Here is an update on Jeritha Brown, who we first met in 2019 (see previous post). The mother of five from St. Clair Shores survived an incredible ordeal that is chronicled here in the St. Clair Shores Sentinel.

Jeritha is doing much better now. She goes to dialysis three days a week for 3.5 hours each time. She has gone back to her previous center in Rosewood after many weeks of going to Southfield when she had COVID and had to go to a special dialysis center for people with COVID. She is still trying to qualify for the kidney transplant list.

The Soroptomists Club of Grosse Pointe is helping once again. They had previously awarded Jeritha a scholarship to the Dorsey Schools, where she graduated with honors as a medical assistant. Now, they have formed a team to walk in the Michigan Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo on Sunday, May 15. The team, Soroptimists for Jeritha, is comprised of Jeritha’s family, friends and Soroptomists from the area. The funds they raise will help the NKFM continue to prevent kidney disease and help those who are living with it.

Jeritha insists that she’s strong but we’re glad that the NKFM and Soroptomists International are able to help her and her family in so many ways. On May 4, the St. Clair Shores Sentinel published an update.
