[APPEAL] Postpartum psychosis & a salute to Heather Coleman

Tom Jackman of State of NOVA Blog of the Washington Post posted an article today on my friend Heather Coleman. Heather tells her story of the affect of postpartum psychosis on her personally. Please read the article on Washington Post.com.

"Postpartum depression affects between 12 and 20 percent of new moms in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, though some mothers’ support groups think the number is higher. The symptoms can range from mild to severe, and can be an indicator of mental illness."

Heather has told her story to " warn both new mothers and their families of the serious dangers of postpartum syndrome." and also needs your help :

a) Help DC Police let Officer Boone of Forestville connect with Heather Coleman ( Chief Lanier you must help) 
b) Track down the Mr. James and Sister from Richmond  with the phone number 240- 216-XXXX who helped heather.

Thank you all in advance for your help. Heather I salute you.
