This will be our 6th year participating in the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia in memory of our daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and much loved baby, Darby Grace Worrell, born to the angels on April 7, 2013.
Darby will celebrate her 5th birthday in Heaven this year, with her grandpops and aunt Karen. Her aunt Karen was instrumental in getting us to participate in this walk to raise funds to educate about the potentially devastating effects of preeclampsia, as well as to raise funds to research for a cure for preeclampsia so our daughters and granddaughters won't have to suffer the effects of this disorder of pregnancy. I will be forever grateful to Karen for getting us involved in such a worth cause, and for the thousands of dollars Darby's Team has raised since our inception.
As well, we'll walk this year in honor of Darby's cousin, Connor, who was born a bit early due to complications of preeclampsia. We're quite lucky that he and his mom were otherwise unaffected by this disorder, he was born healthy and is a thriving toddler now!!
