The life support machine was kept on till Sunday the 8th May, purely for legal reasons as my mar lost her battle with meningitis so quickly. The sepsis was brutal, crept in so fast. Meningitis is the cruellest, quickest infection we have ever had the misfortune of dealing with.
Unfortunately it's not until you see the brutality of these things that we became aware properly of the illness out there.
In honour of Christina Bentley, please make donations to help the medical profession understand and hopefully one day find the right medicine that is just as aggressive to stop meningitis as quick as it starts.
Meningitis stole my dad’s wife, my mother, my children's Granmar, my grandad’s daughter and my uncle’s sister.
