My friend (whose daughter also died of streptococcal septicaemia ) passed this on to me .
It is the actor ,Jason Watkin’s ,post on Facebook
”Christmas is almost here; As you know, it’s a difficult time for my wife Clara and our family. On New Years Day, six years ago, we lost our beautiful, impossibly precious daughter Maude.
She died of Sepsis, just two years into her life.
I have entertained millions of children in the Nativity! films. But the one child I would love to make laugh and see her Daddy be silly and funny, is not here.
Nativity! 2 is being shown on Saturday on BBC2 and is dedicated to Maude. Please look for her name at the end of the movie. But there is another way you can remember Maude. Today, NHS England is launching a Public Awareness Campaign to spot the signs of Sepsis. The early diagnosis of Sepsis is crucial. If it the signs of Sepsis were known within the community as a whole and the Health Service, then Maude would not have died. And she would be sitting, curled up on the sofa with her Mum and Dad, her brothers and sister, watching her Father and his friends, make her and so many other children laugh.
I can’t tell you how much I wish that could happen…
Please look out for Tweets today from @UkSepsisTrust and Retweet like crazy and please share this post. And stop another family from suffering such impossible loss.”
