Lauren's Mum: Life, Love and Loss

Blog: Welcome

LAUREN'S JUST GIVING PAGE

RAISING MONEY FOR SEPSIS RESEARCH FEAT

I am Lauren's mum.  When my daughter died my whole world changed.  This is my survival story.

As a family we are raising money in Lauren's name for Sepsis Research FEAT.  This charity not only raises awareness about Sepsis, but also funds research into finding better solutions for those it affects.
