Thank you all for visiting my 2017 Promise Walk for Preeclampsia fundraising page.
After suffering Preeclampsia in September and losing Abigail (Abbie), my sweet innocent baby on October 2nd, Preeclampsia Awareness and a fight for a cure is near and dear to my heart!
Preeclampsia is a nasty disease that can sneak up at anytime after the 20 week mark of pregnancy. A woman can have a completely normal pregnancy and then all of a sudden this nasty disease and deathly high blood pressure can take over and cause seizures, organ damage to the liver and kidneys, and possibly death to the mother or 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 I hope to help spread the word and bring awareness! I encourage you all to bring awareness, too by donating so that the Preeclampsia Foundation can continue to FIGHT for a CURE!!
I also highly encourage you all to consider SUPPORTING by JOINING US at THE PROMISE WALK on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at Lenora Park in Snellville, GA.
