Saving Grace ~ 2008
This evening, a gala event for the Preeclampsia Foundation is taking place in Washington, DC. Saving Grace: A Night of Hope is currently the largest fundraiser for the organization, and having attended the first Saving Grace (Minneapolist) in 2005 I can say it is truly not to be missed. One of the things that has been done each year is a memory quilt in honor of the babies that have been lost due to their mommies developing preeclampsia. CNN's Elizabeth Cohen is speaking tonight. The Volunteer of the Year award and the Hope Award along with four researchers receiving their grant awards will be presented. I cannot wait to hear all about the evening from the attendees, fellow preeclampsia survivors. To be in a room with so many others and everyone is there for a single cause...preeclampsia. Next year's gala is slated for Chi-town and you can be sure I'll be in attendance.
