About Our Foundation

We established The Rory Staunton Foundation after our son’s death from sepsis in April 2012. Our overriding goal is to ensure that no other child or young adult dies of sepsis resulting from the lack of a speedy diagnosis and immediate medical treatment.

Our Mission

To reduce the number of sepsis-caused deaths through:

  • Raising public awareness of sepsis through education and awareness programs to promote faster diagnosis and effective treatment for children and young adults
  • Improving medical diagnosis of sepsis, particularly pediatric sepsis, through the implementation of rapid treatment protocols and improved communication between parents and medical staff in hospitals and medical clinics
  • Supporting those affected by sepsis and providing a platform for their voices to be heard.
