Reasons we volunteer:

1. We watched Shelly suffer from PE and HELLP for one week before losing her battle

2. We want to raise awareness with the hopes of preventing another family from "walking in our shoes"

3. We want to raise the needed funds to find a prevention/cure so our other daughter and our granddaughter won't have to worry about this illness

4. We get a great sense of comfort when someone contacts us to thank us for our efforts to raise awareness, telling us their story and how our efforts may have had a part in saving a friend or loved one.

Because everytime I see a new memeber that has lost a child to this **** disease it enrages me. This disease is not fair at all and we all diserve to be holding the babies that were ripped from our lives.

I volunteer because:
1. I don't want others to go thru the emotional trauma & numbness I went thru when I wasn't prepared for a life threatening condition and early delivery.

2. I want women to be educated and in charge of their own health and not be ignored by the medical profession..to help save their and their childrens lives.

3. I want to raise awareness so that PRE-E will get the attention and fundraising of other diseases like cancer. Our babies lives are worth as much as everyone else. I want to to find a treatment and cure.

4. I want people to have a better understanding of premature infants and the struggles they and their parents have.

Help me fill in the gap here. I have a few reasons, what are yours?

1) because I had PE and HELLP and I want to see it Wiped OUT
2) because I want to help prevent my kids from having to deal with it
3) I love to help people, whether it's through providing information, talking about experiences and sharing, touching a life through outreach, I love it
4) I don't work and this is fun to keep my skills honed, work at my own pace but keep up with new innovations and technological advances to help bring about change
5) to learn... learn as much as I possibly can about PE and HELLP and How I, just one person, can make BIG strides in helping to raise awareness and bring attention to a much needed cause

I am curious, what makes others of you volunteer?

I enjoy talking to other members
I love to crochet items I know will be appreciated
I like being busy
Someone should be doing it, why not me?

For all the volunteers we have in this Foundation, I want to THANK YOU for the job you do! You put in many hours, lots of heartfelt emotion, donate hard earned money to help make life that much better for the next woman/child. Thank You! You are appreciated!
