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. Just 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. Preeclampsia causes deathly high blood pressure, seizures, organ damage to the liver and kidneys, and possibly death to the mother, or in 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 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 highly encourage everyone to consider SUPPORTING and registering to join the Promise Walk on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at Mason Mill Park in Decatur. Sign up here: http://promisewalk.org/locationpage.asp?BranchID=86 and join: "Angel Abbie's Advocates" or start your own team!
I am very grateful for any and all donations to support the Preeclampsia Foundation's efforts to fund education and research into this life-threatening disorder of pregnancy. My goal is to help save the lives of moms and babies!!
