In 2017 I was rushed into an emergency c-section due to pre-eclampisa and HELLP syndrome. 

What we thought would be just a 1x scary event ended up being the worst nightmare of our lives. After the c-section, I went into organ failure, my kidneys and liver were shutting down and due to the extreme fluid in my body, my lungs were about to be flooded with fluid. During that time I was septic and went into DIC. I was placed into a medically induced coma & my family prayed for a miracle. 

After a little over a week, I finally pulled through and that is when part of my recovery began, but little did we know that my medical scare was far from over. I was on dialysis, I had to be drained, I had to have my c-section surgery completely redone. It was a rough 5 weeks just wanting it all to be over.

Finally after a little over 2 weeks me and my babies finally met. They spent some time in the NICU, and Sorana suffered the most. She was born seizing and the right side of her brain was severley impacted. She struggled in the NICU, but that little girl is FIERCE and she pulled through with minimal damage. And I know exactly why she made it, becuase that girl knows NO Fear and doesn't bow down.

However, I stayed in the hopstial for 2 more weeks after they were released.  So finaly some good news, we get to be a family of 4 at home and I get to heal. Well that was not the case. I ended up with a severe infection in my abdomen and needed an addiitonal major surgery to remove the abceses. I was sent home with A LOT of stitches and tubes sticking out of my bely to drain the infection pockets. 

Overall I spent the 1st 6 months of motherhood in and out of the hospital. I had over 5 surgical procedures and 1 is still pending. I have pancreatic insufficiency and am now a T1 Diabetic. And my life has been forever scarred from this awful disease that is killing mothers across the globe.

I know I went through that to make an impact and a difference in lives. And here I am asking you to join me. Donate or walk in honor of ME and in memory of those who didn't make it.

So little research has been done that we still don't know or udnersand the life long complications that I could suffer from. But all i know is I will keep advocating for other mamas and for my daughter to have a safe birth, if she decdes to have kids of her own.
