Meet Jayne.

In March 2004 her daughter Emma died at the age of 13 following a cardiac arrest.

“Emma came home from school, got changed and went to a friend’s house. That was the last time I saw her alive. I got a call to say she’d collapsed. I rushed round to her friend’s and saw her being given CPR. She died in hospital that night.”

“In the weeks after her death I wanted to die myself – I just wanted to go and join Emma. But I kept going for my other children.”
