Thank you for the work you do to get the word out to the public and medical staff. My family also lost a child to sepsis. My sweet niece, Melea, was just four years old when she died this past February. Our hearts are broken but I hope to educate others like you do so as to prevent others from losing loved ones to sepsis. I’ll tell our story since it’s different than others who have posted on here; so people are aware of how bacterial infections can kill so quickly. My niece was a healthy child and didn’t have a cut but somehow acquired Staph A pneumonia that spread into her blood. My brother thought she had the flu because she had been vomiting, had no appetite, had weight loss, lack of energy, and a cough. She was sick for 3-4 days. She seemed to be doing better, eating some with a little more energy when she suddenly stopped breathing. My sister in law performed cpr and she was taken by squad to the hospital icu. She was put on a vent but it was too late. The doctors and nurses did everything they could but her body was shutting down because of the massive amounts of bacteria; she was gone within 12 hours.
