The HER Foundation has been overwhelmed with the response we have received for the 2nd Annual HG Awareness Day (May 15th) evidenced by 400% more visitors to the HER website the past week, as well as the most widespread reach ever on Facebook and Twitter.
We received great support from some of our partners and supporters. We’re grateful to HG moms across the globe who shared powerful personal stories in social media today, and to all who took action to educate and advocate.
The HER Foundation and Ashli Foshee McCall are like old friends — they go way back and have been working together to help HG women around the globe. For many years, Ashli has donated her books to the HER Foundation to help us raise money for awareness, education and research. Ashli has just released a new book, “The Chronicles of Nausea.” A diary of her successful battle with HG in her fourth and most difficult pregnancy, “Chronicles” is an inspiring “must read” for all women coping with the disease. The HER Foundation thanks Ashli for her continued support for HG women and the HER Foundation. We recently asked her a few questions about HG and her books.

Meet Lake Placid Ironman competitor Grant Quick. He has seen first hand what HG does to a woman because his wife, Brynn, has suffered a great deal from HG this year. Brynn is due to give birth to their son by the end of the month and Grant wants to do what he can to raise awareness and funds for The HER Foundation. “The HER Foundation was a huge support to us when Brynn was going through the worst of Hyperemesis Gravidarum.”
