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.

Thanks to my wife Sarah Raikes for pushing for Sepsis Alliance to try and get this approved. Without her support I would be a lot less of a survivor.

I have had ARDS, H1N1, Bi laterial Pneumonia, Sepsis and Septic Shock in 2011. I was in the hospital system 6 months. In 2014 I had surgery that went wrong and once again woke up in another hospital in another state just as I did in 2011. This is so hard and I am NOT the person I once was. I CAN't get better!!!! I need help too!!!
