Cara H.E.L.L.P.s - Cara's Story
Cara H.EL.L.L.P.S is dedicated to honour Cara Kernohan who lost her life tragically and suddenly on October 5th, 2017 at the age of 29 years to Preeclampsia and H.E.L.L.P Syndrom at 35 weeks pregnant. Her miracle Daughter Blakely Cara is a survivor and turned 1 on October 1st, 2018.

Cara H.E.L.L.P.s is designed to educate through public awareness and help in fundraising for the research of this deadly disorder and medical conditions of Preeclampsia and H.E.L.L.P.  Research into Preeclampsia will reduce maternal and infant deaths.  Although medical professionals continue to advance their knowledge and research around these conditions, there is a lot unknown.

To date, Cara H.E.L.L.Ps has raised over $45,000 in support of transformational research for preeclampsia, through Calgary Health Trust. This research addresses early detection of complications and a new method of diagnosis that may promote individualized care models for mother and fetus very early in pregnancy.
