Reviews for Sepsis Alliance
This site is doing a great job in bringing out the awareness in Sepsis.
I found Sepsis Alliance to be user friendly, helpful and courteous. It's important for those who are chronically ill due to Sepsis to find answers in order to understand why & how their lives have been changed. I don't think the public is aware of these issues unless they or a member of their family are afflicted. Kudos to those who volunteer for Sepsis Alliance in order to help those who are looking.
I wish I could have found this organization a lot earlier than I did. It could have saved my niece's life. They spread awareness of a disease most people don't know exists. Not only that, but they educate the symptoms. They save lives!!! I'm glad that I have found this organization, because it has helped our family cope by reading other people's stories who have been stricken with Sepsis. They also let us share our little girl's story, so hopefully someone who reads it will be able to save another child's life! I am so grateful for the wonderful leaders at Sesis Alliance. They do an amazing job!
Almost a year later, I thought sepsis was just another word for infection. Then I found this website after I read about how Patty Duke died: Sepsis Alliance. I guess I never fully realized how much trouble I was really in. Then I started reading stories about similar experiences and symptoms...many much worse. I am disabled but thankful to be alive. This sepsis condition needs to be in the forefront of the things all hospitals and emergency look for when someone just continues to decline for no apparent reason. I am so glad I found this website and I continue to visit it and get emails from it.
Their cause is so incredibly important
in spreading the urgent message regarding Sepsis awareness. I would highly recommend.

With all of the misconceptions out there about sepsis, Sepsis Alliance is a vital resource for credible and reliable information about what this scourge is, how to recognize it and how to advocate for proper, effective care. Far too many people still die of sepsis every day, and yet most people don't have any idea that's the case or that they too might be stricken. SA gets the word out in a way that makes sense to everyone. Kudos!

Sepsis Alliance is remarkably effective at providing resources and support to those affected by sepsis, and at reaching out to both the public and medical communities with educational initiatives. They've fostered genuine grass roots engagement so that folks are learning, sharing experiences, and enjoying themselves in healthy, wholesome ways, such as walks and volleyball tournaments, as they learn and raise funds to support and educate others about the signs of and treatment for sepsis. Sepsis Alliance is doing an amazing job with a skeletal staff. Bravo!!
I have been involved with Sepsis Alliance for two years, donating and attending their Sepsis Heroes awards event each autumn. During that period through the efforts of SA and collaborating organizations public awareness of sepsis has increased significantly and lives have been saved. In addition to educating the public and medical community about the symptoms, timeline, and treatment for sepsis, SA provides much-needed support for sepsis victims and their families. SA is directed by a small group of incredibly caring, committed volunteers who give generously of their time, talents, and expertise because they believe so strongly in the importance of their mission.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
endow them with more money so that they would have the resources to educate a wider audience, including more areas of government and the medical community, and increase support opportunities for sepsis victims and their families.
Was your donation impactful?

Thanks, Sepsis Alliance, for sharing your life stories and bringing greater awareness to this deadly disease.

I've found this organization's website to be very helpful in terms of educating non-medical people about the signs and treatment of sepsis. The information is straightforward and up to date, and I trust this source completely.
SCAM !!! I contacted them as i am about to become a victim of Drs refusal to properly treat a kidney infection, which will then turn to sepsis (It happens 30,000-70,000 times per year. All they could say was good luck. They are only interestedin donors, and stories to make them look good to get moremoney. WHAT DO THEY DO WITH THE MONEHY other than to create new ways to ask for more money! Certainly they do nothing to help people who are about to get sepsis, have sepsis or know someone becoming a sepsis victim. Most sepsis deaths in the US start as simple UTI, which Drs refuse to treat, then they become kidney infection, the Drs still refuse to treat, they die of sepsis and the Drs say "the bacteria killed them. The sepsis alliance is a scam to make money off victims!
