The GCGH Foundation will use the donated funds to support ongoing projects such as their Sweet Dreams Baby Bundles program that helps provide safe sleep training, prenatal care, breast-feeding assistance, and infant care education and resources to GCGH patients, as well as help support the Lexi Poindexter Memorial Project that provides free blood pressure monitors and education to all GCGH pregnant and postpartum patients.

The Lexi Poindexter Memorial Project was created in memory of Lexi who passed away from a brain hemorrhage on March 28th, 2019, just 13 days after giving birth to her second child. According to her family, the exact reason for the brain hemorrhage is unclear, but it is known that her blood pressure spiked very high the evening her brain hemorrhage occurred. Through this project, Lexi’s family and the GCGH Foundation has worked to promote blood pressure awareness and education to pregnant and postpartum populations.
