Download the plane, dedicate your flight, and Fly to Fight Sepsis!
Why Do We Fly To Fight Sepsis?
The #Fly2FightSepsis campaign was inspired by Rory Staunton, who longed to fly from the moment he could walk and whose life was taken far too early by sepsis. With a shared goal of educating the public about sepsis, the Rory Staunton Foundation and Roche Diagnostics have partnered to elevate the volume of the conversation about this stealthy killer. It is important that the public, government and the clinical community focus resources to fight sepsis. Millions of people die of sepsis when 80% of sepsis deaths are preventable.
The paper plane is a symbol of hope and awareness. #Fly2FightSepsis aims to drive conversation about this preventable, treatable condition that is the largest killer
of children in the world!
