Woodland Dutch Bros Fundraiser
Wendi Locatelli is a local mother that resides in Woodland, California. Locatelli was attending her sister’s bridal shower in Humboldt County two months prior. Locatelli was not feeling well and was transported to the emergency room to aid with her fever-like conditions. Locatelli stated that the emergency room sent her home with a flu diagnosis rather than diagnosing her with sepsis. When Locatelli returned to Woodland, her health condition was not improving and later on she was determined to be suffering from sepsis shock. The sepsis shock caused Locatelli’s body to become infected and create dead tissue in her limbs. As a result of this condition, Locatelli’s arm, leg, and fingers were amputated in four surgical procedures at the UC Davis Medical Center.
What Is Sepsis Shock?
Sepsis shock is a condition where an infection can take control throughout the human body and can lead to seriously low blood pressure as a result. The cause of the sepsis shock infection can be created by any kind of bacteria. Sepsis shock can affect the age ranges of the young and the old at any time.

Woodland Community Fundraiser Efforts
Wendi Locatelli worked previously as a dental hygienist for more than ten years at Dr. James Meinert’s Dental Office located in Davis. The dental office Locatelli worked for has raised more than $70,000 for her treatment. The donations were graciously by the office staff, patients of the dental office, and strangers. Many of Locatelli’s dental patients miss her dearly.
Another Woodland community fundraiser effort came from the many individuals lined up at the two Woodland Dutch Bros Coffee shops on Monday morning. The Dutch Bros. Coffee donated funds for the treatment of the Locatelli’s infection. Locatelli stated that if there is any unused money from her treatment donations, she will donate the rest to another family that may be in the same situation that she encountered herself.
