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!
Please make a donation to support our efforts to fund education and research into this life-threatening disorder of pregnancy.
I have been fortunate to be relatively healthy my entire life and had no reason to expect a bumpy ride with my pregnancy with Lars. My world was crushed when I was diagnosed with preeclampsia at 29 weeks. It was scary to learn that it is the leading cause of maternal and infant mortality/prematurity. It's a powerless feeling because we don't yet know what causes it or a way to prevent it from worsening once contracted. I'm walking to advance research so hopefully moms in the future can have happy and healthy pregnancies and babies!
