On September 28, 2012 native San Antonian Michelle Moon suffered an Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE). Her life was unexpectedly threatened and turned upside down during what should have been one of the most joyous times of her young family’s life; the delivery of their second baby girl. The doctor’s gave Michelle a dismal 15% chance of surviving. However, with excellent and aggressive care at North Central Baptist Hospital she did survive. Shortly after returning home Michelle reached out to the AFE Foundation which provided her with the information she needed as well as connected her to other young mothers and families who had also suffered an AFE. Michelle and her husband, Andy, knew they wanted to do something to honor and recognize what had happened by helping others. All proceeds from this fantastic event will fund research being conducted by Baylor College of Medicine in conjunction with the Amniotic Fluid Embolism Foundation’s vision to better understand amniotic fluid embolisms and seek prevention to reduce maternal and fetal death globally.
