The Faces of Sepsis: Angie Lembo – survivor

Standard

“Sepsis is a life threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. Sepsis leads to shock, multiple organ failure and death especially if not recognized early and treated promptly.

Millions of people die of sepsis every year worldwide.” (Source: Sepsis Alliance)
