Thank you for visiting my 2018 Promise Walk for Preeclampsia fundraising page.
I am grateful for your donations and for your help in spreading the word about preeclampsia. My goal is to help our community raise funds and awareness and save the lives of moms and babies!
In 2012 I was diagnosed with HELLP Syndrome while in labor with Brendan. Thankfully he was born full term and healthy. But unfortunately, after his birth my condition worsened and the hematoma that had developed on my liver due to HELLP ruptured. I was given a 20% chance of surviving. I nearly left my husband without a wife and my newborn baby without a mother. Through the quick thinking and actions of my OB and interventional radiologist, my life was saved and I was blessed to recover to raise my sweet son. Joe and I were even lucky enough to have our second baby boy, two years later.
