  • Philip Cotton: “My reason for supporting the Sepsis Alliance is very personal.  I had heard of the term sepsis but had no real idea of its devastating consequences until I had the unfortunate experience of going into septic shock myself.  There is nothing like a near death experience to get your attention (my story can be found under “Faces of Sepsis” on the Alliance website).  Since joining Sepsis Alliance I have been very impressed with their work.  I identify with and strongly support their mission of raising awareness of sepsis.”
