Tory Pereira- Sepsis Survivor
I am so blessed to be given the opportunity of a lifetime!
Ever since I was in my recovery I started doing my research on sepsis, and I have been hoping a company would create an early diagnostic test to detect sepsis early. I knew this machine would save so many beautiful lives!
In August 2017 I received the best email of my life! Yasmine, the marketing intern at Abionic, a company based out of Switzerland, reached out to me and told me she read my blog and was very inspired! She then told me her company works in the field of In Vitro Diagnostics. The beautiful news, was that based on their technology, they have developed a diagnostic test to detect sepsis early than ever! They have already convinced some of the best doctors to support them and have been able to identify sepsis development up to 24 hours before first clinical symptoms! Such a miracle! She asked if I wanted to be apart of their project, which consisted of creating a little movie sharing the product but they wanted it to be powerful and authentic, and asked if I could fly out to Switzerland to share my testimony! What a dream come true!!!
I flew to Switzerland on December 10th, 2017 and it was the most magical trip of my life! I got to meet and connect with Yasmine and Susanne from Abionic, meet their team, visit the laboratory where the scientists do ALL of their sepsis research! I was seriously in heaven! I also got to meet two other beautiful sepsis survivors and we shared our stories, struggles with “life after sepsis” and our love for life!
God is seriously so amazing! I never would have thought laying in that hospital bed fighting for my life, would have led to such an incredible opportunity to meet 4 beautiful souls and connect with them on a level that no one could understand. We laughed, smiled, cried, cried a lot and hugged each other endlessly! The love I have for these 4 people I will cherish forever and they will always hold a special place in my heart! I hope everyone has an awesome week and are staying healthy with this crazy cold weather, God bless!
Peace & Love,
