Please help us prevent infant death from vasa previa
The weekend of October 4-5, 2008, the International Vasa Previa Foundation will commemorate the 7th anniversary of Sophie's birth by sponsoring a worldwide 5K walk (3.125 miles) in cities around the world.
Sophie's Walk is the most important fundraising event that the IVPF sponsors each year. The proceeds go towards research and education to prevent vasa previa deaths. Visit SophiesWalk. org/walk for more information about Sophie's Walk.
The International Vasa Previa Foundation (IVPF), is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) all volunteer charitable organization founded by parents who've experienced this devastating condition.
Vasa previa is a condition that if undiagnosed, has an infant death rate as high as 95%. When diagnosed prenatally via transvaginal color Doppler ultrasound, the survival rate is almost 100%. Research has proven that infant death from vasa previa is an avoidable tragedy. This is one tragedy we CAN do something about! Awareness is so important.
If you haven't registered yet, please do so right away (register to walk)! It only takes an hour to walk 5k. If you have registered, many thanks.
If you are unable to walk with us, a donation would be greatly appreciated.
