“So that everyone has the best chance to come home”
Blue Forever, Inc. works to increase the awareness for Police Officers Safety, and to raise funds for purchasing lifesaving QuikClot Belt Trauma Kits (BTK*) for law enforcement officers throughout the United States.
My name is Kellie Abbott, and I graduated from Haughton High School in 2013. I am currently a sophomore at Mississippi State University. I designed and sell a signature Blue Forever T-shirt, have local fundraising events, partner with other police supporters, and with the money I raise I donate QuikClot Belt Trauma Kits. I’m now working to raise awareness of my personal goal for every officer in the state of Louisiana and nationwide to be issued a QuikClot Belt Trauma Kit, which contains QuikClot Combat Gauze. These kits help to promote law enforcement safety and could prevent officer traumatic bleeding deaths, like Shreveport Police Sergeant Tim Prunty’s in October 2010. After the death of my friend, Sergeant Prunty, I felt it was important to make an impact on law enforcement safety. Through a news article, I learned about QuikClot hemostatic gauze and how it helps slow down traumatic bleeding until an individual can receive medical treatment. Immediately, I realized QuikClot gauze could have helped to save Sergeant Prunty’s life that night. Having the knowledge of a tool that could help to save a life and address a critical need in law enforcement safety compelled me to continue with my fundraiser to make a difference. So far I have raised over $50,000 and donated 580 QuikClot Belt Trauma Kits to 21 different police agencies in the states of Alabama, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, & New Jersey.
