Final Week to Get Registered or Donate!

Please go to events page to register for this years event!!

Despite COVID-19, the Cara HELLPs community will VIRTUALLY rally forth in honour of Cara with the same friendly competition!

Cara HELLPs is excited to announce the recent partnership with Preeclampsia Foundation Canada.

Vision Grant Award Program

According to the World Health Organization, preeclampsia is one of the least funded areas of research, especially when considered against Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs). Preeclampsia Foundation Canada’s Vision Grant Program funds medical research pertaining to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.

 

Preeclampsia Foundation Canada, through the generous support of our donors, corporate partnerships, and community events will award up to two medical research Vision Grants to study preeclampsia and related hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. One of the awards will specifically fund HELLP syndrome research thanks to the generous support from Cara HELLPs research fund recently established at Preeclampsia Foundation Canada.

 

It is our hope that successful projects will, in turn, garner additional research support from major funding organizations, earn scientific merit at important meetings, and inspire young investigators to commit their life’s work to this complex field of study.

I wanted to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who came out to support Cara HELLPs 1st Annual Preeclampsia Awareness 5km walk/run Fundraiser on October 6, 2018. We had 140 registrants and 125 that participated. We raised roughly $15,000.

 

I am so touched by the outpour of support and love and the emotions running high, but I have had tears of happiness instead of grief! I want to thank all that showed their support by registering and participating in this event, all the amazing volunteers for their time and use of equipment, some of whom I have only met for the first time who offered their help, all the sponsors for donating great prizes, and the many, many donations that have been flooding in! This would not be possible with out the many villages at our side, so thank you once again for all for your ongoing love & support. What really hit me this past weekend is that we are making a difference and have already saved lives.

 

I will continue to advocate in the education and awareness of this deadly disorder Preeclampsia and HELLP Syndrome!

Much gratitude! ❤️

Our goal is intended to educate through public awareness and help in fundraising for the research of this deadly disorder and medical conditions of Preeclampsia and HELLP Research into preeclampsia will help reduce maternal and infant deaths.

 

Although medical professionals continue to advance their knowledge and research around these conditions, there is still a lot unknown. Currently the Calgary Maternal Fetal Medicine Centre (EFW Seton location) is conducting a pilot study  (The Enhanced First Trimester Screen study (eFTS) with the goal of introducing a preeclampsia screening and prevention program in Calgary (along with other cities in Canada).

 

Our funding goal over time to HELLP with funding this research is $100,000.

 

We greatly appreciate your donations to this cause and your love and support will most definitely make a difference to myself and my family as we continue to maneuver our way through this very difficult journey!
