My Personal Fundraising Page

Thank you for visiting my 2022 Promise Walk for Preeclampsia fundraising page. I am grateful for your donations and for your help in spreading the word about preeclampsia. My goal is to help our community raise funds and awareness and save the lives of moms and babies! Please make a donation to support our efforts to fund education and research into this life-threatening disorder of pregnancy.

Our Story

This cause is near and dear to me, as most of you know. Our dear Sophia was born 7 1/2 weeks prematurely due to my preeclampsia. Because of my condition, she was growth restricted, and I became quite ill. We both spent time in ICU -- she for 3 1/2 weeks -- and thankfully, it ended well for us. Others are not so lucky. Too many newborns and mothers die in the United States each year from complications of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. This condition is treatable during pregnancy, and unlike what you may have heard or read, delivery is not a cure for preeclampsia. Many women develop it post-partum. (My case became much worse after delivery, and at one point, I was on five medications to reduce my blood pressure.)

I will participate in the walk regardless of contributions as I'm doing it as much for solidarity and awareness as I am for fundraising.

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer. Take care.
