Sepsis Alliance is a fantastic organization with the purely unselfish goals of raising awareness and educating about sepsis. As the mom of a sepsis survivor, I was glad to find such an organization existed. The Sepsis Alliance website is the perfect place to find important information or just community support.

I have been caring for patients with sepsis for 15 years. Too often over those years, I have to tell families their loved one is dying of something of which they've never heard. So many lives would be saved with increased awareness driving sepsis to be treated as a medical emergency.

I got involved with Sepsis Alliance in 2013. Sepsis Alliance lives by its mission to raise awareness of sepsis by educating patients, families, and healthcare professionals to treat sepsis as a medical emergency. With the alarming number of medical emergencies each year globally, healthcare policy reform, rising costs and limited understand of sepsis, being able to support and drive the advancement of Sepsis Alliance’s mission is essential to improving outcomes - Awareness is integral to defeating this disease.

I got involved with Sepsis Alliance in 2009. Sepsis Alliance lives by its mission to raise awareness of sepsis by educating patients, families, and healthcare professionals to treat sepsis as a medical emergency. Sepsis affects 1 of every 187 Americans every year and kills more than breast, lung and prostrate cancer combined. At least half of these deaths are due to lack of applying readily available therapies (antibiotics and fluids) and treating sepsis as a medical emergency. The natural history of sepsis can be changed in the next five years with therapies we currently have. Awareness is integral to defeating this disease.

This young foundation has dedicated itself to eradicating sepsis, the third highest killer around the world. I have been involved since its inception in spreading the word and we are up to 41% of the US public knowing what sepsis is. When we get to 100% and have implemented procedures in hospitals around the country, then I will rest assured that sepsis has been eliminated.

I have worked with patients and their families dealing with sepsis, it is a terrible illness. Sepsis kills more than 250,000 people each year and it can be preventable! Sepsis is a relatively unknown illness to most people, fewer than half of Americans know this term. I have seen the wonderful work that Sepsis Alliance has done to bring together survivors to share their stories and have a support system.

i first encountered Sepsis Alliance as a survivor. Sepsis Alliance had an enormous impact on my recovery by providing essential resources and support that were not available to me anywhere else. I then became involved with the organization as a volunteer and currently serve on the Board of Directors. Sepsis Alliance is a vital resource at the forefront of raising awareness about a common yet under-recognized killer.

Sepsis Alliance fills a unique position as a charity in that it is the only organization focused on increasing awareness of sepsis in the U.S. The organization has helped drive increases in awareness that will help save lives. The organization operates very efficiently with more thank 80% of its income going to programs. Having lost a good friend to sepsis, I have seen up close and personal the work that Sepsis Alliance does to help prevent sepsis and to also provide support to survivors of sepsis and to the families and loved ones of those who have been lost.
