Mary's Story

What could have been a routine cardiac procedure became a lifelong health battle after a bacterial infection was misdiagnosed and incorrectly treated for too long. 

Mary Millard is an inspiration with her energy and passion to improve care for similar patients. Her story brings much needed attention to the devastating health effects of sepsis and a hospital acquired infection. 

Mary has given permission to share her experience with a bloodstream infection – and the impact earlier identification and treatment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa could have made.
