Riley Matters

In 2013, we were 36 weeks pregnant with our second child, a girl. Everything was picture perfect, an easy pregnancy. Until, suddenly, it wasn’t. After not feeling her moving for some time, we went to get her checked out, but it was too late. Our Riley Quinn was already gone, and I was severely preeclamptic. I had had no symptoms, no warning signs of what was about to happen. Luckily we were able to have another child after her, but again had complications with preeclampsia that required her being induced early, and necessitating a stay in the NICU.

Now, we try our best to educate as many people as possible, and to help find a cause and a cure for this terrible condition. We are honored to be coordinators for this event. Our greatest hope is that we can help prevent someone else from experiencing tragedy or a dangerous birth experience. The goal is for everyone to have happy and healthy pregnancies and births!

We can never tell you how deeply we are touched by your support for our little family. It means so much if we are able to help another family recognize and catch the signs of Preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome, and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy before it's too late.

If poor Riley's short life can have such a drastic impact on someone else's world, maybe it will show just how much she still matters.

We love you, little lady, and always will.

To help raise funds for our team, we are holding our 2nd Annual Riley Quinn Charity Yard Sale on June 3rd and 4th, rain or shine. We are currently accepting donations, so if you have anything you were spring cleaning and looking to send off to a good cause, look our way! This year we have a corporate donor willing to match what we make at the sale dollar for dollar, so your contributions will go twice as far! We can pick up or accept drop offs, whichever you prefer. With your help, we can make this our best year yet! Contact Mary at marytkorey@hotmail.com for more information.

Please make a donation to support our efforts to fund education and research into this life-threatening disorder of pregnancy.
