the peri's in your area. I was trying to find your post on this but was not able to. Could you perhaps share the letter you sent them?
I am hoping to contact some in my area.

Thanks!

Is this a letter introducing yourself and the PF? We are trying to get a letter together for WI for members to send out explaining the PF, and that we as local members would be willing to be contacts and/or supports. We want to send them to our local OB's and hospitals.

HI Ladies...........hopes this helps. I want to add that the peri's I sent this to are major players in the research of PE. One of the docs, who actually sent me a $50 check, is part of the PF..not sure if he is a board member or what. I also am a patient of one of the peri's..they really responded well to my email and to offerings to be a big part of the PF. I also got alot of the info from the main pages of the PF.

Hello:
>
I am a member, and the Connecticut State Coordinator, of the
Preeclampsia Foundation which is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to funding research, raising public awareness, and providing support and education for those whose lives have been touched by preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. As you well know, preeclampsia is a disorder that occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period and affects both the mother and the unborn baby. Affecting at least 5-8% of all pregnancies. Preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are a leading global cause of maternal and infant illness and death. By conservative estimates, these disorders are responsible for 76,000 deaths each year.
>
I suffered from a sudden onset of eclampisa and HELLP Syndrome in
1995 at 26 weeks gestation. While I survived, my son did not. This foundation is very near and dear to my heart.
>
On Saturday, May 7, 2005 the Preeclampsia Foundation will host our
2005 Inaugural Walk-a-Thon in over 11 states across the United States and reach as far as the United Kingdom. Due to the overwhelming planning that has gone into the walk, we are not hosting a walk in Connecticut this year, but Connecticut is teaming up with the Philadelphia, PA coordinator and members. Nevertheless, we could still use your support!
>
Our walk registration fee is a mere $15 which includes a 2005
Preeclampsia Foundation t-shirt. While we know not everyone is able
to join us for the walk, we ask that you consider making a donation to help fund this great organization. All proceeds go directly to the foundation. We are on the verge of great things: brochure distribution, annual conventions, attending state symposiums, and overall getting the word out.
>
If you are interested in supporting our foundation, donations can be
made out to the Preeclampisa Foundation and sent to the address
below. If you are interestd in walking with us, I will be happy to send you the forms. I would also like to take this opportunity to reach out to you as the CT Coordinator for the Preeclampsia Foundation, I hope that in the near future we can count on you to help get the word out in regards to preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.

Thank you for your time..and keep you eye out for our soon-to-be
Released brochures and a 2006 Connecticut PF walk!!

to Kris and all of you...
what wonderful work! I sent personal letters to friends and family, and may take parts of that, along with parts of what I read from you to create something to share with Dr.s in my area. Thanks for the inspiration.
