SEPSIS awareness campaigner Melissa Mead was in Asda this week raising awareness of this potentially fatal condition while raising funds for The Sepsis Trust.

Melissa from Penryn has campaigned all over the world as well as on television, following the tragic loss of her young son, William, from Sepsis.

Her tireless work has meant many changes with our own health service and more and more surgeries and health centres are promoting the symptoms and encouraging people to think and ask... "Could it be Sepsis?"

Lisa Kirkpatrick, ASDA Falmouth Community Life Champion, said: "As the community life champion for the store and a mum myself, I was delighted to get her in this Christmas period to help raise this awareness and share her story with our customers.

"Just a few hours into her being here and she's already made a big impact on those she has spoken to.

"Her Facebook page 'A Mother without a Child' is followed by many, including myself and she and her family, are a huge inspiration to all those who know her and indeed to those whose lives have been saved thanks to her tireless work with the rust."
