Sepsis and Sepsis Alliance

Sepsis is the body's overwhelming and life-threatening response to infection, which can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death. Learn more about the symptoms of sepsis, which kills more than 258,000 Americans each year.

Sepsis is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. (after heart disease and cancer). There are more than 1.6 million cases of sepsis every year and survivors often face long-term effects post-sepsis, including amputations, anxiety, memory loss, chronic pain and fatigue, and more. Almost 60% of sepsis survivors experience worsened cognitive (mental) and/or physical function.

Sepsis Alliance is the nation's leading sepsis advocacy organization, dedicated to saving lives and reducing suffereing by raising awareness of sepsis as a medical emergency. A 501(c)(3) organization, Sepsis Alliance was founded by Dr. Carl Flatley after the sudden, unnecessary death of his daughter Erin to a disease he had never even heard of. Sepsis Alliance produces and distributes educational materials for patients, families, and health providers on sepsis prevention, early recognition, and treatment. The organization also offers support to patients, sepsis survivors, and family members through its website. The organization founded Sepsis Awareness Month in 2011, and works with partners to host community outreach events across North America. Since Sepsis Alliance began its mission, sepsis awareness has increased almost threefold, from 19% to 58%. For more information on Sepsis Alliance, a GuideStar Gold-rated charity, please visit
