Meet our 2017 Coordinators: Wendy Fisher and Crystal Carroll
In 2015, my husband and I were elated to find out we were not only expecting, but expecting twin boys! At 23 weeks, I was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia and HELLP.
Sadly, our only option to save my life was to deliver our boys, even though they were not big enough to survive. We delivered two angels on October 29, 2015. If we hadn't known what symptoms to look out for, I could have been lost as well. That is why educating women on the symptoms to watch for is so important, and research to find a cure for this horrible disease is critical. I am honored to serve as the co-chair of this amazing event and I am looking forward to working with the foundation and the wonderful group of volunteers that make this event such a success and get us one step closer to finding a cure!Crystal:
With our first pregnancy we were diagnosed with preeclampsia. I was placed on bed rest, and our son was born at 36 weeks. He then stayed in the NICU for a week. We want to bring awareness because until we were diagnosed, we had never heard of it. As an expecting mother, our family believes you should know the signs and symptoms before they start. That starts with being educated about the condition. I am excited to be given the opportunity to come along side this amazing organization and participate in this event with them. I look forward to seeing you at the walk! Interested in being a vendor or sponsor?
