Self-Investment Publishing Joins PAWS with Owie BowWowie and Friends

Los Angeles, April 20, 2016 – For Immediate Release

“Comforting the hurts and hearts of hospitalized children and MOMS!”

It’s no surprise that Moms are more stressed-out than ever. Working moms, single moms, blended family moms, first time moms and growing family moms. The pressures to handle all the daily responsibilities and raise healthy well-adjusted children are overwhelming. It is uncontested that being a Mom is the hardest job you’ll ever love!

Now, take the normal stress of motherhood, (raising a healthy child) and add a monster to her child’s closet— cancer, cystic fibrosis, heart defects, diabetes, or one of the many ailments that children are diagnosed with, and all of a sudden her heart changes. Fear of the unknown arrives. Will my child survive? How do I help my child? Will my child have a normal life? How can I give my child everything he/she needs if I’m barely making it now?

Bravery, for these mothers, arrives in spurts. It’s attained within the smile of her child… a positive test result… a moment of hope… within the support of family… or the prayers and friendships of others.

Did you know that each year over 20 million children are hospitalized with a life-threatening illness and are in need of emotional comfort?

Mothers who take care of children with life-threatening illnesses stand face-to-face each day with the harsh reality that their children may not be here tomorrow, so they learn to appreciate each moment, and each moment becomes a valued memory.

Now, if a mother is 24/7 taking care of the wellness of her child, who is helping to take care of her emotional wellness?

Reports indicate that mothers find their best support from other moms, those who have felt and are handling the same stressors, and this is why we are pleased to announce that Self-Investment Publishing has joined PAWS with Owie BowWowie and Friends Foundation.

Owie BowWowie and Friends Foundation is a 501(c)3 which gives gifts of comfort to children who are hospitalized and in need of a FURiend named: Owie BowWowie. “Owie” is an endearing, plush dog who comes with his own bandages, comforting blanket, PAWFURmational story book, carrying case — and is delivered with a hug.

Self-Investment Publishing, has published a special-edition book specifically for MOMS titled: Stress Out! Moms Show Stress Who’s The Boss!  This 154-page gem is written by MOMS for MOMS, with the hope of inspiring, entertaining, educating and providing MOMS with a moment of comfort in knowing that they are not alone in dealing with the never-ending stresses of motherhood!
