My sister, Erin, died from sepsis on April 30th 2002. She developed sepsis after having a simple, outpatient procedure! At the time of her death, I had never heard the word sepsis before. A huge part of me died with her that day and my life has never been the same! She passed away 4 months before my wedding and 2 weeks before my birthday. Erin was young, just 23 years old. She was pretty, smart, fun, loving, kind and loyal. Her zest for life was contagious and she is missed everyday by so many of us who loved her! My father, Carl Flatley, founded the Sepsis Alliance shortly after her death and I marvel at what it has become today! I am so proud to be a part of this great organization that is truly saving lives! Awareness of sepsis is key in reducing the death rate from this equal opportunity killer! Suspect Sepsis, Save Lives and Limbs!!
