Reviews for Sepsis Alliance

Rating: 5 stars

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.

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!

This non profit organization is top on the list. Not only does it allow tributes but most importantly, it brings awareness of this horrible condition. I, along with many others never understood how this affects society. Anyone can be affected. Sepsis.Org has brought and will continue to bring awareness to the population and save many lives while doing so.

I lost my mother to Sepsis and was able to find comfort reading other families accounts of their loss and survival of Sepsis. The information on the website was helpful for me in understanding the progression and cause of the disease. I also wrote a tribute memorial for my mother and it has already been featured on social media and the website. Thank you to the Sepsis Alliance for bringing this important medical issue out in the open and hosting honest discussions about the fatalities and loss as well as the survivors of Sepsis.

I told my sepsis story on the sepsis alliance website and it was truly an inspiration for me to read just a couple of the personal stories from others who have survived sepsis. Their website brings me hope and relief. I felt anxious because I have been sick with sepsis 3 times and twice went into shock. The memories sometimes come up in my mind as pictures and I was struggling with fear about getting sepsis again but not being strong enough to fight for my life. I googled sepsis and when I found this website my mind was put to ease and gaining more understanding about sepsis from the site was calming. I am thankful to those running the site.

Without sepsis alliance I would not have the information I needed to help my recovery from septic shock. There is little or no support for victims and their families in the UK. If you have cancer or any other critical illness there is support for you throughout your recovery but for sepsis survivors there is nothing. Thank you sepsis alliance for being there.

This organization was a Godsend to me after my diagnosis with Sepsis. All the questions I had that no one in the immediate medical industry had answers for. I was able to gather information, read other survivors stories and understand more about my condition. Not only is it alarming to know so many people as myself had never heard of this, but the number in the medical field who were not aware of the symptoms. Sepsis Alliance is top notch in communication and education.
