Heather Clark

Our father, Paul Clark, spent six months hospitalized last year as he battled a C. diff. infection twice until his passing in June 2014. Witnessing our father’s battle with a C. diff. infection opened our eyes to the epidemic of healthcare-acquired infections and the thousands of Americans who lose their lives each year from a C. diff.infection with other diagnosis and infections involved. With my sister Kimberly, we are now active in efforts to raise C. diff. awareness, and volunteer for the C Diff Foundation, in hopes of helping to save lives. We work in honor of our father and look forward to the day when C. diff. infections will no longer be a threat in medical facilities worldwide.

I am a C. diff. Survivor and I celebrate eight years since conquering Stage III breast cancer, I also celebrate the miracle of overcoming a C.diff. infection.

Renetta Dudinski

I am a C.diff. survivor land reside in a rural area of Illinois. It was a severe C. diff. infection with many recurrences and I am still recovering from side effects of the infection today. The isolation, severe physical pain, missing my beloved son's wedding, and not being able to visit my elderly father has caused me great emotional pain. One positive avenue found to combat the emotional pain and to help combat this "superbug" is becoming a C Diff Foundation Volunteer to help educate and advocate for C. diff. infection prevention, treatments, environmental safety and save lives at every opportunity and in every community.

Lisa Hurka Covington

I am a C. diff. Survivor. I survived a fourteen month battle with a C.diff, infection beginning in 2012, which forever changed my life. My weight went from 125 pounds, to only 99. After taking over a dozen prescriptions of antibiotics trying to resolve this infection, nothing worked leading to a fecal transplant (FMT), saving my life. Prayers are powerful. "Every negative situation has something positive that one day will evolve."
