UCLA Receives $46 Thousand Check for Groundbreaking Research on Debilitating Pregnancy Disease
Date:9/17/2012

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The HER (Hyperemesis Education & Research) Foundation proudly presented a check for more than $46 thousand to Dr. Marlena Fejzo, geneticist, of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA on Friday, September 14th. The donation will fund continued groundbreaking research on a relatively unknown, debilitating pregnancy condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum, or HG. The disease rarely makes headlines, yet it afflicts hundreds of thousands of pregnant women around the globe annually, leaving them severely malnourished and dehydrated due to relentless nausea and vomiting that lands many in the hospital, and sometimes results in death if left untreated.

According to Ann Marie King, Co-Founder of the HER Foundation, "Friday's check ceremony would not be possible without the generous donations of those who have visited our website over the years in desperate need of answers and pledged their hard earned money in hope of finding a cure for HG." King, who also suffered from a severe case of HG, said "too many women with HG suffer in silence as their bodies fail them during one of the most important and what should be one of the happiest times of their lives, leaving them feeling forgotten or misunderstood. Often it is a husband or family member who stumbles upon the HER Foundation's website as their loved one lays in bed next to them too ill and weak to help themselves."

Dr. Marlena Fejzo, who has been heading up the HG research at UCLA said, "I am extremely grateful to the HER Foundation for supporting HG research. Every dollar brings us one step closer to finding a cause and cure for this devastating pregnancy disease.  In addition to the continued support of the HER foundation, 1,800 women have generously donated their time to participate in the study."
