Donate here to save lives in Williams memory

I suspect most of you have seen the extensive coverage we managed to achieve in Williams memory yesterday. We are unreservedly proud to be Williams parents. Please please help us save lives from Sepsis and support the UK Sepsis Trust please donate via the link below to help save a life like Wiliams. 

On behalf of My little angel in William I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to the world for supporting my mummy and daddy in sharing me with the world… Little Angel William xxxx
Finally, after all the interviews yesterday I was told, that my dear 98 year old nan, Winnie May had passed away in the morning, she never managed to see her beautiful great grandson on the television. I’m sure, in fact I know, my beautiful nan is looking after my beautiful son in Heaven, this is for you both, with all my love and thanks, Melissa xxxx

  1. Melissa, you truly are an inspiration. I listened to you on Radio 2 yesterday afternoon, with tears rolling down my face. You talked so articulately and with such bravery. I’m so sorry to hear about your Nan, sending my sincerest condolences to you and your family. xxx


  2. I read yesterday for the first time of your heartbreak and loss, also for the first time I heard of Sepsis. As a Mother of three myself, the oldest being 11, I find it hard to believe there is no awareness widespread to parents and carers alike!

    Such a beautiful baby boy! 💙 Such a tragedy that could so easily have been avoided. I have complete admiration for your courage to firstly carry on and secondly for all of your hard work raising awareness

    Sending lots of love! xx


  3. Mellisa it’s been said a lot, but you really are a true inspiration to us all. You spoke yesterday with such clarity and such bravery through what must have been an icredibly long and painful day. You have achieved so much, this is what you have faught so tirelessly for. Rest in peace baby William and rest in peace your dear nan, as you say they have each other now xxxx


  4. As the father of a 1-year old little boy I was physically upset when I watched you describe your heartbreaking story yesterday. The thought of what you have been through is devastating to me and I thank you for having the courage to speak up about sepsis and the impact it has had on your family. It has raised our awareness immeasurably, I’m just sorry that the cost was so high. Rest in peace baby William, and Nan. x


  5. Melissa I took the service at N. Bovey on Christmas Eve and prayed with you at the end of the service. What you have done since Williams death will I am sure save many many lives. Well done and if there is anything I can do , let me know


    • Bless you thank you so so much. It meant so much to me that we were able to pray for William together on Christmas Eve. It has been entirely overwhelming but it was absolutely necessary. I am very touched that you have got in touch, so thank you 💙


  6. All I have thought about these last 2 days is you and your beautiful angel William, to think that a little boy whom I never had the pleasure to meet has left me feeling so sad and teary. You are an inspiration and you’ll never know just how many lives you have saved and touched. I really hope that one day you will be blessed with a sibling for William. A sibling who William sends to you to make your tomorrows more bearable, until you can all be together again in heaven.


  7. What you have achieved since the death of your lovely boy has been nothing short of amazing. When you must have been overwhelmingly stricken with grief, you carried on fighting for recognition that William was so badly failed by those who should have been able to save him.
    I want to thank you for raising awareness of the devastating condition that sepsis is.


  8. Dear Melissa, Paul and William. I would just like to say how sorry I am for what you have had to endure. Your story has broken my heart. I physically sobbed when I saw the news, and again when I read your blog. I sit here crying while writing this. I just needed to let you know the world is thinking of you and hope you can take some strength and courage from that. Your story has touched me so deeply, maybe because my granddaughter is the same age as William. I cannot comprehend what you are going through. I send you all my love and hugs. Fly high sweet William, the most beautiful little boy in heaven. Xxx


  9. Melissa, thanks to Google, I was able to find several TV reports from Jan. 26 from my computer here in Canada. You spoke eloquently and well. I shared it with my husband and will share it with my church community. My perception is that your grief has made you single-minded in nurturing William’s legacy by raising awareness of sepsis, something I’d never heard of before. I liked when you said, “I’m not going away.” It is a different way of being a mom than you had imagined, and while our hearts break with you and Paul, along with William, I am so proud of you. I also really liked the recommendations that are coming out of this, including changes to the “111” system of questions (in Canada we call it 911). Hard won changes, but you will have no idea of the lives William is affecting for the better and even saving. I will continue to pray for you both as you carry your load of grief.


  10. Dearest Melissa, Paul and beautiful William. I want to express how desperately sad I was when I heard of your tragedy last week. I cannot imagine the heartbreak that you have endured. You have been incredibly brave since your loss. I know William is looking down with pride. I only wish I could do more than donate to the charity. XXX
