Rockin' Joy Rose & Daughter Zena
The list is LONG when you consider all that Joy has accomplished considering where she was 15 years ago…. a stay at home mom with 4 kids….
Then days after her youngest was born, she was diagnosed with Lupus, which in her case was life-threatening… Fast-forward seven years, multiple hospital stays and one kidney transplant later, Joy was back and she made a commitment to do everything she could to empower herself and other women to lead better lives.
Here’s my favorite part… She became a rock star… FOR REALS!!!
As the lead singer of her band Housewives on Prozac, her post-recovery mission began – not only did she go out to perform with her band but she was creating a venue for women!! and that’s when Mamapalooza was born, a series of festivals across the country that generate community awareness of cultural, social and economic issues while showcasing mom-music performers and women-owned businesses.
