Join us on Sunday, September 28th for an afternoon of inspiring performing arts, to empower and encourage the dialysis community of New York City! Witness the dialysis story of Lady Michael and be touched by original dramatization and songs from her experience. From unique acts, songwriter David Bratton (“Every Praise”), to recording artists Maurette Brown-Clark and Vicki Yohe, we have a line-up of great talents to strengthen the heart and spirit!
Doors open at 3pm, and the concert begins at 4pm SHARP. Come with the expectation of release and healing! Dialysis patients can attend FREE, inquire with your social worker for ticketing information and scholarship applications. For the general public, tickets are $20 each. Online ticketing is now available via Paypal here. (Prices include tax, fees, and shipping).
Lady Tania Michael Ministries is a faith-based organization whose mission since 2003 is to support dialysis communities all over with the power of music, spreading medical knowledge on body health, and rewarding select dialysis patients with scholarships for college. Started by Tania Michael of Beulah Tabernacle church, who at the age of 20 was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease, put on dialysis for 5 years until she received a life-saving kidney transplant from her husband of then-15 years. Now 13 years dialysis-free, LTMM is launching an international tour to spread awareness on kidney health and dialysis, encouraging and uplifting dialysis patients all over.

"I’d been studying German for a few years, and I met this woman who gave me the opportunity to go to Germany for a full year. The brochure looked very nice. The program included hikes, volunteer work, singing in church. It was very expensive, but my family thought it would be a great experience for me, so all my relatives chipped in to pay the program fee. I was so excited for months. On the day that I was supposed to leave, I went to the airport, and waited in line to check my baggage. When I got to the front of the line, they told me that my ticket was a forgery. When I tried to call the woman’s phone, it had been disconnected."
Jesus, I wish HONY followers could be able to fund her that trip she always dreamed of, just like how they would with all these other random New Yorkers they had pitched together for in the past :/
(From what I understand, the police thought they heard a gunshot and started throwing tear gas into the crowd. Correct me if I’m wrong)
And a sneak peek. Man was that lace expensive! But it’s the perfect touch so whatever, haha! Momoko would be proud. Hope someone buys once completed photos are up! #latenightsewing #lolitafashion #eglcommunity #dixmacabresewing
I was sitting in the back of my dad’s church at a funeral. I just came from the doctor’s office where I heard the words, “Your numbers are not good, and you have to start dialysis.” For a while I had been taking medication to slow down the polycystic kidney disease, I ate minimal protein and sodium and definitely prayed a lot in hopes that the disease wouldn’t overtake me.
Ten years earlier I underwent tests at the city hospital where I was employed in the hemodialysis unit. Because my blood pressure was uncontrolled, the unit doctor and nurses were concerned. The doctor recommended a renal sonogram. The results of the sonogram came back and threw me for a loop. I can still vividly hear the doctor’s voice, “Tania, do you know you have multiple cysts in your kidney? It’s polycystic kidney disease.” To make matters worse the doctor said, “There’s no cure for this, dialysis is inevitable.” Well, I was about twenty years old and honestly I didn’t know what to make of it. ….
The news I received right before the funeral in November 1995 effected me greatly. ….. I kept thinking about how my kids would adjust to my decreased energy level. I questioned would I be able to run or jump with them. I thought; this is not how I planned my life.

HOPE BRINGS PEACE is now live on Tumblr!
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing inspiration and empowerment to the dialysis community. First New York City, then Charlotte NC, then hopefully across the United States and parts of the World!
Lady Tania Michael Ministries (LTMM) was started in 2003 by Lady T. Michael, a licensed nephrology social worker in New York City— who was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease at the age of 20, struggled as a dialysis patient for several years before receiving a life-saving kidney transplant in 2001 from her husband of then-15 years, Pastor Horace Michael of Beulah Tabernacle. Now, 13 years dialysis-free, she has a fierce passion to serve the dialysis community with spiritual healing and empowerment through the arts and performing arts.
On September 28th, 2014, join us for the reboot of the Hope Brings Peace: World Tour concert series in Brooklyn, NY, as Lady Michael’s story is portrayed through dramatizations and musical performances, featuring several talented guests such as J. David Bratton (songwriter of Hezekiah Walker’s “Every Praise”), and recording artist Maurette Brown-Clark! Admission for every dialysis patient is FREE, so we encourage all to come for the festivities! Contact your social worker for more information on ticketing and scholarship application. For all others, admission is a $20 donation! Online ticketing options soon to be announced.
Follow us to keep updated on our ministry & health events, concert tour dates, volunteering, scholarships, as well as information on Polycystic Kidney Disease and other kidney ailments, dialysis treatments, and body health.

People will go out of their way to try to make you look like you’re crazy for reacting negatively to the stupid shit they did.
Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.
For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.
Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.
People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.
Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”
Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.
SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.
