Reviews for Sepsis Alliance

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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!

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.

I can only give these people 5 stars, but they deserve so much more!
I am a Fast Moving, flesh eating form
Of sepsis called Necrotizing Faceitus.
It is as nasty as it sounds!
I had never really paid attention to the
Severity of this illness, let alone really
New anything about it.
That's where the education that these
People provide comes in.
There are so many victims you will not believe it.
I'm not an alarmest, or anything of the kind, it's just the facts of the numbers of people that are affected!
This IS a very important site!
You can find my story on their site, and my motivation for why I am asking you for your support

Really terrific organization that is working to raise awareness around Sepsis and to educate on the symptoms of this illness. Without this awareness many people will lose their lives.

I personally am grateful to all the information on their site around recovery. The information helped me navigate the 3 months of my recovery with more hope, joy and gratefulness.

Thank you, Sepsis Alliance.
