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! Many of you know that I was affected with preeclampsia with both of our boys. With Hayden, my preeclampsia brought on induction 2.5 weeks early. With Heath, I had postpartum preeclampsia that presented after my baby and I had been discharged from the hospital. I was readmitted, started on magnesium sulfate to prevent seizures, and placed on oral hypertension meds. Both experiences were scary, painful, and filled with emotions. I especially had a hard time going back to be readmitted because we had to leave our older son who I had already missed for 4 days. I was ready to be home and start our new life as a family of 4. I do not wish this disease on anyone and I would love to see a better understanding of the condition in my lifetime.
Please make a donation to support our efforts to fund education and research into this life-threatening disorder of pregnancy.
