenting journey.

After enduring her difficult path to motherhood, Rhonda recognized a need to support women of similar plight. She turned her dark pain into Sparkles of Life, a passionate organization which gives voice and support to women and families throughout Houston and surrounding areas who are battling infertility and miscarriages. One of the ways the Nwosu’s want to help infertile couples is to develop Sparkles of Life chapters across the country, to replicate a much-needed support portal for the thousands of women and couples suffering in silence.
