Sepsis, sometimes called blood poisoning, is the body's deadly response to infection. It is a serious illness that affects more than 1.6 million people in the US every year.  In fact, every two minutes someone in the United States dies of sepsis. And although most people don't know it, sepsis is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. (after heart disease and cancer). Thanks to the Sepsis Alliance, a charitable organization run by a team of dedicated laypeople and healthcare professionals who who work behind the scenes is to raise sepsis awareness so it can be prevented, detected, and treated early, we were able to connect with Doreen Bettencourt, a young woman who survived sepsis.  On today's episode, Doreen will share her story.  Please join us.
