From the moment Congresswoman Louise Slaughter told the crowd “I feel like I knew Peggy” to when the last raffle winner was called, The Peggy Lillis Memorial Foundation’s 4th Annual FIGHT C. DIFF Gala was a colossal success. Since you weren’t able to join us, we wanted to share with you some highlights from the evening.
In just 2 years, the Peggy Lillis Memorial Foundation has rallied a national coalition to confront a disease that afflicts people in healthcare settings and claims the lives of more than 25,000 Americans each year. C. diff. has been cutting a steadily widening and lethal swath through the country for the last 40 years. But it doesn’t have to. How do we prevent C. diff.? And how do we identify it quickly in patients so it doesn’t kill? These are the questions the foundation has become a force in answering. Consumers and caregivers are using our materials every day to improve healthcare in the U.S. Our ability to shape health strategies and outcomes derives in large part from the support of people who care. We ask you to join the ranks of our supporters today with a tax-deductible contribution.
