A GoFundMe account reached virtually $18,000 early Saturday for a Florida woman who lost her baby- and then her limbs and legs because of sepsis that started during her pregnancy.
Kayleigh Ferguson-Walker, 31, recently returned to services at her Broward County, Fla ., church for the first time since her terrible ordeal, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
“Today I’m just astonished to be here, to be able to talk, to see, to praise God, ” she told the congregation, the newspaper reported.
“Today I’m only astounded to be here, to be able to talk, to watch, to praise God.”
Ferguson-Walker’s story has helped raise awareness about sepsis- when the body’s blood-clotting function overreacts to infection — and also the plight of America’s amputees, a group that numbers nearly 2 million people, according to the Amputee Coalition of America.
Today Ferguson-Walker is still waiting to fully heal before she can be fitted for prosthetic arms and legs.
She told the Sun-Sentinel that she and husband Ramon have no immediate plans to sue anyone in matters relating to what happened.
Insurance has helped the couple and their 3-year-old child to some degree, but the family started the GoFundMe page for help in meeting other expenses.
