Welcome to the Tedy's Team fundraising website.
In February of 2017 I was admitted to the hospital with severe post partum pre-eclampsia. My blood pressure was 220/130. I could have had a stroke, seizure, or worse. I was on IV magnesium for 24 hours as well as IV lasick, and high blood pressure meds. I was so swollen that once hospitalized, I lost 7 liters of fluid. I could have had heart damage. Thankful, I survived without any permanent physical damage. Since I developed preeclampsia postpartum, Charlotte was fine. I was on high blood pressure medication for 6 weeks.
Tedy's Team raises awareness for stroke, something that could have happened to me and has happened to many other new mothers. If you know me, you know running is my thing, and how much my family and I love Falmouth, MA.
The mission of Tedy's Team is to raise awareness for stroke and heart disease while supporting survivors on their journey, giving them a means for a comeback!
Tedy's Team was originally founded in 2005, when Tedy Bruschi, former linebacker for the New England Patriots suffered a stroke shortly after winning his 3rd Super Bowl and just days after returning from his first Pro Bowl.
The Boston Athletic Association and the NBFRR have allowed us to utilize their platforms to elevate the awarenss of the warning signs of stroke, which are best remembered by using the acronym BE FAST, which stands for:
Speech Difficulties - and if you notice any of those warning signs, it's...
