Video of the First Annual HG Awareness Day!

A special thanks from the HER Foundation founders....

We want to thank you for the incredible efforts by HG women and their families around the globe for a truly amazing First Annual HG World Awareness Day! The day was a GREAT success thanks to you! The support we received from women around the globe and their efforts touched our hearts and made our determination even stronger for finding an answer to why HG happens and finding a cure.  The notes we have received from women and their families about how the HelpHER.org website helped them get through their pregnancies truly means a lot to us and when we started the website over 8 years ago, we knew women needed a place to find support and know they were not alone in their suffering. We are so glad you found some comfort and support during your pregnancies.

We will keep fighting for all of you and your babies and will not stop until we have answers of why HG occurs and what can be done. All of you have truly inspired us! When we speak with media, government officials, doctors, nurses, etc. we feel we have all of you standing with us. Together you have made the H.E.R. Foundation "The Voice of HG" so thank you very much! Just because May 15, 2012 is over does not mean our efforts stop. 

We had 55 countries visit our website on May 15th alone and since January 2012, 147 countries have come to our site seeking help and understanding. HG is truly a worldwide women's health issue and the HER Foundation will continue to lead the way by working with the government, the medical community and with many women's healthcare advocate groups around the world. Remember, you are not alone and HER is always here to help.

Sincerely,
Ann Marie King, Jeremy King & Kimber MacGibbon
