This time of year, people of all ages make wishes. But for families impacted by preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome, eclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, those wishes are often ones that cannot be granted: a mother's hug; a baby in their arms; the sound of their children's laughter as they run free and healthy.
Our wish, this year and every year, is for a world where preeclampsia no longer threatens the lives of mothers and babies.
This giving season, help us continue to make that wish a reality through an annual gift to the Preeclampsia Foundation at www.preeclampsia.org/donate.
Then, share your wish for this season by posting on our Facebook event wall and sharing with your social media community! We want to hear your voice this season, as we unite our wishes and our dreams for moms and their babies around the world. Look throughout the month for the wishes we will share.
