It is so scary that a country that prides itself on being so medically advanced has one more death due to preeclampsia-a terrible disease that isn't very well known about and talked about. I am so sad for the family and for the little girl who will grow up without her mommy.

How terribly sad. My heart goes out to her family and her for missing out on her child's life due to such a horrid disease.

So horrible. She was my age (25). It's just so hard to comprehend. I'm so sad for her baby and her husband.
