In November last year I became critically ill. After being admitted to A&E, I was diagnosed with an extreme form of sepsis whose complications included an incredibly rare disease called haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (1 in a million). I suffered multiple organ failure (heart, lungs, liver, kidney) and my family were told to expect the worst. Fortunately thanks to skill and care of all the staff at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital I survived.
You never expect to go from flu-like symptoms to death’s door in a matter of days but this is the reality of sepsis and what happened to me. Sepsis kills 44,000 people in the UK every year – more than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined but it is rarely talked about. The UK Sepsis Trust aims to improve the way the NHS recognises and treats sepsis and to raise public awareness of this life-threatening disease (in the UK 1 in 3 patients do not survive but this could change with improved recognition of the symptoms).

Event details

50 mile cycle ride

When I came out of hospital after 2 months I could barely walk to the end of my road with a frame. I’m a lot better now but the 50 mile Tour de Broads cycle ride will be a considerable challenge on Sunday 20th August. Thank you for any support you can offer.
