Victoria said,

 

 

 

“As a mother, I was deeply moved to hear the tragic story of William and the bravery of his parents in campaigning to raise awareness of sepsis and its symptoms. I urge all parents to familiarise themselves with the symptoms of sepis.

 

 

 

The information on sepsis is provided on the NHS website and I encourage everyone to take the time to read the article, as I have, so we can be alert when things are not right with our children:
