lisa-bartlett-portraitLisa Bartlett (Davis) first contacted Sepsis Alliance in 2013 after the tragic death of her 40-year-old husband, Jeff Davis, in 2012. Sepsis Alliance was the first page that popped up in a Google search on sepsis. Lisa instantly felt connected and strongly desired to give back to Sepsis Alliance. To that end, 2013 was the first year for the Annual in Loving Memory of Jeffrey Ray Davis 5K Run/Walk for Sepsis Awareness. This year, the 3rd Annual in Loving Memory of Jeffrey Ray Davis 5K Run/Walk for Sepsis Awareness will be held July 23 in Colorado Springs, CO. University of Colorado Health is a proud local sponsor of the event this year. Over 3 years, Lisa has raised over $10,000 for Sepsis Alliance.

In addition to the 5K, Lisa has been a Sepsis Ambassador for 2 years, and she is a monthly Sepsis Circle of Friends contributor. She is now a proud Army wife and vows to continue the Annual 5K no matter where the Army takes her. She knows Jeff would be so proud of her testimony and how she’s turned his tragic death from sepsis into a positive one by raising funds for Sepsis Alliance and saving lives by suspecting sepsis first!
