The paramedics of the Great Western Air Ambulance joined the paramedics from South Western Ambulance Service and battled for 50 minutes to try and save Jess's live. Unfortunately she passed away at 13.50pm on Wednesday 23rd August 2017.
While attending the hospital earlier in the day the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) to test for Sepsis was used and Jess had a score of 8. By the time we left the hospital Jess's score was back to 1. Known as the 'silent killer' Sepsis is now claiming more than 44,000 lives a year and it is time for the awareness of this to be raised. There were also other queries as to what illness Jess was suffering from these included meningitis, tonsilitis, myocarditis, Group B Streptococcal throat infection, cardiac arrythmia.
By creating this memorial website I am not only sharing our story but also want to share as much information as possible about the illness's and how to approach different senarios such as the inquest. Also give information about your rights as a same sex partner.
My priority is to raise funds for the Great Western Air Ambulance as without public funding they would not be able to keep flying. They need approximately three million pounds a year which goes towards getting equipment, training, helicopter maintenance and many other important things. Donations can be made at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/purplelove-jess (This is for GWAAC) or https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/elayna-reeves which is for donations to be split amongst the charities.
Am also raising funds and awareness of Sepsis. This 'Silent Killer' is taking over 44,000 lives a year and yet so many people know nothing about it. Donations can be made at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jess-purpledreams (This is for Sepsis UK) or https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/elayna-reeves which is for donations to be split amongst the charities.
Jess would want to make a difference to others and through myself I intend to do this in her memory. I have lost the woman I love and for me life will never be the same again. I will never stop loving her as she had such a huge impact on me. Just remember to live life to the full as you never know what is around the corner.
IF YOU CAN MAKE ANY KIND OF DONATION NO MATTER HOW SMALL IT WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.
