Thank you all for visiting my 2018 Promise Walk for Preeclampsia fundraising page!
After having Preeclampsia in September 2016 and losing Abigail (Abbie), my sweet innocent baby girl, Preeclampsia Awareness and a fight for a cure is near and dear to my heart!!
Preeclampsia is a nasty pregnancy complication that can sneak up at anytime after the 20 week mark. Like in my case, a woman can have a completely normal pregnancy and then all of a sudden Preeclampsia can sneak up and set in with little to no warning signs. Preeclampsia is a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy that causes deathly high blood pressure, seizures, organ damage to the liver and kidneys, and possibly death to the mother, or like in my case, the baby. Later in life, a women who had preeclampsia during pregnancy faces a greater risk of heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure.
There is not enough knowledge about Preeclampsia and the warning signs. I hope to help spread the word and bring awareness to our community so that mommies and their babies do not die.
I encourage you all to help me raise awareness and funds to the Preeclampsia Foundation so that research can be done and we can continue FIGHTING for a CURE!
