Jennifer Faustman (McGowen) was an amazing woman! She had a knack for making people smile, laugh and genuinely feel loved where ever she was. She was always looking for ways to make this world a little bit better whether it be stopping to pick up some trash in the park or donating hours of service to her church and community.
She was an amazing daughter, sister, wife, friend and, for a short time, she was also an amazing mother.
HELLP, which is the life threatening pregnancy complication associated with Preeclampsia, took her life 2 days after giving birth to her baby boy.
Her symptoms were classic and started a couple hours post delivery with a severe headache. 12 hours later, a time which was supposed to be one of the happiest times of her and her husband's lives as well as our lives, turned into a nightmare that quickly spiraled out of control.
We dedicate this team to her and we walk to raise awareness so no more babies, husbands or families have to go home from the hospital with one less than they came with.
