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.”
“Through the HER Foundation, we were able to connect with many families who had experienced the debilitating condition before and find doctors that were experienced in treating it. Brynn also found huge comfort in sharing her experiences with other women who were going through HG at the same time. I honestly don’t know how we would have gotten through the pregnancy without the help of The HER Foundation,” said Quick.
“Behind every strong man you will find a strong woman and we know Brynn went through some very difficult months with HG. We are so proud of both of them and so appreciative of their efforts to raise awareness,” said Ann Marie King, HER Foundation Co-Founder. If you are interested, donate to Grant Quick’s Ironman Challenge to help raise awareness and help the HER Foundation.
