      Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

      This has been set up in memory of our little monkey. On the 9th February 2015 Layton who is the little boy in the photo sadly passed away following complications from contracting chickenpox he contracted them on the Wednesday 4th February. As everyone knows chickenpox is a normal childhood illness, his older brother also had chickenpox the week before so we knew that it was only a matter of time before Layton started showing signs of the infection which he did.


      On Sunday the 8th he started to show signs of improvement and back to his normal cheeky little self only to take a turn for the worst, both myself and his mam noticed that his breathing had became heavy and his temperature was high so we took him to our local a and e department where they began to examine him and took blood tests from him they detected a bacterial infection in his blood and admitted him to the ward for observation.

      He then took a major turn for the worst and began to crash the hospital were preparing him to be taken to a specialist hospital by placing him on life support as they had found that he had sepsis, he suffered a massive cardiac arrest and sadly passed away in the early hours of Monday 9th February.




      What Is Sepsis? 


      Sepsis is a life-threatening illness caused by your body’s response to an infection. Your immune system protects you from many illnesses and infections, but it’s also possible for it to go into overdrive in response to an infection. 


      Sepsis develops when the chemicals the immune system releases into the bloodstream to fight an infection cause inflammation throughout the entire body instead. Severe cases of sepsis can lead to septic shock, which is a medical emergency. 


      How can we help?  


      Every year in the UK there are 150,000 cases of Sepsis, resulting in a staggering 44,000 deaths – more than bowel, breast and colon cancer combined. The UK Sepsis Trust (UKST) was established as a charity in 2012 with the objective of saving 12,500 lives every year. We are committed to changing the way the NHS deals with Sepsis, to increasing public awareness and supporting those affected by Sepsis. Every penny you donate is valuable in helping us achieve our goals, together we can help to mend Sepsis.





       It is estimated that it costs just £90 to save a life from Sepsis 


      £5 provides an information booklet to relatives of 10 patients admitted to ITU 


      £10 will allow us to distribute 200 leaflets to a GP surgery 


      £999 will provide one hospital with a 'Sepsis pack' to aid implementation
