ERIN'S CAMPAIGN FOR KIDS
Super excited that the KY Family Career and Community Leaders of America is considering Sepsis awareness as their 2017-2018 community service project. This would include over 150 chapters and 4500 students from all across the state who would be raising money and awareness of Sepsis, especially in children.
Sepsis Alliance is a charitable organization run by a team of dedicated laypeople and healthcare professionals who share a strong commitment to battling sepsis. The organization was founded in 2007, by Dr. Carl Flatley, whose daughter Erin died of sepsis when she was 23 years old.
Sepsis Alliance was created to raise sepsis awareness among both the general public and healthcare professionals. Sepsis awareness can and does save lives, yet only 55% of American adults have ever heard the word. Sepsis Alliance also gives a voice to the millions of people who have been touched by sepsis – to the survivors, and the friends and family members of those who have survived or who have died. Survivors and those left behind often feel as if they are alone.
