on the 4th October 2013 our world was shattered with these words "Emma had been found dead". 

Emma had been ill for a few weeks at the end of August and the begining of September with the Flu and had a throat infection, Emma had been to the doctors and had been given antibiotics. After a week or so she started to feel better and was getting back to her "normal" self. Emma enjoyed freshers week and the start of her 2nd year at Uni

. Emma had her 19th Birthday on the 20th September and she was becoming a independant and happy young woman. We had a family day out on 1st October and again Emma was healthy and happy and looking forward to her new year at Uni and in her flat with her Uni family(Rhona, Alex&Lewis)

On Wednesday night Emma and her Uni family were out , Emma was feeling a little unwell but nothing more than usual. Emmas was still feeling unwell on the Thursday and didn`t go to Uni, her Uni family checked on her and kept her topped up on Juice and food.

Emma had been on "chat" through out the Thursday to a few people as well as txt even with me and a quick call to her dad.

On the Friday her Uni family were getting up for class and went to check on Emma......sadley Emma had passed away.

I can only imagaine the terror and distress this has caused her Uni family......

It was only a week before Christmas that we found out the cause of death for Emma


Until that day we had never heard of this or knew what it was

Please help us spread the word about SEPSIS this is not well know but 37,000 people die of this each year, yet so little know about the symptoms or cause.

Sepsis accounts for 48,000 deaths annually in the UK, that’s more than breast, bowel and prostate cancer put together. Sepsis is what happens when our immune system overreacts to an infection. Symptoms initially present as flu like but can rapidly deteriorate into a life threatening condition.
