On 1st September @Jestuffield launched #aroundtheworldin13days
September is #sepsisawarenessmonth and September 13th is #WorldSepsisDay - Sepsis arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. It may lead to shock, multi-organ failure, and death – especially if not recognized early and treated promptly. Sepsis is the final common pathway to death from most infectious diseases worldwide, including viral infections such as SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19.
These are the FACES of Sepsis and are only a small fraction of the 11 million lives lost each year.
I want this message to reach as many people as we can for those whom we have lost, those that #sepsis has left physically and emotional scarred. For our mothers, our fathers, our sons, our daughters, our aunts, our uncles, our grandparents and our grandchildren who have been affected.
This video is not accompanied by any music and is just over 8 minutes long. This is a way of showing respect to those who have sadly passed away, for the families who have lost a loved one and a thought for those battling the affects Sepsis has left behind, everyday.
( Disclaimer, this video may be upsetting for some however this is real and is happening to families around the world daily )
