The Reason Why

This is the reason why I continue to raise awareness and hope for a cure. Myles is the son of a fellow Wisconsin preeclampsia survivor. He came into this world too soon at 25 weeks & 4 days and unfortunately passed away in his mommy's arms less than a month later. I am sharing the photo montage she put together in his memory with her permission. It's 18 minutes, so settle in with a tissue as you watch the journey of Myles.

Myles Lee Anderson

Myles has touched many lives and will not be forgotten. Until the day comes that mommies do not become ill with preeclampsia, I pledge my heart into this cause.

We read your blog posting and the MIST test can help. With 400,000 pregnancies affected each year by hypertension, and half of those may develop preeclampsia, you should know that the MIST test is a breakthrough in medical technology that you should be asking your doctor for at 16 – 22 weeks of pregnancy. This is a completely non-invasive test, similar to an electrocardiogram, which allows you and your doctor to know 2 – 3 months in advance of the onset of preeclampsia. Symptoms may not appear until 24 – 28 weeks or later in your pregnancy but with the MIST test you can be put on a treatment plan early on, potentially saving your pregnancy and your unborn baby’s life. Visit for more information and start asking your doctor for your MIST test today.

I just watched this little boy's video and am just heartbroken. I can not even fathom going through that struggle, but because of you, Denise, you have raised awareness and care about this.
And, you have helped achieve Myles purpose while he was here.
