“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. Sepsis remains the primary cause of death from infection despite advances in modern medicine, including vaccines, antibiotics and acute care. Millions of people die of sepsis every year worldwide.” (Source: Sepsis Alliance)
I met Angie Lembo on Twitter a couple of weeks ago. She shared the link to her testimony as a Sepsis survivor.
