We want to be brave and start a conversation that matters about death and serious illness from Sepsis. Sepsis can start from any infection and is a very silent killer. It is so heartbreaking because as the person infected gets much sicker the person gets quieter. It is the greatest killer of children in the world and it kills over 270,000 Americans every year.
For us, it wrecked our lives and the lives of our families. Rory Staunton died from something we knew nothing about. We want everyone to know this killer, we want every doctor and nurse to recognize it, we want all governments to declare it Public Health Enemy #1. We want this to happen because this is the RIGHT thing to do. This month you will hear much about COVID-19 and sepsis. Yes, sepsis plays its part there also, Sepsis kills.
