Story

Daniel, or Dan as he was known to friends, was a lively young man. 

He had spent Monday at Notting Hill Carnival with friends in September 2010. He had complained of a headache on the Wednesday night and by 6pm on the Thursday night he was fighting for his life in hospital. 

Daniel had complained of a headache and he had taken some paracetamol. Later on he complained of aching legs – we had no idea this was a symptom of meningococcal septicaemia. 

He was rushed to hospital the following evening after his dad came home from work to find him collapsed and covered in a rash.

Six hours after being induced into a coma and in ITU, Daniel suffered a cardiac arrest and never regained consciousness. He was pronounced brain stem dead four days later. 

A huge gap has been left in our lives, a gap that I feel will never be filled.
