Preeclampsia Foundation Garners Prestigious CINE Golden Eagle Award

Last Updated on Monday, May 04, 2009

Minneapolis, Minn - The Preeclampsia Foundation announced today that If Only We Knew ... The Quest to Conquer Preeclampsia, a documentary produced by Etheridge & Company, has been awarded the prestigious CINE Golden Eagle Award. The ceremony took place April 29, 2009, at an honorary in Washington, DC. The CINE awards distinguish excellence in professional and independent works, and are symbols of the highest production standards in film and television.

Founded in 1957, CINE is dedicated to discovering, rewarding, educating and supporting established and emerging talent in film and video. Among the great talents whose first major awards include the CINE Golden Eagle are directors Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard and documentary maker Kens Burns.

Etheridge & Company (www.etheridgeandco.com) is an Atlanta-based creative firm that focuses on social responsibility and excels in a wide range of media and documentary work on children and family concerns.

If Only We Knew ... The Quest To Conquer Preeclampsia debuted last fall in Washington, D.C. at Saving Grace - A Night of Hope, the annual fundraising gala for the Preeclampsia Foundation.

The documentary outlines the symptoms of preeclampsia including high blood pressure, swelling, sudden weight gain, headaches and vision changes. Women and their loved ones recount their own experiences with too often dismissed worrisome signs and the feelings of hopelessness and helplessness associated with making life-altering decisions. Whether they are parents who have lost a child or those who have a child with life-long disabilities - or a husband who has almost lost his wife, the survivors’ compelling stories speak volumes about this deadly disorder.

Preeclampsia is a condition most people do not know about. Noted medical experts in the field put the science in everyday terms: Preeclampsia is a rapidly progressive disorder that occurs during pregnancy and the postpartum period. It affects both the mother and the unborn baby.

The Preeclampsia Foundation helps fund research and raise awareness to prevent death and disability of mothers and babies. Its mission is to eliminate delays in diagnosis, apply and develop best practices, and support families whose lives have been touched by preeclampsia, HELLP Syndrome and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.

Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, the MDRT Foundation, and the Professional Tarpon Tournament Series provided underwriting for the production of this documentary.
