Tragic! Mom of two dies from a silent killer


44 year old Lucy Smith 's life was cut short just as she was planning to wed her fiance Darren O'Neill. The mom of two caught a disease while gardening as she scratched the back of her hand.

Lucy from Essex died just days after she scratched her hand and fell ill as it eventually turned to blood poisoning Essex life reports.

A mum-of-two died from a 'silent killer' condition she caught from scratching the back of her hand while gardening.

The couple had just bought a new home when the family law solicitor was struck down with sepsis that causes 44,000 deaths each year - more than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined.

Now her family of Lucy, who attended Ingrave Johnson Primary School in Brentwood before going on to St Martins in Hutton, want to highlight the dangers of the life-threatening condition - also referred to as blood poisoning or septicaemia, which is triggered by an infection or injury.


Her sister Caroline said: "Don't underestimate this prolific killer. Every year in the UK there are 150,000 cases of Sepsis, resulting in a staggering 44,000 deaths – more than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined.
