Preeclampsia is a deadly disease of pregnancy and beyond, that not only effects a woman while she is pregnant, but doubles her risk of stroke and heart disease, and quadruples her risk of high blood pressure after pregnancy. Preeclampsia is the leading cause (20%) of premature births, and is on the rise. 76,000 women and 500,000 babies die each year from Preeclampsia. Preeclampsia has tried to take my life twice, and the lives of my children. I feel so lucky to have survived this terrible disease, even though it has done irreversible damage to my body. I just want to make sure that future women don't have to go through what I went through. Help us raise money for research and education, and save lives of mothers and babies!
