Beneficiary: For the past 10 years, the HER Foundation has become the largest grassroots campaign dedicated to Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) education and research. HG is a debilitating and potentially life-threatening pregnancy disease marked by rapid weight loss, malnutrition and dehydration due to unrelenting nausea and/or vomiting with potential adverse consequences for the newborn(s). HG is the second leading cause of hospitalization during pregnancy, yet few dollars are granted for research.

Just in the past two years, the HER Foundation has donated a total of $45,000 to HG research at both USC and UCLA. This research has aided medical professionals to prove that HG is a genetic condition.
