Reviews for Sepsis Alliance

Rating: 5 stars

My husband survived sepsis, after being Airlifted to a hospital 200 miles away, 2 neurosurgeries, 70 days in the hospital, rehab through inpatient, home health, and outpatient. We are the lucky ones and he arrived at an ER that included sepsis assessment. I have been shocked to find out how many medical providers don't realize how rapid and deadly sepsis can progress. Sepsis Alliance has many informative posts that I share through social media and privately. It is critical that the general public and medical personnel increase their awareness of what sepsis is and how critical it is to respond rapidly. Sepsis Alliance is helping me in my personal mission. Thank you, SA

The Sepsis Alliance has gone above and beyond in helping us cope with losing our son to Sepsis. In addition, the information that they provide, we have been able to share with many family, friends and co-workers -- and in return, raise funds for their cause. They are responsive to personal requests and never cease to amaze me. The information on their website is great and helped us make serious decisions at a critical time in our lives.

Raising awareness will hopefully save lives. If signs were recognized sooner my husband might still be alive.
Thank you so much for your efforts and the opportunity to share my story.

Having lost my mother to sepsis/septic shock, I committed to find out all I could, how I could help, how I could keep people informed so they aren't sideswiped like we were. 27 hours from diagnosis to death. Thank you for an informative alliance, people just don't know.

I am so thankful for the great work the Sepsis Alliance is doing to raise awareness of the serious nature of Sepsis. I hope that the medical profession will work to do better in educating themselves and their patients about Immune Deficiency and what that can cause.

This is a great website for information about Sepsis. It took me losing my husband to truly understand how devastating septic shock can be. In my opinion, awareness needs to be raised about the risk of sepsis from infections and especially people living without their spleen.

This is a great place for people to share what they are going through and to get the support from others who can light a candle in a dark place. I am a sepsis survivor who was having trouble coping with all the stuff that follows after a disease like this. After searching online and finding their website i felt that this had to be one of the best support sites ive ever found. As soon as my story was published messages started flooding in from others that have gone through or are going through the stuff i have been struggling with. Please keep up the awesome work you people are dojng to get awareness out there for this aweful diseaee.

The Sepsis Alliance website is an excellent resource for the public as well as healthcare providers. They make opportunities to volunteer so easy- fundraising links, contributions to Faces of Sepsis stories, and educational materials to help spread awareness. It's all right there. The Sepsis Alliance staff if responsive and professional. This is a nonprofit that is a pleasure to support!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

The Sepsis Alliance provides a great service in getting the message out to all medical & general public about the warning signals of Sepsis & the dangers.

We need to do more to find ways to cure this, & the Sepsis Alliance is leading the way. Great job!

My beautiful 15 year-old daughter, Mallory, died from sepsis 17 days after critical injuries suffered in a car accident. I am a nurse and have cared for septic patients, never dreaming I would lose my own precious child from the complication of infections. This is not a reflection of my daughter’s care. Mal had superb care; she was monitored for infections and immediately treated. We were told the very first day she could die from an infection in 3 weeks. I was introduced to the sepsis alliance when I was invited to attend the sepsis campaign kick-off after sharing Mallory's story with someone sponsoring a sepsis table of materials at a conference I attended. I cannot overstate how impressed I am with the Sepsis Alliance and their goal to educate medical professionals and the general public about the importance of rapid recognition and treatment of sepsis. At my request, the Sepsis Alliance generously brought their Sepsis Awareness Month Colorado Bus Tour Event to our small rural hospital in NE CO and spent several hours educating both the medical professionals and the general public. The event was educational and the medical simulation staff was so knowledgeable and engaged – the staff is still talking about it. I have no doubt that the campaign and the Sepsis Alliance's objective to increase sepsis awareness will save many lives.
