"Thousands of women and babies die or get very sick each year from a dangerous condition called preeclampsia, a life-threatening disorder that occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Preeclampsia and related disorders such as HELLP syndrome and eclampsia are most often characterized by a rapid rise in blood pressure that can lead to seizure, stroke, multiple organ failure and death of the mother and/or baby." -Preeclampsia Foundation

Hello everyone! Welcome to the Cleveland site of the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia. I am a preeclampsia survivor and so are my four children. There is no known cause or cure for preeclampsia so we need your help to change that! Please help us reach our community with life saving information. One in 12 pregnant women will be diagnosed with preeclampsia. Help us spread awareness of the signs and symptoms and save mothers and babies!
Thank you to our generous sponsors!
