Anne, I just found the Foundation. I live in Nashville, TN. I would be more than willing to help with planning in this area. It sounds like a really great event!! Inoticed one aswterisk next to Nashville, is there a local chapter already established here? I was unable to find it. Please send me further information on how I can be of assistance and who to contact in my area (bayabaya@comcast.net). Thanks!!!

I am in Dallas, but will do what I can to help in the Houston area. I have a sister there, so maybe I can go see her and help while I am there. Will have to do most of my helping from Dallas though. Please let me know what I can do.

Planning: If you have frequent flyers and are willing to donate them to the Preeclampsia Foundation for planning purposes--please let me know. I would like to come out to each of the cities that appear to be gearing up for a HIP MAMAS Ball and help kick off the planning. To arrange to have me or someone from the head office visit your city (for this or a fundraiser) contact me and we will plan it. I can do one city a month. Each city has to cover costs associated (we all sleep on couches, in corners, etc...just ask Catherine!) including frequent flyer miles, coach fares, guest rooms, etc...and we would like each time we head out for there to be a small (20+) fundraising event (to be earmarked for your expenses for HIP Mamas and to cover the cost of my trip. We will arrange the program and work with you to get this off the ground. Planning is beginning soon!!! Please, even if you are not near one of these locations, if you have event planning experience--jump in--we need you!!

Count me in for the Indiana location. I'm 20 minutes from Downtown and I'm a former secretary. Let me know what I can do.

I've already e-mailed Anne but YES, I am willing to help in Denver. I will talk to my husband about FF miles- we just used a bunch for our Europe trip but I'm sure we can spare the cost of at least one RT ticket.

Hi Anne,
I have $700 of free mileage with American Airlines. I am willing to donate it to you as long as you can come to Boston sometime!!
My husband, two year old and I just moved from Mexico to Cambridge, Massachusetts and we have a guestroom in our house right here in Harvard Square. It would be very interesting if you could give a speech at Harvard and since I'm getting my Master's degree in Psychology there right now, I have a few connections, let me know if you're interested,so much as staying with us and as talking at Harvard!

Hi Jennifer,
My husband and I just moved to Cambridge, Ma. from Mexico so please let me know if there's anything that I can do from here. I am currently getting my Masters Degree in Psychology at Harvard, and I could pull a few strings for Anne to give a speech here. Please let m eknow if there are any existing coordinators in Boston and whom to contact. Also I wante dto ask you what your experience with Hellp was and if you'r ethinking of a second pregnancy and if so, how would you handle medical care this time around? Thanks for answering my questions. I developed preeclampsia at 34 weeks and had an emergency c-section and after a week postpartum developed Hellp and was put back in the hospital for 2 weeks, very scary experience an deven though my husband and I would love to give a little brother/sister to Andres, I'm scared to death about getting pregnant again even though I live in Boston now(much more civilized than Mexico), if you kno wof any specialists in this area please recommend, thank you so much for your time. Andres was born on Oct 13th too!! He is a healthy 2 year old now.....Thank God!

What is wrong with me? I am just now reading this thread. I live 45 mins from Albany NY. Are there any new updates about this event? Is it still a go for Albany? I am going to do some emailing now. [:)]

Hugs,
Suz
