My scariest time of my life 12-15-14 - I had a very bad UTI and had already gone to my primary care Doctor earlier the week before and given medications for treatment - of course i am recounting these memories from my husbands accounts because from Dec 13- 2014 I really have no recollection of the events I was that sick - Dec - 15 - 2014 I was found incoherent by my husband - talking out of my head he said I was arguing with him because he said he was going to call an ambulance - well he did because I passed out - the next 10 days I was in a medically induced coma with basically no urine output - my organs were failing - I was in heart failure - simply put I was dying - I had severe septic shock - the Doctors were not telling my family much except that my chance for making it through this was 20 % - well all I can say is the wonderful staff of Doctors at Wellstar Cobb Hospitajl left no stone unturned - you have like a six hour window and praise God I hit it with an inch of my life - a lot happened to much to explain here while I was under ( the dreams , the nightmares , the waking up to finding out what had happened - I thought I had wreaked my car - I had no clue - I had to learn to walk again - to eat - and all I wanted to do was go home but I had and still have memory issues - fatigue - muscle soreness - PTSD - heart problems - kidney problems - liver issues - I fall all the time - I got MRSA - lets just say the new me is a complete work in progress - Sepsis Alliance has helped me so very much with there vast knowledge and message boards and being able to talk with people that have experenced the very things I went through - knowledge is power and all I can say is please support this very important Nonprofit - it will save life's and it very well may be your own - I am blessed by the Lord to still be here - and my heart hurts for some that never made it - ones that survived but lost limbs - I will never understand why I was saved and others were not but I do know that the old me ( that very sick girl died that day ) and the new me is still learning and with Gods grace I can call myself a suviver !! Today I am a work in progress and none of it could have been done without Sepsis Alliance - please find a way to support them please !! Never take for granted your time on this earth - I am a caregiver for my father who is 84 and suffered a stroke and can not walk he lives with us - I am a mother with 2 beautiful Sons and I am a grandmother to 3 gorgeous grandsons and last but not least I am a wife - a partner - I am married to my best friend without him I don't know where I would be - thank god for my family- my best friend and my daughter-in law they are my rock

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!

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.

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.

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.

My story is very simple I have been diagnosed with sepsis placed on the count of dr. Mistakes I now have kidney problems due to the fact that one doctor did not want to be fine for me being in the hospital twice within 30 days for sepsis and gave me 30 days to bactrim 10 - 14 days is to match those how was on it for 16 days and now I have kidney problems and I have to see a nephrologist been my experience that the doctors from Gastonia North Carolina or incompetent incapable and hide the fact that they make mistakes the cover for one another and they're not worth seeing and they plain don't care if you die as long as it doesn't cause somebody
