My 15 year old daughter passed away from Sepsis in July, 2013. Before this, I had never heard of Sepsis. After doing searches on-line, I came across Sepsis Alliance and read everything on their website. I've donated in honor of my daughter's memory because I know that they are putting funds to good use by raising awareness with the medical community and the public. More people need to know about this deadly disease since it takes more lives per year than most illnesses. Knowing the signs and symptoms as well as saying the word out loud to personal physicians may save loved ones. I'm so thankful for everything that this organization is doing and I am looking forward to participating in future fund raising events.

I have been donating to Sepsis Alliance for several years, ever since I learned about the mission of this nonprofit: to educate medical professionals and the public about sepsis, its prevention and treatment, and to support the victims of sepsis and their families. Sepsis is a major cause of death in this country, and, with some education about treatment, is preventable. This nonprofit runs on the passion to save lives. Their budget is minimal, and the funds raised are used entirely to serve their cause.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Sepsis Alliance requires significantly more funding to actualize its goals: national awareness and engagement of the medical community and legal system. Increased funding by foundations, grants, and the NIH is necessary to provide widespread education and institutionalize immediate recognition and treatment of sepsis.

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.

My Uncle passed away years ago at a young age from what now is known as Sepsis. At the time, this awful condition was not widely known and I can't help but feel that if the Sepsis Alliance had been in place back then spreading awareness, that we may have been able to have him diagnosed and treated sooner and not lost him.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep up the good work!

The Board of the Sepsis Alliance works tirelessly to provide life saving information and awareness. The Sepsis Alliance was the only place we could turn to after our daughter survived sepsis. The medical community needs greater information to save lives and the public also needs to be made aware as to the signs of symptoms and to immediately seek urgent care/

My daughter is a sepsis survivor. TheSepsis Alliance is the only organization bringing awareness to the disease and providing support to survivors. I hope the Alliance will receive enormous recognition so that anyone stricken with sepsis will recognize the signs and symptoms of this deadly disease and will not be misdiagnosed.
