Daniel Graham Halford

England Meningococcal Teenager Bereavement
Daniel Graham Halford

Daniel, or Dan as he was known to friends, was a lively young man.

Daniel had spent Monday at Notting Hill Carnival with friends. He had complained of a headache on the Wednesday night and by 6pm Thursday night he was fighting for his life in hospital.

"A huge gap has been left in our lives"

Daniel had complained of a headache and he had taken some paracetomol. Later on he complained of aching legs, we had no idea this was a symptom of meningitis.

He was rushed to hospital the following evening after his dad came home from work to find him collapsed and covered in a rash. Six hours after being induced into a coma and in ITU, Daniel suffered a cardiac arrest and never regained consciousness. He was pronounced brain stem dead four days later.

A huge gap has been left in our lives, a gap that I feel will never be filled.
