Faces of Sepsis

Have you been touched by sepsis? Whether you are a sepsis survivor, a caregiver, or you’ve lost someone to the condition, your experience can help spread sepsis awareness and provide support to those in need.

Faces of Sepsis™ stories allow those affected by sepsis to share their experiences of illness, treatment, recovery, and loss. The collected stories aim to capture the diversity of people who had sepsis—some describe a quick recovery while others cover the long-term effects of post-sepsis syndrome (PSS). Each experience is different, but all Faces of Sepsis stories play a vital role. They help those who have been impacted by sepsis learn that they are not alone.

Sepsis Alliance is grateful to everyone who has shared their experiences. These stories from around the world can help save lives and limbs.

Please note that the stories and opinions posted in the Faces of Sepsis are those solely of the authors and contributors of the stories. They do not reflect the opinions of Sepsis Alliance, its employees, contractors, or volunteers.
