Sepsis is the body's overwhelming and life-threatening response to infection which can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death. Learn more about the symptoms of sepsis, which kills 258,000 Americans each year.
Welcome to the Gress’ 16th Annual Single Malt Scotch Tasting!
The event is January 28th, 2017 at 7pm.
As many of you know, I am on the board of directors for a national organization, Sepsis Alliance. Our mission is to save lives and reduce suffering by raising sepsis as a medical emergency. We are making headway in our efforts and more than 1/2 of Americans have heard of sepsis, but we have A LONG way to go. The treatment is very simple, recognize the symptoms and get help immediately – ask “IS IT SEPSIS?” Treatment consists of IV antibiotics and Fluids – of course any other meds that is needed to support you.
Did you know more than people die of Sepsis than Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer and AIDS combined? More than 250,000 people die each year in the US from Sepsis. Knowing the signs and symptoms could save you or your loved one’s life.
We are hoping you will consider a donation to Sepsis Alliance will help continue raising awareness. For donations $25 or more, you will receive a scotch tasting glass or wine glass.
Even if you are unable to join us for this annual event, I hope you would consider making a donation as well.
Last time we did this, we raised over $2,000!
Thank you for your generosity!
