Jace's Journey Bio

In May of 2018, Coach Brandon Isaac sat in a hospital room with his son, Jace Alexander who was due to be born in a month but sadly had no fetal heartbeat. His wife, Tomeka, who was unconscious at the time was diagnosed with the life-threatening H.E.L.L.P (Hemolysis Elevated Liver Enzymes Low Platelet) Syndrome and lay fighting for her life. Forty-five (45) hospital days and 7 surgeries later, thanks to many prayers and an amazing surgical team, Tomeka and Brandon Isaac left the hospital together. The couple learned Tomekas sickness and Jaces death could have been prevented. 50,000 women each year almost die as a result of childbirth. Thats one mother every 10 minutes in the US. The causes of most near death emergencies are preventable. However, the risk of having complications is much greater for black women.

In honor of their son, the Isaacs created Jaces Journey to raise awareness and contribute to improving maternal/fetal healthcare disparities through education, advocacy and community engagement.

Jaces Journey Inc, a non-profit organization, was founded in 2019 to address racial disparities in maternal health outcomes. The US is the only industrialized nation with rising maternal mortality rates and the increase disproportionately affects women of color. African-American mothers are dying at 3-4 times the rate of non- Hispanic whites. Infants born to African-American mothers are dying at twice the rate as infants born to non- Hispanic white mothers. www.jacesjourney.org
