  1. Hi Jennifer,

    I was very moved by your art in the NPR article, and I’m happy to have found your website. I lost my husband of 30 years to sepsis just last December. It was sudden and unexpected. Although I tried very hard not to blame anyone, I thought that there must have been something more that could have been done. I now understand what a serious and complicated condition this is, and I feel sorrow and sympathy for you and anyone else who has lost a loved one to it. You have done all of us a real service in bringing attention to it and conveying through your art the corresponding emotional complexity of survivors. I thank you.

    Wendy

    1. Wendy, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. Sepsis seems to strike quickly and fiercely. My hear is heavy for what you and your husband had to experience as it is so so difficult to watch a loved one die from sepsis. I appreciate you taking the time to visit my site and respond. Please know you are both in my thoughts. -Jennifer

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks for your openness in sharing your story. Millions have passed, many not realizing they had sepsis. I wanted to pass-on a possible treatment, that supposedly has had incredible results in animal studies. It is the use of Mesenchymal Cells, but not all MSC’s are the same. Ocata Theraputics may have an answer, it is still a little early as they haven’t published their results, but these cells have been shown to kill sepsis on contact in other trials. you might want to take a look : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gKcAQB5FE0 Thanks Again, Mark

    1. Mark, It is so true that millions have died never realizing they had sepsis. Education is key. Continued research is necessary. -Jennifer

  3. Dear Jennifer

    I too was touched by the stories on NPR about the loss of your father. We lost our son Mack to sepsis just short of his 9th birthday nearly 2 and a half years ago. http://mackbrady.com Your retelling and turning to art is similar to our own journey. I am glad that Penn State GV is hosting your work and would love to meet at some point. (We are Penn State faculty and we have a soccer fund at PSU in memory of Mack.)

    Thank you again for sharing. May light perpetual shine upon your father.

    Yours

    Cb

    1. Cb, thank you for your loving thoughts. I am so sorry to read about your son. The art exhibit at Penn State GV has been healing. It is also a beautiful art gallery. My husband is a Penn State alumni. We will keep your dear son close in our hearts. Best, Jennifer
