Review for Preeclampsia Foundation, Melbourne, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After developing HELLP Syndrome at 34 weeks with my first baby, I went looking for answers. And I found the Preeclampsia Foundation. That was in 2003, and today I remain committed to the only organization in the US that is strictly focused on preeclampsia. I was able to seek support from others and know that I was not alone. I was able to have some questions answered and through other's experiences learn more about preeclampsia and what I should ask or consider for another pregnancy. I am not sure how I would have made it through my second pregnancy without the support I receieved from other members of the Preeclampsia Foundation. They helped me in ways that not even my family could assist in. To have positive stories and encouragement that I could indeed get through the pregnancy, it was priceless.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been participating in the Preeclampsia Foundation's awareness walks since they began in 2005. The events have grown in number, participants, and fundraising dollars over the years. And to see the walk website unveiled this year was exciting.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the women who I have met. We come from all walks of life, but share a common bond called preeclampsia. My experiences have led me to meet people I would have never otherwise met and I am thankful for that.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very passionate and excited about the efforts the organization is making.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

fund someone to find a cure & cause for preeclampsia. The organization could touch so many more lives with even $100,000. From awareness events & campaigns to making more resources available for professionals to being able to assist families affected.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010
