Sepsis Alliance was invaluable to me after my Mom died with Septic Shock in 2010. I didn't know what Sepsis was and was stunned, utterly speechless, when the doctors at a Level 1 Trauma Center told us that Mom was going to die. We thought Mom had the flu; her only symptom was a shaking chill. Despite their best efforts, Mom went from walking into the ER and talking to being in an induced coma, on dialysis, having 8 IV lines and many other treatments, all in the same day. Mom died two days later. I reached out to Sepsis Alliance and the fine people there cared so much, listened to me and taught me a lot. I raise awareness of Sepsis whenever and wherever I can.

Sepsis Alliance informs and educates the public and healthcare professionals. It is a valuable resource for all in learning more about this devastating condition. I will always be grateful to Sepsis Alliance for all it does, in memory of my Mom, who died before our eyes with septic shock.

The information I've gained from Sepsis Alliance has been invaluable in terms of understanding all that my body went through and the after effects of Sepsis. S.A. saves lives by spreading awareness. They also provide info and support to those who have survived Sepsis!

We lost our son to Sepsis in 2014. The information and on-going support of the Sepsis Alliance has been invaluable. If the medical community knew more about Sepsis in 2014, our son might still be with us.

The Sepsis Alliance has gone above and beyond in helping us cope with losing our son to Sepsis. In addition, the information that they provide, we have been able to share with many family, friends and co-workers -- and in return, raise funds for their cause. They are responsive to personal requests and never cease to amaze me. The information on their website is great and helped us make serious decisions at a critical time in our lives.

My son was 14 when he was diagnosed with sepsis. It was the worst moments of our life and i was lucky to have this site for support and knowledge. Sepsis.org has been a place for me to browse though other stories and not feel so alone in this.

I am 4 years post sepsis shock. Without the sepsis alliance I would have had NO understanding of what had happened to me or how to fight for my care post sepsis. Four years ago when I left the hospital I was told to rest for a couple of weeks and I would be fine. I was not fine in two weeks. I went through 1 1/2 years not knowing what to think. Then I found Sepsis Alliance and quickly found, by reading the tales of other survivors, that I was not alone. The Sepsis Alliance has continued to educate me as new information, such as Post Sepsis Syndrome, came to light. It has provided documents I can use to educate my Drs and others. It has provided simple facts I can use to raise awareness on FB. Sepsis Alliance not only raises awareness, but equips others to raise awareness.

I am a septic shock survivor and my story has been published on the Sepsis Alliance website. The website has provided me with a lot of information and resources as I begin my recovery from Sepsis.

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!
