Hi - my father just told me about a TV ad he saw from the March of Dimes. Apparently they showed a woman who had preeclampsia.

Did anyone see it?

I haven't, but I went to their site and did a search on pre and a lot came up (64 stories).

I emailed after I lossed Veronica, and march of dimes said that they do do preeclampsia research, since preeclampsia causes alot of babies to be born early.

Hmm, haven't seen the ad yet. Hope we get it around here and I can catch it. Anything that mentions PE is great. I know with doing my own research for my donations and how to split up, that I donate a smaller portion to the MOD simply because I feel they focus more on preterm labor and not PE. I do send them $ every year and I've thought about doing their walk this year too.

I caught the ad yesterday, but didn't hear them mention PE. Maybe I missed it- as I have a two year old running crazy most of the time. It was a nice ad, though.

Hum I didnt catch it either although we gave cable up to but I know I have donated to them and got one of their virtual memory bands in memory of Sebastian, hope they are mentioning pe though as it is amazing how many people have no clue about it or figure if they get it their Dr will just catch it for them in a routine exam.
