“Being a regular giver is just one of the ways we support the charity’s work in raising awareness of sepsis. We donate monthly in loving honour of our 3 year old daughter, Emilia, who we miss every single moment of every single day.” The Lopez Family
Emilia was just 3 years old when she passed away from sepsis due to an invasive Strep A infection on Thursday 5 March 2020, leaving behind her mum Caroline, dad Daniel and 6-year-old sister Valentina.
“After leaving the hospital feeling confused and vulnerable I spoke to the support team on numerous occasions. It was an integral part of my recovery, and their knowledge, compassion and professionalism helped me get through difficult times. I’m so grateful, and setting up a monthly donation was the least I could do.” Alan
Alan developed sepsis from an unknown infection. After 2 weeks in an intensive care unit, he survived against the odds, and has since made a good recovery.
“I struggled with my mental health after my baby nearly lost her life to sepsis. Knowing that I could access dedicated support on hand was a real comfort and reassured me that I wasn’t alone. I became a regular giver to express my gratitude. It’s a small amount every month, but if others do the same then the support team will be able to help more people like me.” Louise
Aoife was 9 weeks old when she started to display flu-like symptoms. A few days later she was diagnosed with sepsis and put into an induced coma. Thankfully, she survived and is now happy and healthy.
