As most of you know, I lost my Father - Aidan Carroll to a horrible disease called Sepsis on August 17th last year after a prolonged illness. Sepsis seems such a simple illness yet it’s totally misunderstood. Sepsis is the body’s overwhelming and life-threatening response to infection that can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and in many cases death. It’s your body’s over active and toxic response to an infection. Sepsis affects more than 750,000 Americans each year and kills more than 215,000 each year.
I wanted to do something to help raise awareness of this horrible disease and since Sepsis is relatively low profile, I thought what better than to combine with the wonderful organization that is Concern Worldwide. My Dad loved New York City and his spirit will be running with me through those streets on Sunday, November 4.
For anyone who isn`t already familiar, Concern Worldwide helps the world’s extreme poor and most vulnerable recover from disaster, fight malnutrition and deadly diseases, strengthen their resilience to climate extremes, and more. I know my Dad would approve and he`d be so proud. I couldn`t of got through the past year without all my great friends and support and I`m coming to the well once more!
I aim to raise $3,000 for this wonderful charity as a tribute to my Dad`s memory and in addition, we`ll make a contribution to Sepsis awareness both here in New York and back in Ireland. Please help me support two worthy causes. I can`t tell you all what this means to me and I hope you can all help in a little way!
