My Personal Fundraising Page

Thank you for visiting my 2021 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! As a three time preeclampsia survivor- once as a 26 weeker infant then again with both my pregnancies. Please make a donation to support our efforts to fund education and research into this life-threatening disorder of pregnancy.

I was born at 26 weeks gestation, 2 weeks before the 3rd trimester because my Mum had preeclampsia.  My birthweight was 2 lbs 3 oz.  Many years around my birthday my Mum and I visited the NICU where I was born to bring an updated picture of me for the board.  We hoped the picture brought hope to other parents who had tiny babies. 

I researched on the preeclampsia.org website when I got pregnant because I did not want to go through what my Mum endured.  I believe that knowing to take my blood pressure when I saw swelling around my eye and got a horrible headache could have saved my life or at least prevented a seizure or stroke.  My first baby stayed in 4 more days while I was monitored in (then) Florida Hospital - Orlando.  She was born 29 weeks 4 days and spent 40 days in the NICU.  She was born 2 lbs 7 oz.  Next pregnancy, I had learned that no exercise, stress or food intake would cause or effect preeclampsia.  I enjoyed giving into all my pregnancy cravings!  I had that baby at 34 weeks and he was born 4 lbs 5.7 oz.  Both were underweight due to the preeclampsia.
