Description

The Jesse Cause is named after Chris and Shelene Keith’s son Jesse, who was born with Group B strep (GBS). The couple founded the non-profit organization in hopes of sparing other families the devastating effects of GBS. The Jesse Cause Foundation worked closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure that nationwide testing of all pregnant women for Group B strep became a standard of care during pregnancy. The Web site offers resources on GBS for medical professionals, expectant parents, and families affected by GBS. The "Save Our Babies Project" is dedicated to bringing awareness of Group B strep to every city and state.
